Wow… I can’t believe I just titled a post that! I’m officially 2 weeks more pregnant than I’ve ever been, which pretty much blows my mind. I had my weekly prenatal appointment yesterday at my midwife’s house, and I pretty much just sat on his couch moaning I can’t believe I’m still pregnant and here for another appointment while he laughed at me and told me the baby would come when he’s ready. Yeah yeah, I know I know. :)
I chose not to get my cervical dilation checked at my appointment yesterday because I was worried it would just be more of a mind fuck for me than anything. That number doesn’t tell you how soon active labor will start or how fast you’ll progress once it does, so I decided to hold off. If I get to 41 weeks (*sigh*) then I’ll get checked & probably do a membrane stripping at the same time (along with every other induction trick I can try!). We’re definitely hoping it doesn’t get to that, but that’s the plan. As long as little man comes before 42 weeks, we will still be good to go with the home birth. I’m not having any problems with swelling, protein in my urine, high BP, or anything like that, and little man has plenty of fluid & is bobbing around head down (in LOA position). All systems are a go… as soon as he is ready.
C’mon baby, we are ready to meet you!
