We are now 1 day past the due date. Still no baby, still no labor signs. 1 day past due might not seem like a big deal, but when you've had as hard of a pregnancy that I have it is like an eternity of waiting.
Received blessing on Saturday from Will and my Dad. I know things will be okay. He told me that I would be able to go into labor soon on my own. So all weekend I was hoping the baby would come, and when he didn't, I was pretty down.
Threw my back out though, so it was probably a good thing I didn't have the baby.
Really don't want to have to be induced. It is all dependent on how Preston does on his non-stress test tomorrow morning, and if my fluid levels* have gone down anymore at Wed's doctor appointment. Just want to go into labor naturally on my own before then. Sigh.
*Fluid Levels - meaning amniotic fluid. Amniotic fluid is what the baby drinks and gets nutrients from (as well as from placenta), and that is what he "swims" in. Normal is from level 7 up to around 24. However, if you are at either extreme of the scale, it is not good. For example, if you are at a 24, you have very high fluid and would possibly need to be induced early. And for me, my last fluid level check was a 7, which is at the very lowest level. If it becomes a 6 or lower, they will have to induce.
