A couple of days later, and here I still am. Like I said, due the 15th...we could strectch that to the16th or 17th...but gee! I feel, still, like nothing is happening. Some days I am incredibly positive about it, others, I feel like I'm going to be put the in a position that I don't want...like induction, u/s...etc. I just want to get the baby out so that we don't have to fall into the western medicine pit fall that inevitably awaits. I've got at least a good week before there are any threats of anything, but still. I do know that some babies need more time...I also understand that I could just wake up in the midst of a night and I will be heading toward hard labor.
I, too, feel that it is difficult to read about the many other births. I feel for those mamas whos partners were here, briefly, and still missed the births of their own children. Hang in there, ladies...send your experience to your partners in your dreams...connect them to the experience, include them, although they are not near! I wish you all luck. I would have a tough time without my Matty, I am sure.
Let's stay positive together!!!
These babies, truly, cannot live inside us forever!
