Hi There,

I just got back from the Doctor's office and the BIG NEWS is that he is inducing me on Tuesday, May 20th at 37 and a half weeks. That's 16 days early. He STRONGLY feels that something is restricting her growth and she would be better off outside with us than inside at this point. I am very disappointed that I won't be ableto go into labor naturally but I know that God has a plan and we just want Adalie to be ok.

SO, on Monday the 19th we will go into the office for our last ultrasound and cervix check. PLEASE PRAY that she will be at least 5 pounds I can't even imagine a smaller baby than that. Then on Monday evening I will check into the hospital and they will put in a suppository of Cervadil to soften the cervix (I am already 1cm dilated and 50% effaced as of this morning) and then on Tuesday morning the 20th they will start the pitocin drip to induce labor.

By Tuesday evening we will be parents! WOW, this is a crazy feeling, to know we are SO CLOSE to meeting her. My Mom is flying in on Monday to be with us for the delivery and will stay for about 2 weeks. We are so thankful for her help! Please keep us in your prayers.

More to Come, a whole lot more,
Meghan and James

That's a great day for a baby to be born (It's our wedding anniversary!) I know you will be just fine and Adalie will get here safe and sound.
That's when Gavin arrived and he (obviously) was and is just fine. You all are in our prayers!!
