well it's happy due date day! and that's a day to celebrate, right? i mean c'mon, not everyone makes it this far & that's something to be happy about, amiright? ok, i'm reaching.
i actually kinda sorta saw this coming. at our early ultrasounds they dated this baby a few days later than what was based off my last missed period but since it was within the acceptable margin of error they just kept the due date from my LMP so we went with it. it's all just a big estimate anyway, right? stupid science.
we had our 40 week check up yesterday. they offered to strip my membranes with the disclaimer of "if baby's ready & your hormones are just right & blah blah blah... it might kickstart labor within 12 to 48 hours." well that was way too much disclaimer for me when it wasn't even my due date yet so we opted not to. i am only dilated to a 2 & have been like that for two weeks now, so for me? that means baby needs to keep hanging out. and i'm ok with that, seriously. yes we're in this weird inbetween stage of waiting but whatevs... he'll come out eventually, right?
we set up an appointment for a non-stress test on monday if he's not here yet & will think about induction at 41 weeks. we'll see.
in the meantime i guess it's just another day to kick it with p-ray as my one & only & maybe another weekend o' fun with my two main men. repeat after me: no one has ever been pregnant forever... he'll be here soon enough :)
