Tomorrow is D-Day!!!

I went to Windy's office today (my OB) and she said she wanted to jump start my labor tomorrow!!! I'm excited, scared, worried, happy and relieved all at the same time. I know my actual due date isn't for a few more weeks, but I was told that my baby is going to be really big if he stays in much longer. Callie and Tyler were both born 20 days early and were still good sizes. So apparently I make big babies.

Windy said she will just do a quick procedure in her office tomorrow morning which should trigger some good labor contractions, and then meet up with me a little later at the hospital after I've progressed. I don't think it will take much to get me going because I've been having regular contractions for months now. I'm actually really surprised that I've made it this far. I'm sure that if we weren't doing this tomorrow I would still have him in the next few days. This weekend will be great timing because Brian, being a teacher, hasn't worked ALL summer, but now he happens to be in the middle of a two week job. So I'm really happy that he wont have to take time off work.

Callie, Tyler and Eric are so excited. Tyler wanted to tell everyone. So I let him call and tell my mom and a few other people. Callie cant wait to see her new brother. She helped me pick out an outfit to bring him home in. Eric is excited because we are all excited. I don't think he understands what is going on. I 'm really looking forward to seeing how he reacts to all of this.
Brian is excited too. He tells Eric to say "Come out baby Jake and play with me!" .

So, hopefully everything will be fast and pain free! I wish I could walk into the hospital tomorrow feeling fine, get an epidural and have the baby without feeling a thing! That would be soooo great....

Anyway, I hope that this time tomorrow I'll be holding my little baby! I cant wait to see what he looks like. I cant wait to hold him. I cant wait to show him to our other kids.
Wow, I hope I can sleep tonight ;).
