I'm having trouble evicting my Squatter

I went into the hospital at 430am yesterday morning for my induction.  They got me checked in and started me on gel.  I had three gel treatments that consisted of gel inserted into my cervix to get it softened and effaced.  They would insert the gel and I would lay there for an hour then they would have me walk the hospital for 40 minutes.  They would do an internal check to see my progress and repeat the progress.  I started at 2cm dilated and 75% effaced...I ended the three treatments at 2.5 cm dilated and 80% effaced.  Since my body was not responding I got to do the walk of shame and head home.  I am going back in to try again tomorrow night.  I hope they have a better plan for me.  They are still concerned with my high blood pressure and the protein levels in my urine so they are ready to induce.  I am now 39 weeks so I hope my body realizes its job soon and we are able to successfully able to evict my Squatter!  More to come!!!

37 Weeks

I just wanted to check  in with everyone.  I am still here and still pregnant!  Squatter is doing great and seems to be getting big.  She is measuring in the 75%.  My blood pressure went up pretty high this week so I had a fun hospital stay.  I am now at home and on BP meds and I have a follow up OB appointment on Monday.  I am on bed rest until then.  I am getting excited to meet this little girl.  I hope that the next time I have to go to the hospital it's to have her!
