Waiting

I’ve been staying home this week. I’m taking it easy. We went to the doctor yesterday. I’m still 1 centimeter and 50% effaced, so no progress, but she did say if nothing has happened by next week, she’ll induce next Friday. YEA! I have an end date in site. That did a lot to increase the happy mood.

I was pretty hopeful last night as the exam brought on some pretty strong stuff, not contractions, just pressure. She tried to scrape the membranes to get things started but he is still too far up. This waiting is driving me nuts. I know Kevin is getting anxious as well. At this point we just want to get the show on the road. I don’t think we are very patient people. My due date is Saturday. I really did not want to go beyond my due date. All my friends were early. It just isn’t fair.

Staying home has been good for my mood and my ankles. I don’t seem to swell up as much as I do when I’m at work. I think it is because I get up and walk around more. It has been nice to stay home and work on some projects that I never seem to have time for because I am too tired. Everyone says there will be no time after the baby comes. At least this endless waiting will be over.
