Nice to hear from mamas in the same boat :) I'm 40w5d and alternating between feeling peaceful and excited about baby, and so completely DONE and uncomfortable and weepy :) It's been quite a week. Plus my DD has been sick and cranky. Good times.
We're planning an HBAC, and my midwife can only deliver up to 42 weeks. I just saw our backup OB yesterday for NST & BPP, which baby passed with flying colors, yay. Found out that he can't induce a VBAC due to his insurance (grrrr). Because of where we live (very rural), he's the only guy who will even do VBAC at all. So if I make it to 42 weeks (July 1), it's another c-section.
I'm trying to be at peace and have patience and "let go". I've been having prodromal labor for WEEKS which is exhausting just because you constantly have your hopes up. And we had a false alarm on Saturday, some good contractions that petered out. This is exhausting. I totally get why women go for induction when their doctors offer. Not for me, that's for sure, but I get it.
Because I've never gone into labor, I'm having a hard time visualizing it happening. But trying to have faith that my body will do what it's supposed to do in the next week & a half.
