Well, I'm 3 days overdue today. I went 3 days over with Rosslyn but it was technically like 2 1/2 because I had her at 9am on the 3rd day. But here it is almost 1pm on my 3rd overdue day and still nothing. The doctor stripped my membranes at my appointment yesterday and it hurt like a bitch. For reals. It was almost as if I could feel him poking the baby's head or something. Definitely not a pleasant experience. I don't know what I'm gonna do. Jordan has tonight and tomorrow and Monday until midnight off so I'm praying she decides to come before then. I honestly don't want to be induced but I don't know what I'll do if she doesn't decide to come on her own.
Everything is ready. Her car seat is here, just waiting to go in the car, the hospital bag is packed and waiting in the car. We come up with a plan for who will watch Rosslyn every day in case something happens...but still, nothing yet.
I thought I was going into labor on Monday night because my contractions were about 6-8 minutes apart and because of what happened with Rosslyn, I didn't want to wait too long. But we stayed at the hospital for a couple hours and nothing progressed and we were sent home.
Since the doctor has stripped my membranes, I've had some contractions but nothing consistent and not really back labor like I had with Rosslyn. She just moves around and it feels like really bad period cramps. But those are sporadic at best. I am just about at the end of my rope with her and I'm about ready to go jump on a trampoline or something! LOL Ok, that was a joke. I am trying to keep the house clean and bend over for sweeping and mopping in hopes that it will do something but we'll just have to see. So please, send me all the labor vibes you can! I need them!!
