At Hospital!

I wanted to go ahead an give a quick update! Currently I am sitting in the hospital bed being monitored and all that jazz. I'll be here all night...

We had our 38 week appointment today and the doctor decided now was the time! We had our normal BPP and NST and everything looked just great. I measured at 1.5cm and all other stats were normal. The only concern was the grade of the placenta. Last week the placenta measured at a grade 2 and today it measured at a grade 3. Basically and eventually a placenta will stop giving enough nutrients and blood flow and will begin to calcify. With mine going up there was a little bit of concern. SOOO....we are being induced! It is kind of a surreal experience right now and I don't know if it has really even sunk in yet.

We left the office at 4PM and had to be back at the hospital by 6PM to start the process. I jotted a quick note on facebook just to let everyone know where we were headed and I knew I would have a chance to update once we got settled into the hospital. So for now we are here and just waiting for the meds and BG to do their thing. The nurse said that in most cases a baby would be here between noon and 2PM. I am thinking it might be earlier than that - but it will be soon regardless! I promise to add more details and information later! Please say a prayer that everything will go well and that little BG will be a healthy baby!
