Hey thanks for asking! Well at the moment I am ok. Bored out of my mind though. Now that can change at any moment with my hormones. They are up and down like a roller coaster and it drives my family crazy. The heat is killing me. We were in the 90's today. I do not like it hot when I am not pregnant but now I am miserable. Thank goodness I have not swollen up.
I am taking Evening Primrose Oil 3X a day to soften my cervix. I do not know if it is helping or not but I sure have a lot of discharge (sorry TMI I know).
The one thing that is drivng me crazy is my daughter who is 18 asked me constantly if I am in labor yet. I told her to stop it and I would tell her when it happen.
I go back to see my midwife on Monday. They will do an ultra sound and a NST and check me again. Then they will schedule to induce me at the end of next week. As much as I do not want to be induced I am happy to know that hopefully it will be all over with in a week. Though if I make it that far then I would like to wait till either the 16 which is my parents 42 anniversary or the 17 which is father's day. Hey I figured if I can go that long I can wait a few more days. But I do not think they induce on the weekends.
In the end I want her now. Well actually Sunday would be best because we have so much going on tomorrow.
Now Monday I may have a different attitude after going in and them telling me she will be a big baby with a big head. I heard that with my last one.
Aren't you glad you asked. I can have a lot to say. Oh and I am so bored sitting here just waiting it out. I even dared to post my belly pics last night.
Awwww I am right there with you with the emotional roller coaster. Sometimes I'm angry.. then I cry.. then I'm just plain tired. I tell my family that I dont feel irritable .. but I know that I am and dont mean to be.
I've thought about taking the EPO too. I used to take it while TTC.. but I dont have anymore and need to buy some. When you go back for your next appt, you'll have to let us know if you think it made any difference.
My 17yr old son keeps asking me if I'm in labor too and if I need him to drive me to the hospital as fast as he can! Uhhh thank you son ... but uh.. no.
My due date is on Fathers Day, but I think I will be induced either the 15th or 16th. DH wants the 16th .. I say the 15th is closer so I pick that one! I know that the baby is growing while she is still inside .. but she moves a lot less so it just gives me another worry. At least on the outside I would be able to see that she is okay.
I've been bored too since DH has put me on official rest for the next week. He has scheduled to take 3wks off to be home with me (which I was so surprised,,, I wasnt expecting him to take that much time.. I'm thrilled!) but he doesnt want to start his family leave any sooner than the 15th.
Sooo I will probably be on here A LOT for the next several days.
Right now I have 3 episodes of "So you think you can dance" recorded and I'm hoping that I can get in to it. I've never wathced it before, but I miss American Idol and need a show to look forward to again. haha
Well, I've pretty much written a novel.. so I'll stop rambling! I'm glad everything's going well.
Oh yeah ..
What ever happened with your DH's Grandmother? Is she still living with you??
