Finally have a moment!
I'm back to a good place after having a really rough day yesterday. I finally leveled with the OB that I was not comfortable scheduling an induction for Tuesday. I imagine that in her practice I'm an anomaly at being over 40 weeks. She is nervous. My bloodwork came back good (the only concern is my uric acid level which is 6...still in the norm range but towards the top although it has been at 6 for at least 2 weeks) and the NST was perfect. I told her that I would definitely schedule for 42 weeks no problem but until I had a sense of peace I just couldn't commit to Tuesday.
I had a great morning today. I woke up about 5am and decided to go watch the sunrise. It occured to me after I had bought the starbucks that I wanted and driven over to the lake that it was raining. Then it occured to me that the sun was going to rise whether *I* could see it or not. That everything on this planet works the way it should because God made it so. If flowers know when to bloom, the sun when to rise, then of course between He and my baby they could figure out when she should be born. Or direct me down the path to get assistance with that. So, I'm back in a wait and see peaceful place which feels so much better than any of the bumps I've experienced and/or created for myself in the past few weeks. I'm not necessarily saying this will last but I'll take it for today!
Oh, and more serendipity my local birth network had a message about an opening for prenatal massage this morning and since I was awake I was able to go. Bliss! So much comfort and relaxation! Plus she loosened my hips some and helped my achy neck! Bonus!
So, that's where I am today...
bluebirdmama and nosce- My BFF said that after having her kiddo she totally understood why some women show up at their 6 week follow up pregnant! She said she was so overwhelmed by the love she felt for her husband that it was difficult to concentrate or remember that they had to wait!
So it makes sense that all that love would flow into others who were part of the experience as well.
okimom- Were your littles correct? Was Sunday your day?
How did the party go?
