How are y'all doing? I'm 39 and 6 today and got my membranes swept again this morning, just to find out that my doctor is going to be off all weekend. Nooooo! Yes, I want to meet my baby, but I'm terrified of seeing another doctor, because I trust THIS ONE. *sigh* My husband is getting more and more depressed that the baby isn't here yet, but I'm just not ready to get induced again (although it went great last time). I want the little man to have some say over when he comes. I'm dilated to almost 3, but hardly effaced at all, so maybe I can hang out until Monday when my doc comes back. Tomorrow is my due date, so we'll see. I went into labor with my first at 39 and 5 and was in early labor when I went in for my induction with #2 at 40 and 1.
I'm stressing pretty bad. Ellie's bili levels went down, then up again, and at the last check they were down. Doctor offered to wait until Monday for next test so my poor baby has at least the weekend of not getting poked daily.
I'm also starting to see more and more signs of the postpartum psychosis my therapist was concerned about. Having my mother here is making it a lot worse so I'm anxiously awaiting the day she will decide she needs to go pester my brother and head home.
I'm also really missing being pregnant. It's really sinking in that I won't be pregnant again.
Hope all you still-preggo mommas are holding out okay!!
Aw... *hugs* We spend so much time looking forward to meeting our babies that sometimes we don't really appreciate how nice it is to have them inside and always with us. I hope that your mom can understand and move along. Having extra people around the house after a new baby is soooo very stressful. Have you talked to your therapist recently? Is there someone you can call this weekend if it gets too bad? I have a really hard time with PPD, so I absolutely understand. I'm nervous about having that come back once Wyatt arrives. Hopefully, not having in-laws living with us this time will help so I can have my own space.
