baby update

I had my final doctor appointment this morning. We are all set and scheduled for induction on the 17th (next Wednesday). The reason I am being induced is that since my last labors have gone so quickly, Dr. Burgoine (who is totally awesome, btw) is worried that if I go into labor on my own that I won't make it to the hospital in time, or that I won't have time to recieve proper anesthesia. Plus, I am pretty sure this baby is already HUGE. Dr. B says by next week I am probably on track for having a mid 8lb-er. I couldn't imagine how much bigger she'd be if we waited another whole week! YIKES!
It is so surreal to me. I have been so busy and caught up with life that it just doesn't seem real that I am giving birth in just 5 days! We are all very excited and can't wait to welcome this new addition to our family!
