The Never Ending Pregnancy...

So, this morning we showed up at the hospital, just like the doctors told us to. Just one problem. I'm not 42 full weeks until tomorrow, so I'm low priority & since there were too many women ahead of me in line, they told me that they wouldn't be able to induce until after the Sabbath (at least). The doctor recommended I stay somewhere with better food and a more comfortable bed (i.e. go home) and come back again tomorrow night. She believes that they will induce within 2 days...

Fortunately, I hadn't gotten my hopes up and it really IS more pleasant to be home for Shabbat, so here I am.

I made it to 41w6d. I may yet get to my 43rd week...

Okay, maybe I'm projecting here, but overdue babies always make me nervous. You know for sure when you conceived so you are legitimately due for an induction. They have to take you soon don't they? Is the midwife at least seeing you everyday? At this point, I'd assume they should be checking your placenta and what have you.

It just seems odd they are so relaxed about all this when you aren't a first time mom and you are definitely past dates.

Wow, good luck! Before inductions babies came out when they were ready, I am sure you will be fine. Get some rest while you can, if that is possible with 5 kids! I am expecting twins and will be back here for inspiration, I am overwhelmed with the thought of 4 kids, but you have 6 and seem very happy. Hang in there!

I was certain I had missed the big day!

I hope it is not too much longer!
