I have given up on the hope that my body is going to go into labor on it's own. I have done all the things everyone says to try. Not the crazy stuff like drinking castor oil but the natural stuff like walking, climbing stairs, etc. and nothing is happening.
I thought my body was trying to go on it's own because I was having contractions all the time and my tummy was not happy. Nothing stayed in too long but it turns out that there was a tummy bug going around and I probably had that since now I'm fine.
We went to the dr. on Friday and after all those contractions I had all week, nothing had changed. NOTHING! I am exactly the same as the week before. Are you kidding me? Fine, I give up.
The dr. said we had 2 options: 1) wait and see if anything happens or 2) induce. Gee, with option 1 I might just be pregnant FOREVER so we chose option 2. We have a Monday induction date. 2 more days.
So I am trying to enjoy my last few days of quiet with a wiggly belly. I am trying to appreciate and treasure the last few days of feeling his movements from the inside because soon he won't be there anymore.
I am just praying that they don't bump me on Monday. PLEASE DON'T BUMP ME!
I guess if they do, it is what it is and it will be fine. Everything works out for a reason and if I am meant to be pregnant forever, than it is what it is! Ha ha!
I spent the morning making meals and freezing them and washing our sheets. I even tempted fate and took a nap on our mattress without the mattress pad on. "Gee, I hope my water doesn't break while I am sleeping on our unprotected mattress." Ya, no luck. O-well.
So, here's to Monday, an easy delivery and a healthy baby. I can't wait to meet you Trevor.
