Come Out, Come Out Wherever You Are...

At my doctor's appointment a week and a half ago (8/29), I learned that I was already 3cm dilated and fully effaced. I felt elated at the thought that this baby may arrive earlier than expected. My doctor confirmed that the baby could come at any time and even predicted that I wouldn't make it to my appointment the following week. The doctor gave me her cell phone number and said, "see you in the birthing center." Ten days later....still NO BABY. I actually feel physically fantastic. No swelling, no cramping, no nothing. I've been walking, cleaning, and working on food storage like mad, but to no avail. Mentally, on the other hand, I feel like a wreck. I'm literally a time bomb thats just waiting to go off at any second. Every night, Aaron and I say to each other, "maybe tonight is the night," only to wake up to another uneventful morning. The anticipation is seriously killing me--every hour that passes creates more and more suspense! I have a doctor's appointment tomorrow, and depending on the outcome, my doctor will probably relent and put me out of my misery and induce me on Wednesday. The anticipation is torture! ....maybe tonight IS the night:)

I know exactly how you feel. I am keeping my fingers crossed for you! I hope you have him today and dont have to go in tomorrow to be induced:)

I am excited for your little guy to come! I will pray for you guys. It seems like most of the time whatever the doctor tells you is opposite of what will happen. Eight days before my due date (Christmas Day) I had made no progress and He told me I wouldn't deliver until after Christmas, which is what I wanted. So I was just la-la'ing around ready to enjoy the holidays, then two days later, bada boom bada bing-wasn't expecting it and there she was. Crazy. Good luck Sweetie!

Well today is Wednesday...any Max?? I hope that will come soon if you weren't induced today. But either way, I hope that everything went/is going/ will go AWESOME! (I'm sure you do, too!) You're a beautiful pregnant lady btw.
