Ready...Get Set...Wait!

Today we finally got scheduled in for our induction! We are on the books-in ink-and wait.

The big day is February 21st at the butt-crack of dawn. Literally-it will be dark out or just barely dawning when we arrive at the hospital at 5:45am. I guess our doc likes to do his inducing before breakfast. Ha.

Being induced on the 21st gives Baby Bug some incentive for a quick and easy labor though. If she wants her own birthday she'll have to be born in 18 hours or less (a feat Monkeypants wasn't compelled to accomplish, being born 23 hours and 47 minutes after his induction) because hubby's birthday is on the 22nd. Not that Hubby minds sharing his birthday-he thinks having our daughter on his birthday would be the coolest present ever-and while babies are certainly better than cake I can understand the desire to have your own special day....but if she wants it she'll have to boogie her booty through the birth canal!

I can't believe that we are only 37 days away from meeting our sweet little Baby Bug...I'm so excited I can barely stand it!
