3cm ~ maybe we can avoid that induction after all!

So when my left ankle blew up this afternoon, I took mom's advice and called the doctor. (Well, first I called Molly, but since she was at work and no one at L&D answered the phone, I figured she was busy with her patients.) So I called my OB's office and the nurse said I had to come in so they could make sure it wasn't a blood clot.

Luckily it wasn't. Just lots and lots of water retaining going on. FUN. The other fun thing was that I got to have another internal exam (ouch!) and I found out that in 24 hours time I dialated another 1.5cm and my cervix is very soft!!! Yippee!!!

I called Ben and had him come home just in case (he was on his way anyway). His eyes were so big when he walked in the door tonight. Made me laugh. We went on a 30 minute walk, and now I'm just resting.

That's the update. :) I don't know if I'll be able to sleep tonight ~ I'm so excited to meet this little guy!!!

Are you sure you're having a boy? HAHA! They say that boys are usually born early. :D
