Alright ladies, this isn’t funny anymore. My little girl is fully baked and is being pretty stubborn. My OB has officially put me on the countdown and will force me to do an induction by March 6 if this little one doesn’t come on her own. After today’s appointment we found that I’m now 4cm dialated, plug is gone, blood pressure is still good and I go back in one week for an ultrasound to make sure the amniotic fluid levels are okay.
I have to admit, I’m getting a little frustrated. Right now I have a nasty cold that’s making me feel pretty cruddy, the idea of sitting in a hospital getting pumped with pitocin and enduring labor on my back in bed is not what I want to do. I really wanted to have this baby as naturally as possible. That’s not too much to ask right? I had epidurals with both of my other kids and all I want is to experience child birth in completely natural way just ONE time.
So I’m going to be doing some major walking this week. I don’t care if I have to pace the house all day long, this little girl is going to come naturally.
It’s not helping that my family is bugging the crap out of me. For months I heard, “you won’t make it to your due date” and “she’ll come early” and “this one is just going to walk right out” and now I hear “it won’t be long”, “you’ll never make it to your next appointment”. Enough already!!!
I know they are excited to meet Emmaleigh, gosh, I AM TOO! But there’s nothing I can do to make her come, this part is out of my hands. I swear they are stressing me out more than I stress myself out over this. I just need everyone to calm the heck the down and let nature take it’s course.
Anyways, enough of my ranting. I guess what I need to do now is recheck my hospital bag and make sure I have everything packed. I already did this twice, but I can be pretty forgetful. Oh and hopefully this will be the last shot for my pregnancy photos.
And just for kicks, here is my comparison shot of Kaydee at 41 weeks.
