Entering Negative Numbers

Well, so much for not wanting that! Tuesday and Wednesday were looking so promising for labor to come through by the end of the week. And now, here we are on a Monday with contractions having slowed significantly, no cervical change, and the Doctor wanting to induce on Wednesday. Yup, induction. What we did not want to happen at all! I am just trying to feel better, I couldn't have changed this situation. I want to fight it, but I am so tired from just this week, I don't really feel like fighting.

1 Day To Go...

And praying I do not go into negative numbers! Though at this point who knows when he will decide to make his entrance into the world? I am so done and so ready. I did not sleep much last night because of waking up at least once an hour because of contractions. Once it hit 4 am, I was not able to go back to sleep. If it isn't heartburn or baby moving, then it is contractions keeping you awake. Ugh! And they are only coming at 20 minutes apart! Hopefully today they come faster! Yesterday they were about 20-30 minutes apart and I don't know how many more nights like that I can endure!

39 Weeks = 7 days left!!!

Now that the 9th is here and not much progression has been taking place, I am assuming he may come closer to the 16th if not later. :(

But we are still within the 40 weeks as of right now. Only 7 days left! How exciting, and craziness! Can I say super nesting phase? If only it lasted a little longer!

Progression Depression

Well got back from the doctor's office today and the word on dilation and effacement is...

10 Days till the Due Date!

Today we have 10 days to go till the due date given by my doctor. We were hoping that Nikolai would come by the 9th rather than the 16th, but at this point I do not think that it is going to happen. Although, Braxton Hicks can become painfully uncomfortable? I was not aware of that. Hmm, and tomorrow I go in to the doctor to check for dilation, effacement and station. We will see tomorrow the progress that is being made. Granted, I do and do not want to know. I want to be excited that there is progress, but if there is not, then I don't want to know.

December 1st... 15 days to go...

And a daily countdown begins! (at least in my head it does...)

Doctor's appointment yesterday went well. The heart beat is good and he was still head down! Yay! Plus the Doctor thinks that he will not return to a breeched position. I sure hope that he is right! I go in again next week to determine if there has been any dilation, effacement, and the station of the Nikolai. Hopefully he is moving down! 

And I wound up accepting a job for today.  I am wondering if I should have accepted it. (I didn't realize my days were not blocked off yet, I forgot to do so)...I guess as long as I don't have to walk the kids to the cafeteria I should be ok, and Brandon wont be mad at me for working (last time I felt awful afterward). Starting at 10:30, who knows what will be needed...
