We were busy last week and forgot to take our 38 week belly photos. I made sure not to forget this week as we are getting so close and I want to remember the last few days before his arrival.
After downloading these pictures onto my computer I noticed some stretchmarks on the lower part of my belly where I am not able to see myself. I'm not upset by them but I am kinda stunned that I did not get any stretch marks until my 39th weeks. Seriously Landon you can come out now before I get some more this week or next.
Speaking of coming out. I am completely ready for this, that I am just bored not working, nothing to clean and nothing to do. I am getting really antsy. I think the most part is I am negative on protein now and my blood pressure is under control as long as I am not working. I am still 50% effaced and no dilation. Landon has not engaged whatsoever and we are approaching due date in 4 days. The original plan was induction on my due date due to the high blood pressure but now that I am just borderline under it Dr has agreed to let me go up to a week over due. Which would put me up to May 4th. I then asked whats the plan? He plans on rupturing my membranes and then start a pitocin drip. Ughhhhh two problems with that, first you have to be at least dilated to one so he can get in and rupture the membranes, and second I really really do not want pitocin. I feel i can handle natural childbirth but with pitocin I'm not sure how strong I will be. If its to unbearable I will take a narcotic to take the edge off but don't want the epidural so I can walk the hallways, change birthing positions, use the shower to relieve pain and most importantly know when I need to push.
So Landon if you could just come out in the next few days and kick start this naturally I will be very happy.
