I do NOT want to be induced!!!

I went into the doctors this morning for a routine ob check up and ended up with a lot more than I had expected! To start, my blood pressure was up. I wasn't anxious and hadn't rushed around that morning, so it didn't make much sense as to why it was up. Well, I did gain 5 lbs this week.... which my midwife said was all fluid. Though it sucks, I am so relieved at the same time because I have never been so swollen in my life! At least now I know it's temporary! On top of this I'm dilated to 3cm. Which could mean nothing, but considering that it's my 3rd and how quickly I had Jellybean, it is a little nerve racking.

Anyway... long story short, they wanted to induce me tomorrow, but I really don't want to be induced. I don't want to pick my baby's birthday, and I don't want to spoil the only surprise I have left! So they did some blood work, took my blood pressure 3 more times and did a sonogram. At the end of it all I think they still wanted to induce me, but there was no problem with the baby, and no huge issues with me yet. So they let me go home. I'm a little torn between what to do now. I really don't want to be induced, but I am so ready to meet this little guy.

But until he comes, here are some awesome sonogram pics that they were able to get today... at 39weeks 3days!! The top one is a picture of him with his toe in his eye! :) And the other is just a great face shot!!! I thought these were so cool!!

Aren't the new sonogram pictures amazing?!? It's so cool how much detail they can show.

Hope everything works out well. Keep an eye on that BP!
