No, really the end IS near!

OMG! As of last night I'm fingertip dilated with a soft cervix, and I'm waiting for a call back from the doctor to confirm that I'll be induced on Tuesday night and deliver Wednesday morning! But, I could go into labor on my own at any time! I'm terrified of being induced, but it is what it is, and well, she'll be here!

Less than a week!

The end is near!

On Monday I had my now weekly OB appointment, and was informed that the kiddo will be making her appearance no later than my due date of August 9th because of the gestational diabetes. I'm terrified. Who thought this was a good idea?

As much as I'm terrified at the prospect of the end being firmly in sight, I'm also ready to be done with being pregnant. The pressure and ache in my pelvis is sometimes unbearable, especially first thing in the morning. It literally pains me to go from laying to standing, and takes me a minute or two to actually take a step once I get myself upright. As the day wears on it seems I feel less pressure, which makes no sense to me, but I guess it is what it is.
