So, yeah, I'm still here. Still feeling menstrual, but so deflated. (this is TMI, but DH and I bd'd last night and it was GREAT, and it got my hopes up so much.....*sigh*)


So now I'm worried: I've been induced both times before. What if my body doesn't know how to do it on its own? Dumb and irrational, I know, but since when are pregnancy worries ever rational?

The anxiety at night and bad dreams are beginning to really wear on me (last night wasn't anything specific, just an amorphous scary dream about losing babies). I have an appointment this morning. I'm going to ask her to strip my membranes, and talk about induction options. I've made it a week past my loss date and I'm proud of myself for that, but I just need this guy OUT.


*sigh*

DEFINATELY talk to your doc...I was induced with Cam and it SUCKED...then I was scheduled to be induced with Keegan, but I guess the Big Man Upstairs felt pity for me and I went into natural labor the night before...

You are such an amazing woman and I don't want your birth experience with Patrick to be hindered because of fear and anxiety...

What time is your appt today??

Good luck at your appt today Brittanie. Hopefully they will be open to induction.

So...when you DO go into labor who is going to notify us and keep us anxious ladies informed?

hope your appointment goes well hunny
i would certainly ask them to start looking into options. you have done so well coming this far but i feel as time goes on your fears will only get worse which will drain you of energy and make labour that much more difficult.
hopefully when they give you a sweep they will find you dilating
thinking of you hunny

My sister. She's very excited about it. lol. Okay, I'm off to drop Erin off at the sitter's (called her yesterday to make sure she'll be there this morning). I'll update as soon as I get back...probably around 11:30 mountain time.
