How I'm feeling...
No baby girl has arrived. Today was not a good day. I was planning on getting induced tomorrow (bags in car just in case he wanted to keep me there), but I am not close to having a baby.
What is happening? I have no idea. Maybe she is rethinking this whole Brooke McCoy will be my mama thing, but I think I might be pregnant much longer. For those labor terms I am still very high and not ready.
So don't ask, I will let you know or maybe you will here my shouts for joy from your house. Cause I pretty much told everyone (cause the doc told me) that I was getting induced tomorrow, and now how to retract. I am not in charge, my kids are waiting for their sister. Jason has been very busy at work so is probably secretly glad, but I was the girl with early contractions who is now feeling forever pregnant.
Just for the record, I've probably consumed 170 tums, give or take ten either way.
Have a very limited wardrobe left all including elastic waistbands.
Food is no longer appealing except for the short list including bologna sandwiches with miracle whip and potato chips smashed inside on white bread (maybe she loves this healthy diet) and consoling myself with my mom's hot fudge.
Also feel bad that my mom is here for now a while where she hasn't been home for months and only had a one week with my dad in between Courtney's trip and mine.
But what can I do? Apparently nothing. Walking my hills hasn't helped and I am not new to all the various ways to induce babies...no thank you castor oil (been there, done that). I am crabby and just going to try and keep myself as busy as possible for the next few days.
Next appointment is Friday so we will access then.
Also for record, here are my birthing stats.
Luke, born on due date at 7 lbs 6 oz
Darby, born day before due date at 7 lbs 10 oz
Baylie, born 9 days before due date at 6 lbs 14 oz (but need to verify weight)
Paisley, born 13 days before due date at 7 lbs something, even more recent can't remember, does someone want to check my blog in Sept 2009 and let me know?
Baby #5 .....now 8 days before due date, but the pregnancy I've had the most trouble with has decided she wants to cook longer.
My labors and recovery have all been pretty much the same, but progressively easier each baby (although I wish I would've gotten my epidural sooner with P, cause I was a 6).
I've never had a scheduled induction. At this point, little baby just has to descend so I don't have to have a c-section. Wouldn't that throw me for a loop? Come on baby, drop.
