I'm only 38 weeks today, but am really struggling with patience right now. I truly want her to come when she's ready....but I want her to be ready within the next week, please and thank you!
I can't even complain too much- I am not suffering too badly,
although of course I am tired of it by now. Heck, I even RAN several times at a dog competition this past weekend (and figured it wuld put me into labor-nope!)
I think part of my problem is that on all of the other boards I am on, EVERY SINGLE woman, even those who are due WEEKS after me, are having contractions, dilating, losing plugs, and going early. And for me, nada. Well, my MW's don't do internals, so I could be dilated some and not know it. I am trying to tell myself that my body just handles pregnancy so well.....(no criticism to those who are having signs, I'm just trying to boost myself up, ya know!) And with DS I really had nothing until the moment my water broke, so it's not like I should be expecting anything. I think I just thought I'd be more aware of things this time around.
And my more real concern is my DH's paternity leave and how going after my EDD (12/24) or even worse getting into 2009, will mess everything up- they are not being very nice about things right now.
I am OK not going this week, but after this weekend I think I will be VERY grumpy about it. Come on, full moon!
