Well, last week I had an appointment to see if the baby would be in a good position to induce labor since I've been worried that she'll be huge (remember, Jeremy was nearly 9 lbs. and each consecutive kid is supposed to be bigger). Well, I was only dilated to a 1, 60% effaced, and her head was at a -2. Not really prime for having a baby. So the doctor scheduled me for another appointment today to check. I'm the same. Actually, one thing did change- the baby is now at a -3. She went the dang wrong direction!!
Before going in I was resigned to the idea of her not coming until this weekend. I just knew that I wasn't going to be in a good position to be induced today. I was completely fine with it until I got to the car. I didn't say anything to Nathan or the kids, but by the time we got home (Nathan left for work from the doctor's office, so it was just me and the kids) I was really upset. I don't get it. For a few days now I've known in my gut I wouldn't be induced today. I've had a feeling that it will be this coming weekend for quite a few days now. So why am I so upset about it? I don't know. I ended up calling my mom and crying on the phone to her. I feel so stupid, but I guess I just really want Emma to come now and not be huge.
My mom was great and cheered me up a bit. She gave me a little money to buy Emma some clothes since most of what we have are infant winter clothes from Megan's infant days and some money for dinner tonight, since I'm really not in the mood for cooking. (Have I ever been in the mood for cooking? Hmm.)
There are two girls in my ward who are pregnant and are due right around the same time as me. One of them was dilated at a 3 a few weeks ago. I think she'll go before me. As for the other girl, I don't know what she's at, but I'm sure it's more than my pitiful 1.
I just remembered that I labeled this post as Baby Countdown, so I guess I better put the current countdown info.
