Vanessa's birthday will be next week!
The doctors have been monitoring my amniotic fluid levels for the past few weeks because my levles have been running a little low. I guess they're supposed to be somewhere in the range of 8 to 10 cm (depth of fluid), and mine are an 8. Each week from here on out, my levels are supposed to drop a little, so to be on the safe side, the doctors are going to induce me a little early. If they can schedule me in at the hospital next week, they will! The doctors say that she is fully developed at 37 weeks and fine to be born any time now. Because she'll be induced, James and I can plan ahead for her, and we won't have to drive to the hospital in the middle of the night or in the wee hours of the morning. Plus we'll get to meet our baby very soon! I'll post our delivery date as soon as I know.
