I can’t believe I only have four days left until my due date! I’ve been getting so anxious just thinking about it. I mean no matter what he’ll be here within the next two weeks. I already talked to my doctor and he said the most they’d let me go is 42 weeks but that they’d most likely do something before then.
So if I still haven’t had him on my Birthday (the 29th) which just also happens to be my 41st week they’ll probably induce me that Monday because I can’t imagine they’d want to induce on a Friday when it could go into their weekend lol. That Monday would be Feb 1st and I REALLY wanted to have him in Jan so I’m hoping it doesn’t have to come to an induction. But it is what it is.
Another thing I really don’t want is to be put on pitocin and I want to wait as long as possible to get an epidural. Now don’t get me wrong, I say this now but I know I can change my mind. It’s just that once you get on pitocin and the epidural you can’t get up and walk around and I just feel like labor will be easier if I can walk around or do other things to facilitate labor in a more natural way. I guess we’ll see because I’m not quite sure how high my pain tolerance is. And to be honest I don’t think it’s that great but I’m hoping since the outcome will be way better than the outcome of any other pain I’ve had it’ll be worth it…Did I just make sense?
Anyway later today B and I have a family care class at the hospital and it is absolutely required that he comes with me because I refuse to be the only Mom without the Dad there especially when the Dad is around!! It’s going to be 2 1/2 hours long which kinda stinks but I think it’ll help, especially B! He hasn’t been around as many kids as I have.
Sorry I haven’t been posting anything substantial lately…I’m just trying to get stuff done before Bean comes and it doesn’t seem like I’m doing enough and I’ve been so tired lately it’s ridiculous but I did get all the laundry done today. So I’m hoping that when I start having regular contractions I’ll be able to do a load of all the stuff that’s left that way it can be in the dryer for B. Is that too ambitious? I also plan on packing my overnight bag and reading a little. I think I’ll be doing a lot during the early stages of labor…I guess we’ll see lol…
