Not here yet!

I went to the doctor today and there won't be a baby coming today! :( I'm not dilated at all! So, I'm going back next week for an ultrasound to check the size of the baby. She thinks the baby is 6.5-7 lbs now.....she says this will not be a small baby. (Mike did say he was sorry.) :) After the ultrasound we will talk about a possible induction the following week when I'm 39 weeks. I told her I was ready to go today if she said go! But, that's ok. The baby will come when the baby is ready!

Sorry the baby is not arriving today. I think it gets to a point where you just want the waiting game to end, you know? I'm almost there, and I'm a couple of weeks behind you. :)

Hey--if you like tea, try some red raspberry leaf tea. You can get it at GNC or health food stores. I absolutely swear by it--Bryan & Brady came 5 days early. I drank it 3 times a day. And it tastes pretty good. :)

Also - - - you really DON'T want to be induced. Take that from one who has done it three times without induction and once with.

Why not, Keetha? The doctor did say that if I'm not dilated at all and I'm induced that the chances of having a c-section are increased a little. (from 17%-22% with her patients)

HANG IN THERE! The baby will come when it wants to come. I hear lots of walking is a good thing. You can also always go with the "FRIENDS" idea if you know what I mean...(am I allowed to write that)?

Here's why:

For me - - - - normal delivery, zero pain.

Induced delivery - - - YIKES!!!!!

Praying for you here. I wouldn't rush it. I miss being pregnant so badly. Time flies anyway. I'm glad you are well. Hugs!
