Progress...

Had an internal at the Doc's this morning. Michael is on the move! All that pressure I've been feeling the last 2 days has amounted to the following:

1-2 Centimeter's dilated
Lower/Anterior Cervix Position
80% Effaced
-2 Station
"Soft" Cervix

Doctor says to get my butt in motion (ie, go walking) and I should have this kid out in no time!

We did discuss induction at great length. The doctor said that I shouldn't feel anxious about the size of the baby; that my body will be able to handle this kid. However, she can appreciate that he has been measuring several weeks ahead. With that in mind, Doctor gave me the go ahead to be induced on December 29th. That is my official "39" week mark and no amnio will be required in order to have an induction at that point. However, based on my "progress" the Doctor said she wouldn't be surprised to see me in the hospital this weekend.

Woo hoo!
