I am dialated to a...

3 and they sent me on my way.

I have been having contractions off and on for the past three days. Nothing horribly painful but enough to keep me up at night. I went in this afternoon to get checked even though I am scheduled for my induction on Sunday. You see if I don't have this baby by 9am tomorrow I can't have him until Sunday. It just doesn't work in my schedule, so I wanted to see what all my body was doing.

The reason he doesn't fit in my schedule is because Carter has a neurology appointment Friday morning an hour and a half away. I would need to leave here by 9am to make it there in time. This is a very important appointment and one we have waited a whole month for and something that can't be rescheduled. Then later on in the afternoon my mother flies in to the airport in so said city. Therefore after 9am on Thursday is a no go and all day Friday is a no go.

Have I mentioned that I am coaching T-ball. Well, I am coaching Bryson and Carter's team. Saturday is the opening season and in the morning is the ceremony and later that afternoon is their first game. So having a baby on Saturday doesn't work either unless it's after 5pm.

So, I guess secretly I was just hoping to be four centimeters so they would admit me and get things going because I fear this baby is going to want to come when he isn't suppose to.

Now I am kicking myself in the ass for saying "I wish I new what it was like to go into labor by myself!" Even though this is my third child I have never gone into labor naturally, I have always been induced. These contractions I am feeling is a first for me. I feel like such a newbie!!
