I'm due ToDaY!

OK, so today is my due date. I've been having braxton hicks like crazy all day yesterday & today. Hopefully that means SOON! I had my 40 week check up this morning. I didn't get an exam though. I'm pretty sure if my midwife would have told me I'm still only 1 cm dilated I just may have began weeping right there in the office. Then on the other hand if she told me I was 3 or 4 & it still took me until next week to have the baby I would have been miserable. So I figured... what's the point? She's going to come when she is ready anyway. I haven't felt that great today... you know setting aside the fact that I have an 8 1/2 baby inside of me who is... as someone said at church on Sunday... "as low as she is going to go"... I think my iron is low & that's the problem. Just been really sluggish & blah feeling.

My next appointment is Wednesday (if she hasn't come by then). They will do an ultrasound to check my fluid & monitor the baby's heartbeat for 20 minutes to make sure she is still happy in there. If there seems to be any issues they will want to induce me. I'll just be sure I drink lots of water to make sure everything is OK. Of course she will still be happy in there... she will come when she is ready... I DO NOT want Patocin. That stuff is brutal. Wouldn't mix too well with the whole natural birth thing. So we wait...

We went tonight to get a few last minute things at Babies R Us, a birthday gift & Lowes for a ceiling fan & a few other things tonight. So hopefully all of that walking did some good. I'm about to take it easy tonight...  play some Rummy w/ the hubby. Tomorrow mom & Linda are coming over to help me get the house finished. So ducks are almost in a row. As I've been saying for 2 or 3 weeks now... "Come on baby, it's time to come out!"

  3. We all can't wait for Reece to come into this world! Take it easy and enjoy every minute of peace and quiet before she comes!! Remember...God knows when she coming and HE has perfect timing!! Love u!
