Is anybody else just getting a little depressed waiting for their baby to come?
I am due on Tuesday. However, DD was 3 weeks early (I was on bedrest from 32 weeks) and this baby appeared to want to come around 33 weeks as well. I did everything to keep baby cooking til 37 weeks. I've been dilated AND 80% effaced for over a month now. Midwife and drs have said many times "you'll go by this weekend".......well, I haven't.
So I 'FEEL' like I am about 3-4 weeks overdue, even though I am not. You just get to a mental point, especially being dilated and effaced where you think its time. And just wait and wait and wait. I know it's best for baby, I really do.
But I am so tired of being uncomfortable, I am so tired of dropping everything I touch, and of being such and impatient and often grumpy person. I should be ecstatic about becoming a mother again any day now!
Hubby wants them to strip my membranes this Friday to see if labor will happen over the weekend. I am just so nervous to intervene, although from what I've read that one has the lowest risks of all. I had it done a week and a half ago with no results at all and decided I wouldn't do it again (I was 2-3cm dilated then, am 3-4cm now). Hubby will respect my decision.
I suppose they'd start talking about doing it or induction next week anyway when I hit my due date, I don't know.
I'm just rambling now......sorry, had a rough night of not sleeping and heartburn and I am just sick of it.
