Impatient Mama

Today is officially my due date, according to medical science. All my counting has been according to my menstrual calendar counting, making my due date the third and I never adjusted it after all the ultrasounds. I was sad when I went to bed last night and had not gone into labour. I had wanted to have this baby in August, because Superboy's birthday is on the third of September and he didn't really want to share.

Now he tells me that he wants baby Zed to be born on his birthday, but I think that the specialness of that would wear off pretty quickly!

I so want to go into labour on my own this week. I have had five inductions in five pregnancies, and I just want my body to do it on it's own this time. Please!

I fully expect, when I see the OB tomorrow, that she will book an induction for some time between this Friday and next Monday. So I really don't have much time to wait until I meet my sweet new babe. Cross your fingers for me that my labour will start on its own, I have been having some little chats with God about it...

I do have to say that I am probably the least impatient person about this delivery that I am in contact with. Every time I cringe or wince or use the bathroom, my hubby asks if I am starting labour. He is making me insane. Everyone I know feels the need to tease me about it hourly, and I hadn't even reached my due date. The doctors have been bugging me since before 36 weeks about my body not wanting to let go of baby. 36 weeks??? I wouldn't have wanted to go that early. But anytime now would be good.
Labouring on Labour Day sounds nice to me! Well there are still 7 hours left in the day, lots of time.

I have been working on Zed's baby book, I will post some of the layouts over at Immortality Art.

  2. I remember people phoning me daily from about 37 weeks on with Isaac. that was NOT. FUN.

    I'm praying also, that you'll go on your own. Can't wait to get the call:)

  4. I hope your wish comes true and he decides to show up this evening! The waiting is awful. Hopefully you won't have to be induced.

  9. I can't believe it is your DUE DATE!!! Where has the time gone (she says as the one who is not pregnant and probably feeling like it has been an eternity)!!

    Hoping Zed kicks things in gear very soon!

  10. waiting is the worse. I'll pray you go into labor all on your own. But look at inducing as a negative- just that the baby will be here healthy and, of course, crying.

    Good luck this week

  13. How are you? Today was the appointment right? I hope you have already gone into labor or do soon! (: Can't wait for an update!

  14. I hope you go into labour on your own - I was induced with my first, and went naturally with my second, and it was so much faster and easier. But either way, I hope that you have your beautiful healthy baby in your arms soon. I'm thinking about you!
