Feeling Discouraged

I know I should be enjoying these last days without a baby, but ugh...I am so ready for him to be here already. I had the dr sweep my membranes on Monday at noon and other than loosing my mucus plug all day yesterday there has been nothing going on. I keep walking, I guess I could DTD again since it has been a couple days, but that hasn't been working. I have been drinking 3 cups of raspberry leaf tea to help strengthen my uterus or whatever(recommended by friend) and at this point I keep wondering if I will ever go into labor.

I also scheduled an induction for this sat, 1 day after my due date, because I need this baby to be here before the 6th which is when DH starts school. He says he will take time off, but I know once school starts his mind will be preoccupied and he will get stressed easier.

I know I need to just be patient and relax and this baby will come when he is ready, but I am ready now and I really don't want to be induced, I want labor to start on its own.

I know I might regret this thread once baby is here, but I so feel up to the challenge right now and can't wait to learn about my baby.

I'm right there with you. I'm at whits end waiting and I know I need to be patient but this just sucks. I've felt worse this week than I have the rest of the pregnancy. My temper is so short with DS because I don't feel well. I just need to be me again and these hormones and emotions are preventing that. DS was a week early so I was ready last week and now that we pasted that date I feel like I'm past due even thou I'm not.

I'm right there with you! 40 weeks and 3 days today - my first was 14 days late and induced, my second was 6 days late but came on her own.

I was okay with hanging out with those two, but with this one I am DONE! DONE! - tried everything under the sun so far nothing Sad
I think its worse this time though because part of my in-laws are visiting and it seems like I have screwed up their plans but not having this baby.

I see my doctor on Friday and will request to get things going one way or another. My DH starts a new job on Monday and is totally stressed about being there for me during delivery but not pissing his new boss off - so this weekend would be ideal!

THIS is me too!! My in-laws keep reminding me that they are all packed and ready to come down as soon as I decide to go into labor. The amount of phone calls feels like my family's don't trust me to actually call when it does happen.

Next time the in-laws call DH wants to tell them that the baby was born yesterday morning and we just didn't feel like calling them. He won't do it but it made us laugh and feel a little better to think about it.

My in-laws left this morning - thankfully but with full instructions to text them (they are on the road) as soon as the baby comes.

Like we wouldn't let them know? Part of me hopes this baby comes at 3 in the morning or some other awful time like that, so that I can call them to let them know the happy news!

Dr's appointment for me tomorrow morning - going to beg to get this show on the road Smile
