She's a Comin'!

I had my 39 week appointment today. I had zero expectations that were good. Last week I hadn't progressed any and being the emotional wreck I am I cried for 20 minutes because he said if she didn't come by the 2nd or 3rd we'd "talk" about starting me. I was so worried she'd be late. I admit now, I over reacted. Anyway, I was expecting similar news today. I went in and they took my weight. That's the least fun part but my doctor said I've done awesome this last month because I've only gained a half a pound! Then they took my blood pressure. Nothing new - except it was pretty high. My blood pressure has been phenomenal this whole pregnancy so the nurse said "Hm, that's high. How come?" I said I didn't know because truthfully, I didn't :). She asked if I've been having any cramps or contractions. I told her I had been having pains this week. So she gave me my wrap to put on and told me to lay down. Right away my doctor came in and asked how I was doing. I told him I was ready to be done. I also told him I've had a bad cough for the past few days but I'm not sick and asked if that was normal. Anyway, long story short he said my body is ready to be done. I have mild preeclampsia, thus explaining the high blood pressure. He measured my stomach and said "I'm thinking we need to get this baby out of you next week". I said "That's great!" But I was thinking he meant her due date. Then he said, "I'm talking like, Monday." Now for someone who was expecting to hear that I needed to wait another week, 3 days was shocking. I'm sure my face went pale and I chocked out, "Really?" He then checked me and I'm dilated to a 2 now. Then they had me lay down for a few minutes. They came back in and checked my blood pressure and it had dropped 30 some odd points just from laying down. So he then told me I had preeclampsia and that I could deliver either Monday or Wednesday, it was up to me. I had NO idea what to say. Finally he recommended I go in Sunday night at 10:00 p.m. and they'd induce me and I'd deliver Monday. All I could do was look at him and say "okay" like an idiot. I must have looked funny cause he kept chuckling to himself. I left in a complete daze and was in shock for a while. The last thing I expected was to deliver her in 3 days. I called Cory and told him. It's actually quite terrifying knowing when the whole event is going to happen. We're so excited and I can't wait to see her and not be pregnant anymore!!! But I'm also very scared. Cory is just beside himself. He's so ready to be a daddy. So that's the latest. She'll be a June baby and she's coming 5 days early. We'll post pictures as soon as possible.
