Baby update!

Well, I went to the Doctor, or Midwife as the case was. And I don't know if I am dilated because my cervix is still high, but she said with fourth babies it sometimes stays high until the contractions start. (I am thinking to help the baby not fall out!) But my cervix is soft, so that is good. Also I tested positive for Group B Strep. (A Bacteria that grows and moves around your insides, nothing horrible. It can be present in the vaginal area and be passed to baby and cause problems tho.) SO this means that since my last labor was only 6 hours and they need 8 to give me the antibiotic, that they are going to induce me. If I haven't had the baby by the 17th of November, I will be induced and they will give me the antibiotic. She said they would start me at a very low dose of pitosin (spelling?) and after I had had one bag, 4 hours, they would up the dose and give me the second bag. So yay, only one week and one day left, if I make it till then. If not, then I have to hurry in and get started on the antibiotic and if I don't get it all in before she is born, than they will have to test her and maybe give her antibiotics also. So I will be in the hospital for at least 48 hours. 
I have faith that the Lord will take care of us and all will work out one way or another. But that is my story! 

For now I am walking and trying to get my house all put together for company and the arrival of this baby girl! And Dustin is sick, Viral Bronchitis, so they have nothing to give him but the over the counter stuff he has been taking, that hasn't been helping! They put him on bed rest, but you try getting a VERY active guy to sit still when there is stuff to do! (Last time he had this, he still ran his 2-8 miles a day! And went to work!) So considering that, he is taking it a little easier! He isn't running as much since it is cold and it hurts to breath the cold air. 
The kids are all good and very excited about the arrival of there new baby sister, as well as Grandma coming to visit!
