Shit Just Got Real

It's funny how things work out. Ever since the baby shower, which went well and I should have written about, everyone's been telling Melissa that she looks big. "Are you having twins?" "I swear that kid is coming before August." "This is your fault!" That last one was Melissa complaining about our supposed ten pound baby. Anyway, no one really thought that we'd make it to our August 24th due date. Well, they were right.

We came in on Thursday for a routine check up. I have a class Thursday nights and I had a paper due so I wasn't sure if I was going to come in with her or not. Fortunately I finished it up and went in with her, and thank Baby Jesus that I did. The doctor found that her blood pressure was high so she decided on running some tests. As a precaution, she was going to keep her overnight for observation. Well, to make a long story short, it's now Saturday morning and we're still here.

The baby is fine and Melissa is doing well but in everyone's best interest they've decided to induce labor. God willing, I'll be a daddy by the end of the day.
