41-5

14 Sep

Today marks 41 weeks, 5 days pregnant. This little guy just doesn’t want to come! Yesterday we had another appt with the midwives and my body seems ready for labor–he is low, there is dilation–everything looks good! But alas, no contractions. So if I’m not in labor by Thursday morning, we’re going to induce. Although the non-stress tests look great, we walk a fine line between a healthy birth and risking a difficult labor with an old placenta, less fluid, etc. as we go past 42 weeks. And so I hope to go into labor naturally over the next 36 hours so I can do this my way. Alternately, I will get some pitocin to get contractions started and meet my little boy by this weekend!!!
