I can't believe we are full term today!! I've made some progress on my own, about a week ago I was 3.5cm and 50% effaced, so we are hoping I may go into labor on my own....but if not because of our history we will be induced Friday! So close! I'm so thankful, still no signs of pre-e (knock on wood!).
Married the love of my life 7/11/2009
Our first child, Peyton Mark, was born sleeping at 33 weeks on Oct. 25th 2011. Developed pre-e at 32 weeks.
Pregnant again with what I pray is our rainbow baby, due Oct. 14th 2012. Will induce labor no later than 38 weeks if we make it that far!
