Hey I did not know the average was 40w 3 days for 2tm... does that mean I get to have my baby tonight :)
I totally know what you mean about facing induction. It's an unfortunate road to have to walk down and if you ever need to talk let me know. I've got 13 days left before the induction talks.
You're doing a great job Helina! Hang in there!
You are getting close. Hang in there! You have a really great attitude. :)
In the immortal words of Oprah (and oft-repeated by The Soup): My va-jay-jay's painin'! ;)
I'm not usually one to complain (much) but today the pain and pressure are kicking into high gear. I don't know if I overdid it yesterday w/the shopping and being on my feet, or if I just didn't get enough sleep, but today I'm walking around like I'm 80. I feel every step in my pelvis/cervix, and my belly is very achy. When I'm sitting, I'm fine, but as soon as I get up and walk around it hurts. I have to go slow and sometimes actually hold my belly--classic, huh? :D
Maybe something is happening--baby descending finally? I have been sitting on the birth ball a lot more. In our old house we used it as a computer desk chair, and had an open downstairs floorplan so it was always accessible. New house has multiple separate rooms downstairs with steps up and down between them, so I find myself rolling that silly ball from kitchen to LR to den to bathroom (I sit on it when I dry my hair, do my makeup, and bathe DD.)
OOH! Hurtin' va-jay-jay is a good sign! I'm sure I read about that in TWG or WTEWYE :wink:
Ohhh, I'm more excited about your appt than mine this week, I think. And that's really weird to be excited about the state of someone else's cervix. Especially when it's someone you've never met. :?
OK I need to spend more time on my birth ball. I've only been doing 10-15 min per night. Hmmm...
And 40+3 is the average for STM, huh? Very interesting that docs around here start talking induction before you even hit your EDD. I swear :roll: Anyway, I'm thinking you'll go before your EDD if not on it. Yipee!!!!
Hey Helina. Sounds like things are starting to happen for you. Did you get the grant out today? I hope so!
Sounds like you are in a good place, and how exciting it would be if you went before your EDD, its getting so close.
