I'm still pregnant!

Ugh, ok well at my appt last week I was 4 cms and like 25%. The dr. wanted to see if I would go into labor on my own this week. On Friday I was having contractions every 10 min or so. I called dr.and they had me come in and do a non stress test on the baby. Baby was fine, and they sent me home and told me to go to the hospital if my contractions got to 5 min apart. Well they never did and finally fizzled out late Friday night. I was so bummed. I see the dr. tomorrow, and since I will be overdue she said we will induce if I want to. Can we say, YES! I'm soooooo done at this point! I never imagined I'd still be pregnant. I had both my other boys at 38 weeks. This one will be 41!. I am extremely anxious to see what day the dr. will schedule me for the induction next week. I'm really not wanting the 29th, but at this point if that's when the dr. is available I'll do it! I'm afraid this baby might be really big. My last one was 8 1/2 pounds and he was born at 38 weeks.

thanks for the update! it's so hard to still be pregnant at this point!! especially when you've been having pre-labor contractions for so many weeks now. definitely let us know what you and doctor decide tomorrow as far as an induction date! it'll be over soon one way or another! Smile

and don't worry too much about baby's size...he might be bigger, but he might also be smaller and that's why he's content to stay in there longer. i have a friend who gave birth at 38 weeks to almost 9 lb baby and then her next boy was at 41 weeks and only 7.5 lbs.

I hope you go into labor on your own before the 29th. That's also the only date I would really like to avoid. Smile And my C is scheduled for 40 weeks and 4 days and I am seriously over being pg now! I so feel your pain! Here's to hoping we both make the dates we want!

Thanks girls! I keep telling myself to think positively, that I won't be pregnant forever, but it feels like it sometimes! Ha!

I knew a guy whose birthday was 2/29--he said he was going to use it to his advantage when he got really old, try to say that he was only a quarter of the age he really was since that date doesn't come around every year. It just must be weird not getting to celebrate your birthday on the actual date of your birth every year.
