I was wondering about this, too. I'm 39 weeks today. DS came at 39 weeks 1 day, theoretically if this one is the same (as if they are
), labor would start tonight.
But I've done just about everything I can think of. I've got all the "stuff" I thought I still needed, diaper pail for our bedroom, clean floors, stocked pantry, etc. and there isn't anything else I can think of.
I mean how many times do I have to clean the bathroom before I can let go and "let" labor begin? It doesn't help that I have to keep saying "no I don't want to be induced, period" every week that I see my ob. I don't want to have to get into some giant argument with him at week 41 about letting me go another week.
So, "stuff and prep" wise I've got it all done, even though, sure I could add more, like, lets wait until the weekend, another paycheck would make finances have a better cushion than they have now, or I could come up with other things.
And yet I know I am holding back because, well, having a newborn to take care of, is reeeeeeeally hard and draining, and I have no idea how it'll go with ds, so that's scary. But I also keep thinking, babies don't care, they come when THEY are ready. Arrrgh!
Well, thanks for letting me get it out.
