the end is near

Yesterday was exciting, yet nerve racking at the same time. I had my appointment yesterday. Not much to update as far as progress-I was 1 1/2 cm dilated, 80% effaced. The rash I have is out of control. They sent me to the lab to have a blood test to test for PUPS (I don't know much about it) Anyway, the lab wouldn't do it because I have to fast for 8-12 hrs before the test. So I am doing it tomorrow morning. This test also takes 14 days to get the results back because they send the blood work to Mayo clinic. My doctor feels that we really won't know what this is until after the baby is born. Well, because they wouldn't do it, they are sending me to a dermatologist, which is fine. They are going to do some biopsy's in a couple of spots to determine what it may be. In the mean time I am just hanging out waiting for my next appointment or labor to kick in. That was until I got a phone call that they want to schedule me for a induction. When you ask-NEXT WEEK! So, next Wednesday I am being induced at 5:30 am. I am very scared and very excited all at the same time. Because the doctor doesn't know what is causing this rash, she doesn't want to take any chances. This could all change tomorrow as well. If the biopsies turn out bad, they are going to induce asap, otherwise next week is the day!!

Anyway, I am off to dinner with my crabby husband. Today is our 2 year wedding anniversary. I picked up our piece of crap laptop that we spend a good deal of money getting fixed, and guess what? It doesn't work. So he is been dealing with that all afternoon and is not a happy camper-I don't blame him, but what can we do? Why waste energy getting angry?

Yay!!! That's so exciting! I know you will be relieved to have your little man here in your arms. I hope the rash isn't anything serious...could it be hormonal? Keep us updated if you go into labor!!!!!!
