Weekly update July 23 - July 29
Good morning ladies
Yes I'm still here...still pregnant...41 weeks 4 days to be exact.
Physically I can't complain, I feel pretty darn good for how pregnant I am and for how hot it's been. Mentally on the other hand it's been a tough week. They tell you going into it that an EDD is just that, an estimate. But they really don't prepare you for how it feels to hit that date and then a day..2 days...3 days etc etc beyond it. It's hard when everyone around you, even those due weeks after you are having their babies and you haven't. If I hear one more time "Seriousy! You haven't had that baby yet!!" I just might explode! I know it comes from a good place and everyone is VERY excited to meet little H, but come on people I'm not holding back on purpose I swear. Phew! ok mini rant over :)
At my 41 week appt my fluid checked out beautifully and I was a whopping 1cm dialated 50% effaced. My Dr and I decided that if I hadn't gone into labor naturally than I would head into the hospital Wed evening at 7:30 for an induction. As frustrating as being overdue as it is, I really would like to avoid an induction so we agreed that as long as baby is fine we'll give my body the maximum time to get this process rolling on it's own before we hit 42 weeks. The fun silver lining to all of this is that if I do have to be induced chances are she would be born on Thursday, which happens to be DH's birthday :)
I'll keep you all posted, until then I hope everyone that is still pregnant is feeling well and those who have just delivered are happy and home snuggling those little bundles!!
