I manage a country homestead and the lives of my 4 babies ages 10,8,5 and 3. I LOVE TO RUN and NEED to keep healthy and fit for my SANITY!! Seriously....All problems are solved when I am running.

Making MY health a priority allows me to be the mother and wife that I need to be for them.

panick of one sort or another

Absolutely nothing happening with my body today. I'm tired as I did not sleep well last night but that is about it.
I had A LOT of pain yesterday but think the stretch and sweep just seriously bruised my cervix. I feel just fine today which is kind of frustrating. O.K it is very frustrating.
Even if my actual due date really is September 11th I am still overdue by at least 5 days. How annoying.

I'm not usually a worrier. In fact I can generally take things in stride. However now instead of panicking about BIRTH, I am panicking about an induction. I want this baby to come when her time is up. NOT because I'm fed up.

I see the doctor tomorrow. He would be the one to induce me on the 23rd. I'm thinking that if the baby and I are healthy I want to wait the FULL 42 weeks before considering taking her out.

I'll let y'all know.

Hmmm...blood clot, gassy/nauseous...I think your body is prepping itself! Baby will be here before you know it! :)

Hey...I met a woman whose gestational time was 43 weeks- both times. Midwives fudged the file so she wouldn't have to be induced. I think you just take longer. Try to hold off...do whatever you can to ahem.."help" the situation (you know the list of stuff) and try to be patient as best you can. Sucks, I totally know. Been there....
Love ya.

I was induced for Seamus because of some wierd thing 6 weeks early...but I can tell you there is nothing to fear about it. I was nervous as well, thinking that the contractions would be more painful if the body really wasn't ready, but that was not at all my experience-in fact, Seamus was much easier than Mahone...It will be wonderful, whatever the way the birth happens.....wonderful because you finally get to meet this little one..and wonderful because the waiting is over!!!!

Reality is always much easier to handle than all the 'what ifs' of possibilities. Regardless of how Audrey makes her way into the world you will be strong, you will be able to handle it, and you will get through it with the help of Adam, your midwife and your faith. You are not and will never be alone in this process. A sisterhood of women who love you are praying and thinking about you so draw strength from us too.
