We are having a baby!

Just got home from my last OB appointment. It was wonderful! I have the best doctors. Shepherd is nice and low. My cervix is still facing the wrong way, but it is softening and he could feel the baby's head on the other side. So my OB was very happy about that. He scheduled me to check in the hospital tomorrow evening (Thursday) at 6pm. He will start me on cervidil and let that sit overnight. At 6am Friday morning he will start me on pitocin. He said the cervidil might start the contractions too. We'll have to see how my body reacts to it. We will have our laptop with us so we will keep our blog up to date.
Also, I have lost 9 pounds total from my pre-pregnancy weight. Can't wait to see how much I lose after he is born and we start nursing.=)
My Mom is driving up here tomorrow and she will be here around 1pm. I am so glad she will be a part of this with Marvin and I.

This makes me so happy, I almost cried! (... I'm not sure why I became an emotional person!)
I hope every thing goes well and little Shepherd (I still can't spell Shepherd and I'm ALMOST 26!) is here soon!! :)
