Hey everyone - just wanted to say, I'm still here.
Feeling a lot less emotionally vulnerable to outside influences of negative birth outcomes.
Also haven't had any recent days of intense prodromal labor, which was pretty hellish mentally.
I am 41wks 5days, or so. Still feel as if I'm supposed to be pregnant, and though am embracing and accepting contractions, I am not considering induction at this point. Maybe sex to encourage things along, but nothing too invasive yet (though sex brings on crazyintense contractions - even without orgasm.)
DS was medically (arom,pit) induced at 41wks3days, and was still coated with quite a bit of vernix (even at 10lbs.) My big babies just need to cook longer, I guess.
Baby will pick his own birthday, and if he's not ready to be here - then so be it. I can be patient. (rinse&repeat, rinse&repeat)
My pelvic bone is done though. Standing and walking is so difficult. I went for a mild 'walk' through homedepot yesterday, and am wondering if I overdid it. Picking up toys/newspapers/toddler snacks is a complete joke. My house is a mess.
Someone ought to give my DP the memo that its time for him to put on his game face, and take over more of the housework. Oh, and not to invite friends over without talking to me first.
