Well, as of today there is still nothing exciting to report in the baby department. Tomorrow I go in for what is supposed to be my "last" doctor appointment. My duedate is this Sunday, June 8th. Hopefully I will get some good news, but I kind of doubt it. I'm under the impression that my body has no idea what to do to go into labor and I'm going to be pregnant forever.
I realize that I still have 4 days until the DD, but for those of you who have gone through pregnancy you know that this date is just a day on the calendar and from weeks 38 - possibly 42 you are miserable and just wanting it to be overwith.
I subscribe to a pregnancy forum where all the women are due in June. Every day I get on there and read that someone else (who is due after me) has had their baby, or someone is experiencing contractions, or someone's water broke, etc, etc, etc. I have to admit it is a little discouraging as I wake up everyday hoping that today will be the day, but then I go to bed every night still pregnant. I don't even know what a contraction feels like, my water has not broke...I have no hope.
Best case scenario: I will go to my Dr appt tomorrow and she will tell me that I am fully effaced and dialating and it could be any day now. Or better yet she could tell me to go to the hospital because I'm so ready (I'm laughing as I type that because I just know that won't happen).
Worst case scenario: I have made no improvements, yet again (which would make 3 appts in a row) and she says "See you next week". Next week I have an appoinment scheduled for June 11th, 3 days after my duedate, which, when I scheduled it way back when, I laughed thinking there was no way I would even need to schedule that appointment because for sure the baby would be here by then. The latest I will possibly have the baby is on June 18th because my doctor promised me she would not let me go more than 10 days overdue.
I am just depressed though. I have tried so many things to try to get labor started - and to no avail. I'm really miserably uncomfortable, swollen, cranky and just ready to be done with this. I honestly don't know how some women go through this multiple times. Kudos to them - my highest respect for sure.
