Apparently I'm sealed up tighter than a vault. ~Blah~ That is not what I wanted or expected to hear. Dr. R didn't seem too surprised given how hard it was to induce me with Lily. After talking to my mom, she had to be induced with both Lee and I because she never made progress on her own so I guess it runs in the family. The good news is Miss Thing will be well baked before her arrival! That really is the most important thing here. I did not want her to come early as it is so much healthier for babies to make it to 39-40 weeks. I'm definitely not someone who's ~trying~ to get the baby out early. That would not be what is best for her and just plan selfish of me.
I have another appt next Wednesday to see how things are progressing (or not!). Dr. R doesn't seem concerned about any of this so we're just going to follow his lead. He does not want me to go too long just because Miss Thing is a big girl and I'm so hard to induce. Perfect scenerio would be that I would go into labor on my own next week. Reality is leading more towards having to induce because of size and my vault-like cervix. Plus Dr. R wants to get Miss Thing out by or around 40 weeks to avoid any possible complications that increase when the baby stays in mom longer than 40 weeks. We know all is well with Miss Thing so he doesn't want anything to go wrong (which we appreciate) especially given our history. I didn't realize that the chance of stillbirth increases significantly after the baby is past 41-42 weeks.
So it's back to waiting but not for much longer! The good news is I'm getting so much done around the house that we'll have hardly any projects left after Miss Thing gets here! Well, I won't but Lance will as he's been working his tush off with work. He figures he'll have time after Miss Thing is here to do house things while she and I are sleeping or feeding or whatever!
It's a Happy Friday here! It looks like an indoor day as it's very overcast/going to rain and windy. The to-do list includes calling the crib company to harass them again, moving some of Miss Thing's clothes downstairs so I can fit the rest of the smaller sizes in her closet, horse stuff paperwork... we'll see from there! Hope everyone has a great weekend!
