OK, I know I'm not even at my due date, but I'm feeling like this baby is over due already and never coming out!!
I'll be 39W tomorrow, and by now most women have had a few episodes of 'real' contractions, or been loosing their plug, or have started dialating, SOMETHING!
Me? Nope - nothing - not dialated at all, no loosing my MP, and no real contractions other than when I was sick.
My Dr has said since early in the summer "you're boarderline low on a hormone, so you're at an increased risk for early labour, I don't think you'll make your due date, we'll need to give you extra monitoring", etc, etc, etc. And I've said this whole time that with all that fuss about me being "slightly" increased risk, that I'll be the one that goes overdue - and it's looking like I was right!
And she's getting a bit concerned, there's been problems with my blood sugars lately.....my morning fasting numbers have been between 3.8 - 4.7, so pretty low. Even with me lowering my insulin at night, my fasting numbers are still too low. And so they're concerned it means that my placenta isn't doing it's job any more, and so they're talking about inducing me early, maybe evben this week.
......And as much as I want Baby Girl here, I wanted her to decide when she's ready rather than having Dr's and inductions decide for her.
AND......to make it feel even more like this baby isn't ever going to get here, my SIL (who was due 4 days after me), went into labour at 38 weeks exactly and I had a niece (no name yet) born on Saturday night!!
So SUPER excited for my SOOOOO adorable little niece, it's making me feel like this baby is never going to come!
So really, I don't know what I want - I want Baby here, but I know the longer she stays in the better. I didn't want to have to be induced, I wanted baby to arrive on her own, and I wanted to experience the start of labour naturally, but it's looking more and more like it's better for baby to get induced early.
Lol I feel like I've grown 2 heads and could spend the whole day arguing with myself over this!! Anyone else feel like you're constantly arguing with yourself over this?!?
