When my doctor told me a month ago that Baby C would be early, I never thought we would get acquainted. Alas, here we are.
I am now convinced that Baby C will not come on his own and we will need to schedule an induction. I’ll be talking to my doctor about that at tomorrow morning’s appointment. Perhaps it’s best for me mentally that I don’t anticipate him coming on his own…the amount of false labor that I’ve endured this month has been difficult physically, but even more trying mentally. It’s so hard getting yourself ready to be checked into the hospital and soon meet your baby, only to have contractions stop or be told that it wasn’t your amniotic fluid that was leaking.
So, due date, please be kind. I hope that becoming officially over-due does not result in further aches, shooting pains, difficulty moving around and irregular contractions.
To all the moms-to-be out there who have also reached or passed your due date, hang in there! Hopefully we’ll meet our babies VERY soon
