After three days of inducement/labor, Theod.ore Pet.er made his appearance on 9/10/10 at 12:40a. He weighed 5lbs 11oz and was 19.5 inches long. He has been acting slightly premature and we have been trying to overcome his jaundice. We did get to bring him home on Sunday and have enjoyed every minute of it. I will try to get our birth story posted this week but here are some pictures to tide you over!

Well, we went in for the amnio this morning and there wasn't enough fluid to do the amnio so we are at the hospital getting induced. They are starting the cervadil since my cervix wasn't favorably enough to break my water. This is at least a 12 hour process so we shouldn't have any major changes until the morning.

No baby for me! They only wanted to soften my cervix I guess which I was already doing on my own. 80% Effaced and Fingertip dilated. However, even if I wasn't, they wouldn't have done anything. My doctor wants to induce before I get sick but the hospital says I am not sick enough to induce. Soooo... New plan is that I go for an amnio on Tuesday and if baby's lungs are healthy, they will officially induce me on Wednesday by breaking my water. That is.... Unless I go naturally by myself, which the doctor thought I could. Soooo... I am still hanging here!

I bailed on the challenge. It has been an interesting couple of weeks. I was put on bedrest for pregnancy induced hypertension and have been down to labor and delivery 4 times for monitoring. Baby looks good but they are starting "soft inducement" today. AGH! I am 37 weeks today and they expect baby to be "fully cooked" but I am still a little nervous. They are going to start softening my cervix and it make take a couple of times before anything actually puts me in labor so we still could be a couple of days away. I will try to keep everyone updated as we progress through the next couple of days!!!!
