YAY!!!  I'm so excited!!!

My midwife stopped seeing my when I was 39wks, she told me not to make any more appts.  So last week, after I had passed my due date, I called up to L&D and asked them what I should do.  They had me schedule an NST, which I went in for this morning.  Everything on the NST looked good, Abby's heartrate is right on track, I'm not having contractions or anything.  So then they did an ultrasound to check fluid levels, which there's plenty of so nothing to worry about there either.  The doctor asked me when I was scheduled to be induced (she assumed I was still seeing my midwife).  So I explained to her what was going on, that my midwife basically let me fall through the cracks (which is all to common in Army hospitals I hear).  She asked if there was anything that was concerning me or making me uncomfortable as far as letting labor come naturally.  I told her that the baby is constantly on my lungs, making it VERY difficult to breathe...I literally have to stop whatever I'm doing and try to get my breathing on track again too many times during the day.  And it's for that reason she decided to have me induced, since I am already in my 41st week.

SO, I'm on the schedule for tomorrow :)  I have to call as soon as I get up in the morning and find out when I'm supposed to be there. 

I CAN FINALLY SEE THE LIGHT AT THE END OF THE TUNNEL!!!!
