And the pregnancy continues! Yes, yes, it is not technically my due date, and I don't have any right to officially complain until then. But! Whhhhiiiiiiiinnnnne. I would just like to get this show on the road. I am super duper excited to meet this guy, a little nervous about delivery, and just READY to do this.
I went to the midwife yesterday and I am at 1 cm and 50%, which was not super promising. I was hoping it would be something awesome and she would say, "Looks like you won't make it to your due date!" Instead, she said, "So we'll talk about inductions at your next appointment." That was not exactly what I wanted to hear.
I would really like to avoid an induction with this guy, so I am hoping my patience lasts. If I go a week over, though... ugh. I have been given assorted due dates. The first was June 28, which is today. I told Jeff this would be a great day for a baby, since 6.28.2011 makes a nice mathematical formula (take 6 out of 28 and you have the same thing as 20+1+1). He immediately called me a nerd. At least I own it. The second due date I was given was July 3, and the final due date is July 4. Since July 3 is a Sunday and July 4 is a holiday, I didn't make my next midwife appointment for until July 5. That is ONE FULL WEEK away. I would like to request everyone take a moment to send some fantastic energy this way in the hopes that I never have to go to that appointment.
Besides the insane boredom of waiting for labor to start, I really can't complain. My legs feel better, I have a bit more energy, I am comfortable and sleeping well. From what I understand, this is not how the final days of pregnancy fare for most ladies. So... I should quit my yapping and just be grateful. I get it.
But I want to meet this kid!!!
