Evelyn's ETA

I am 38 1/2 weeks...and just maybe a little : ) hormonal.
I waited at the Doctors office this morning from before 10:45am until just about 1:00pm. Sadly, this is a typical and weekly occurance at the Doctors office. My really-sweet, also-pregnant friend Victoria watched Carlisle during the 2+ hour wait.
So, the Doctor comes in, checks to see if I am further along in the dilation process...No.
He says ok, see you in a week.
I couldn't help it...the flood gates opened. I actually told him that didn't work for me. I am ready right now.
Thankfully and luckily for me, he was sympathetic. He agreed instead to schedule next Tuesday as Evelyn's induction/arrival day!
First he wants to do an ultrasound on Monday to see that her fetal weight is high enough. Externally, she is measuring small.
If all looks ok in the ultrasound on Monday, Tuesday is Evelyn's day!
Yippee!!! Celebrate!!!
