Now I am not even post date, but am in the camp of moms with prodromal labor, lost mucus plug/bloody show, and no baby.
My biggest anxiety this pregnancy has been leaving my 2yo DD for a night or two to go to the hospital, as she has never been alone overnight. She has been a CONSISTANT 2-4x night waker and only wants me. I was completely freaked out about how she would react waking and no mama.
Well the last 3-4 nights she has slept straight through until between 5am-7am!!! Outta nowhere! I suddenly am FAR less worried about leaving her for the night.
Makes me wonder if there is a a bigger picture that baby gets about the best time to come, that I overlook. Like a few days of all night sleeping can make her birth wayyyyy less emotionally trying for her soon to be big sister and less worrisome for me.
Maybe that is dorky. Maybe I am trying to find some kind of Zen. But it helps my patience to think there may be some bigger reasons for the baby to come when it deems time.
