The Plan

It is hard to believe we are getting to the point of it being just hours instead of days until we meet Cupid!   The plan is that we will call the Birth Center at 6:30 in the morning just to make sure there wasn't an influx of women in labor that arrived overnight.  As long as all is well, we will head to the hospital and the fun will begin!

MJ was approved today to take the rest of this week and all of next week off, so she is working this afternoon to get her sub plans done.  It's times like this that being a teacher is a pain- you can't just take the day off - you have to leave plans which are a huge amount of work.   The nice thing is that once she leaves today, she will be home for the next 11 days.  That will be so nice!!!  Technically, according to our teachers' contract, she is only "allowed" 3 family sick days, and next Wed and Fri are days we are not allowed to take off because they are before and after a holiday (Veteran's Day) but we have an awesome Superintendant who is great about granting leave above and beyond.

I believe that I have started some early labor today.  I have had terrible lower back pain that just keeps getting worse and I have also started to lose my mucous plug.   I am excited that my body is starting to do things on its own so maybe the induction tomorrow won't take too long.

That's the plan from here!

How exciting! Shouldn't she be able to take Family Medical Leave?

Ohhhh that is SO exciting! I wish you the best of luck for a smooth labor and delivery. Since your body is already on its way the induction should be much easier.
Please don't forget to update us! Even if its just a 3 line post. ;)
