    Sadly I wish I had something to update with, we spent the whole weekend trying our darnedest to sell a garage full of my mothers things she just couldn't move out to BC. With all the lifting, squatting, running and work I thought for sure I'd end up in labor... but nope... This little one has decided he's comfy and nothing short of the universe itself is going to get him to move.

    My Midwife stopped in on Saturday to check on me, since I had huge bloody show (totally gross and TMI) and I'm still having contractions (about 8mins apart for a few hours then nothing for hours followed by another wacky pattern) and they want to keep on top to make sure that nothing is actually happening. She stayed for about an hour and then left fairly certain nothing was going on We took Jayde to see Kung Fu Panda after the day was over and I have to say it was nice to get out and laugh and not think about labor, contractions, housework, or family for a little bit. Though my father has suggested strongly that my Mom leave tomorrow and get out of our hair... she doesn't seem overly ready to disembark my nursery! Its frustrating because I love and adore her, but I really really need her to go home and stop 'watching anxiously' for any twinge or facial spasm that might mean I'm in labor... its like being constantly under scrutiny like I'm doing something wrong and that's why I haven't had the baby. Between that and neighbors/friends constantly commenting on how I "have to have that baby soon" like I wasn't aware that its annoying as heck to still be pregnant... oy! I have to bite my tongue often to keep from saying down right mean things back to people I know only mean well.

    Apparently I'll be getting a call from the local ultrasound lab on Tuesday with an appointment to double check that fluid levels and everything is well with baby-kins, and depending on on-call's sleep (or lack there of) I'll either be started on the "soft" induction on wed or Thursday. They'll do another stretch and sweep, followed by a monitored verbena mix to see if that gets things moving... -if- that doesn't work, then I'll have no choice but to be admitted to the hospital and start a pit induction on Friday. I'm trying my darnedest to be positive and confident that my body will get on task with the soft techniques... but I have to admit the mere mention of the pit induction on Friday has me so terrified I had a hard time sleeping last night. I -know- that with constant monitoring, and a supportive team with my midwives will let me avoid any of my past issues, but this is just coming WAY too close to my second delivery, first with the pre-term issues and then going to 42 weeks... pit induction... I've been having nightmares about uterine tears and bleeds. *sigh* I know its not helpful to getting in the positive frame of mind that I need for my ideal birth experience. I just can't seem to shake the worry and fear, no matter how many grateful thoughts I try and stuff into my head. *headdesk*

    So I'll stop ranting now... and go back to hoping something big happens between now and then, I'm so anxious to meet this little guy and start our new lives as a bigger family... this is just tooo darn hard! My only joy today has been a tub of mint chocolate chip ice cream that I devoured with vigor despite my pregnancy induced lactose intolerance... lol... it was so good and surprisingly I didn't get any tummy cramps from the endeavor so I actually enjoyed it! WOOT

    gooness I can't believed you're still holding in baby! I hope it doesn't come to a pitocin induction.

    The ice cream sounds great! I have pregnancy induced lactose intolerance too, but sometimes I just can't help myself with the ice cream! And sometimes it doesn't bug my tummy too much, which is lovely. I am going to the store later, and I think I will pick up some mint chocolate chip ice cream, my fav!!!

    I am so so so sorry about the stress. I had my DD at 42 weeks 1 day, with the threat of induction hanging over my head too, so I can somewhat understand what you're going through, though I didn't end up with pit, as you did. I am going to keep praying for you, that you go into labor on your own before Friday! {{{HUGS}}}

    No luck today either, baby seems bound and determined to stay inside! I spoke with my midwives and will be doing the 'soft' induction wed morning at around 10am... so with any luck by wed night I'll have my little guy... and we're really hoping for some luck!


    Every once and awhile I wonder if I'm somehow broken, the frustration of my body not doing what its supposed to is the hardest to deal with... that and the constant "when are you having that baby already!" My MIL is driving me batty, I'm now refusing to take her calls lol!

    How frustrating! I really hope something happens for you before you have to face an induction. Try and relax as much as you can in the next few days(I know easier said than done).

    My kids were born at 42 weeks and it was considered normal, no pressure from doctor or hospital. I wish you didn't have to deal with anxiety and deadlines! My neighbor thought I had a tumor and not a baby, but the doctor said it was the first tumor with a heartbeat he'd come across.
