I'm up and it's technically Monday already, so I figured I'd get the new chat thread going!
This is my week. One way or another, I *will* be birthing this baby this week. I'm 41w2d right now. Kind of weird knowing that for sure baby will come this week.
I'm still totally hoping/praying/sending good thoughts that labor will spontaneously start on its own in the coming days, but if it doesn't, I don't know when I should actually try things to get it moving. I was originally going to go through the list of activities my midwife has all day Sunday, but I couldn't bring myself to do it. I had thought I'd aim for Sunday because I could try them, and then if they didn't take, I could wait a few more days, then try them again closer to deadline (42 weeks is the last my midwife can legally attend a homebirth with me). But it didn't feel right at all. So... I opted not to. But now, I don't know what to do. Do I try for Tuesday? Then if it doesn't work, I can always wait again until Friday? (Saturday is 42 weeks for me, so it has to be by then or I'll lose my midwife). Gah. I hate the pressure of time.
Tonight I've had some random contractions, but nothing timeable or regular or anything. *sigh* But hey... there's another one *tinyglimmerofhope*
Princessjules -- So sorry you're feeling so horrible on top of not being able to sleep!!
And... gah... now I can't remember anything else from the last thread to comment on it.
Trying to figure out if I should go sew. I have one newborn diaper very close to being finished (was going to finish it the other day, but it was my totally weepy/bawling day and one thread broke and I had a complete breakdown over it... so I had to just walk away for a while! ;) )... but I don't think I plugged in the baby monitor in dd4s room. The older three are spending the night at MILs. Would be a good night to have a baby, I say. (but, I'm pretty sure I've said that for the past three or four weeks...!)
