It's bad when the doctor says...

are you ever going to have that baby?

As like the past 4 weeks, I am still 1 cm with a 50% effaced cervix. This means my cervix is still not ideal for induction. At this point if they induced there would be a 50% chance I would end up with a c-section. Thursday is my next appointment. We will probably go ahead with the induction then. I have to research the drugs he said he would like to use. I need to really think this over.

After the appointment DH and I went to see Superman Returns. It was pretty good. Then, he took me on a rough ride in the Land Rover. I definately think he shook something inside of me loose. Please pray that I can go into labor naturally.

April I'm praying for you - that Meadow gets fed up being in there and wants out!!

I'm sure you've heard of everything to try - are you trying anything to get the ball rolling (walking, sex, eggplant parmasian)?

I can say I know the feeling. My doctor was on vacation during my 41st week, but before he left he said "Next time I see you, I hope you won't be pregnant'" and when I saw him the following week he said, " You are still pregnant!" It was very upsetting to be so overdue, miserable, and just wanting that baby to be on the outside. Meadow will come when she is ready, it will all be good.
