The letdown of a due date gone by...

Well April 8th has come and gone, and Guppy is still firmly ensconced within my body...It's hard to not be disappointed.  I knew going in that my "due date" was just an estimate, and has a 2 week buffer on each side...so I could technically not have her till late April.  Oy.  It feels like...



The nursery is done, clothes are washed and hung or folded, we are ready for her to join us...I have done almost everything I can do to encourage labor...walking, bouncing, vacuuming, pedicure, walking, acupressure points, pumping, walking, warm bath, walking some more, Doritos...


...no I'm not trying Castor Oil, that stuff flat scares me!  I am almost desperate enough right now to ask my doctors for an induction date.  But that feels like cheating my daughter out of choosing her own birthday.

Regarding my Doctor...I finally got Mr Fish to tell me that I was dilated to a 2 last week, so if I have made progress this week we will let it ride...

...There was no progress, but at my doctors advice we are going to let it ride.  I have an appointment on Friday for a Non Stress Test (NST) and an ultrasound to make sure that everything is still functioning as it should, and my fluid levels are where they should be.  We may not have a baby until next week!!!  Until then I will continue to walk and walk and walk some more!  And watch some Royals Baseball!
