The long wait is finally coming to an end! We are anticipating the birth of our sweet baby Ella, which is expected to arrive any day now. Last week I had my cervix checked and found I am 80% effaced and dilating. Dr. Moon couldn’t tell how many centimeters because baby’s head was too low. I am scheduled for induction this coming Tuesday, October 30 if she doesn’t make her debut sooner. Such a surreal feeling. I am going to be a mommy!! I was pleasantly surprised by how well my pregnancy has gone, aside from the morning (all day) sickness in the first tri. My hormones have been pretty level, no weird food cravings, cleaning like a maniac and happy nearly everyday! I couldn’t have imagined a better pregnancy. Now, the best part is almost here!! I am so looking forward to holding and kissing our little baby. The feelings going through me at this moment are anxiousness, excitement, happiness and fear (for labor of course).
