We're still here. At 41+1. Saw midwife yesterday, she felt the baby, said everything looked great. We didn't do any sort of internal exam, given that I'm GBS positive. I've been contracting ALL WEEK. Tons of pressure, baby very very active. Just waiting. DP and I have been trying to keep busy and patient. We did manage to get our taxes done yesterday (yay!) so that is wonderful--one more thing off the list.
Sick of everyone asking when I'm going to get induced. ARGH. I keep saying, the EDD is just an ESTIMATE!!!!!!!!!!!! The baby will come when it is ready, people!
DP and DTD last night. I had a hard time sleeping--just didn't feel sleepy, not in any real pain or discomfort though. DP has a side job two towns away this weekend, hanging drywall, so the alarm went off at 5am this morning. Got his lunch packed and he was out the door around 6am. I took the dogs for a nice brisk 2 1/2 mile walk, (during which it felt like the baby was going to fall out on the road) then did animal chores. Now I'm drinking coffee and starting my typing work. Two of the kids are gone to a friend's house for an Easter Egg Dyeing sleepover (yes, they are 17 and almost 15 and they are having an Easter party with four other girls), I'm going to help 20 yo DD with her taxes this morning, and 12 yo DS is going to play with a friend when he gets up. Busy yet relaxed weekend!
So, Easter baby? April Fools baby? Or beyond????
Dammit, we want to meet this baby!!!!!!!!!!
Must. Stay. Patient.
