Well, here I am, 11 days past my due date. My last baby came at 39 weeks 3 days, so this is strange for me. I am, however, grateful that my ob is proving to be so patient and non-interventionist. He said today that there's "no reason to rush things along," since my bp and urine tests have been normal, and baby had a non-stress test today with normal results. When I asked him at what point he would consider it necessary to induce, he said "there's no set date" and that as long as baby and I keep doing well, we could go to 43 weeks. He also said that he expects this baby to be about the same size as my last two (one was a little over 9 lbs, the other 10 and a half), but that even if the baby was suspected to be 12 pounds (gosh, I hope not! lol), he wouldn't be worried, because he's confident I can give birth to a baby that large. (I am confident about that too, btw, but I'd rather have another 9 pounder.) So my next appointment is set for Monday, and I'm really hoping baby comes before then. Here I was expecting a Halloween baby, and now I'm hoping baby even shows up before Thanksgiving!!
