Typing quickly while I have a moment.
I was so depressed being almost 43 weeks past due, I was truly sad that my body wasn't kicking in on it's own. I stopped going online after 42 weeks.
You can read some of what I was feeling at my live journal
I will post more about my birth story, but basically after doing the homeopathics, castor oil and such to no avail at 43 weeks post dates, I went in for an induction on the 25th. Prior to them giving me the pitocin, I was contracting on my own and my water broke with a LOT of thick meconium (sp). The babe did not tolerate the pit and kept having decels-it was very unnerving to say the least. I eventually had a c-section
: which was VERY scary to me, BUT I have a beautiful healthy boy
ETHAN AARON, 8lbs 14ou 20.10 inches long.
Thank you to everyone for your thoughts and prayers-I will post more when this little guy lets me...
