Eviction Time.....

Well, I know I said I would update last Thursday, but things were up in the air until yesterday!! Little Miss Turtle should be making her forced appearance by this time tomorrow!!!! I started having issues with my blood sugar last week, and Tuesday night I thought for sure the time had come, but it was just a false alarm, and when we were 15 minutes from the hospital, the contractions stopped outright!! UGH So Thursday I went for the U/S and they said she looked good and was prolly at 6 pounds 8 or 9 ounces. I saw the midwife after that, and she and I agreed that with the blood sugar issues that it was time to see if the doc would induce... the one that would, would only do it on the 17th, but she still wanted to see me this past Tuesday to check on me again. She told me when I saw her that she was hoping that just the threat of induction would make her come out!! LOL uh nope this is my kid we are talking about here!!! We think that she already has white coat syndrome!!! So at 8 pm tonight I will be getting induced, and she should be here some time tomorrow afternoon if all goes well. I will update as soon as I can to let Blog Land know how it went!!! Hugs to all of you!!!!!

I want to be the first to congratulate you on the arrival of Little Miss Turtle! I know that she isn't born at the time of writing this, but I also know that you will most likely not be able to give us an update until well after she has entered this world. Hope the delivery goes well. May she be a great feeder, sleeper and a terrifically happy little baby! Congratulations to you again, and your family! xxx Kaysie

Well over here the 17th has come and gone and it would be about 7am on the 17th your time.
It is my most fervent wish that you had a quick uneventful labour and that little Miss Turtle is in your arms gazing into your eyes and plotting the many cheeky escapades that will keep you laughing for years to come!!
Don't forget to take that bear skin nudie pic to display proudly at her 21st birthday party just because you know the embarressment it will undoubtably cause and savour every second of her existance.
I wish you years of joy and tears of happiness lots of gooey sticky kisses and fingerprints on your glass windows.
Blessings to you Kent Clark and Miss Turtle.
