I'm having a baby on Thursday. It's kind of weird to think of it like that, knowing that I'm going to walk into the hospital Thursday morning, still very pregnant, and by the end of the day have a baby boy in my arms. It's weird to plan for something like that.

We had a doctor's appointment today, and we've decided to induce labor. Isaac's estimated fetal weight is nine pounds, 10 ounces, which means he could weigh anywhere between eight and 11.5 pounds. Our doctor doesn't see any benefit to waiting and letting Isaac get any bigger, so we're going to go ahead and start and IV of Pitocin early Thursday morning. Hopefully, after the doctor breaks my water, I can start laboring on my own and we can turn the drugs off. I'm still hopeful for a natural delivery, even if I'll be birthing a toddler. Please send us all your prayers and good thoughts.
