40 weeks and going!

I'm still pregnant. Yup. All those nurses and my doctor who said I wouldn't make it to my due date.. HA!!! And aren't I glad I had a million ultrasounds on my cervix to see if it was opening? Apparently, its decided, nope, not moving...
Yes, I'm a little cranky. I'm very hot, very uncomfortable, and anxious. Yesterday, my doctor mentioned induction. I asked about the risks and there is a 25 % chance I'd end up with a c-section. The hospital I am going to already does C's on 39% of their patients... HUGE!! Since Peanut is still thriving and seems happy, I opted to wait. I am going back on Monday, and if I haven't progressed, they can pull her out through my belly button for all I care! She is so grounded for not coming out yet. I mean, come on kid!! Haven't I waited long enough?

Oh I can so sympathize with you! If you are not in too much physical pain then definitely wait. She will come when she is ready. If Hayley hadn't been compressing my rib with every BH contraction I would have waited too- it makes for a much healthier baby! We can't wait to hear your birth story Joei! Congrats on making it to the end, just a few more steps until you cross that finish line!

Aw, poor Joei!

Let's see, I think in the past you promised to buy Peanut a car...but now Peanut is grounded!

Ouch! Good luck w/ that belly button thing. ;-)

Seriously, I hope all goes well for you and Peanut. I'm on pins and needles! Hopefully you will soon be holding her in your arms.
