Beyond 40 weeks - Page 5
I second babytoes. I stopped working on Wednesday and took a day for myself Thursday. By Saturday I gave up and told the baby to come whenever she was ready and ignored everyone. 2 days later (41+4) she was here.
Oh and the pushy doctor who wanted to induce was the doctor to discharge me from the hospital ...I really think he could have been a little more humble but it was interesting to see his face when he said "I guess we can take you off the induction schedule ..."
Haha! Nice moment.
Bena, hopefully having a little pressure off will let your body do what it needs to. Then your MIL can come back and be a great MIL again.
And maybe I'll go into labor once I finally have our taxes done! Heehee...
Happy Due Date. Funny. You (and it being your EDD) was the very second thing I thought of when I woke up this morning. The first thing was wondering if hikingfortruth had had her baby.
She did! A pic is on the labor thread!
Dh and I had eggplant Parmesan for lunch. I went to the chiro in the afternoon. I've walking a lot and bouncing on a birth ball in between. I heard bananas can make your contractions "better" (it's the potassium) so I've been eating those like a monkey in hopes of making these pathetic contractions I've been having for three weeks turn into the real thing. Aaaaaaaannnnd...nothing.
Hah! I love how much this DDC has become integrated into my life. I talk about conversations on here to my husband like I know you all in person. I love having such a community.
Contractions again this afternoon, this time 9-10 minutes apart, feeling stronger. Heard from my mom today that she'll make it here tonight, so maybe that triggered something. Here's hoping!
bananachild, finger's crossed the eggplant parmesan works for you! :)
