Y3W: Appt. Update

Well, I woke up at 5:30am with pretty bad contractions, about 10 mins apart. I knew I'd make it to my appt at 8:45am, so I showered, got ready, and made sure our bags were packed.

Then the contractions stopped.

Ugh... I was so disappointed. But at least I still had my appt to look forward too.... right? Maybe they'd still send me straight to L&D!

Ummm, yeah right.

Here's what went down...

- My BP was high (150/94... I'm usually 120/70) but "not high enough" to move up my induction. So it's staying at May 24th.

- I lost a pound (maybe b/c of the sinus infection?) so I'm back down to 22lbs of total weight gain so far.

- I'm at "almost 6" centimeters right now.


So, what does a girl do after an appt like that? Why, go to work of course. What else am I suppose to do, right?

Maybe I'm crazy for going to work {again, an hour from the hospital} but I've actually felt better since I got here. It's routine. It's normal. It keeps me busy, and I like that.

I'm a little disappointed... I guess I just thought my high BP would move my induction up to May 17th or that maybe my intuition was right and today really WAS the day.

But I guess not.

So the waiting game is on, and I'm okay with that... baby girl just isn't ready yet, I guess.

And she's worth waiting for :)

OH Jenni! I thought for sure your intution would be right and today was the day.. Just like a girl she is taking her sweet time :-)

Today is my bday so there is no better day than today for you to have your newest kidlet. :-) But -- it's still today -- you never know what could happen in the next hours. I've got my fingers crossed for you!!

There's still 10.5 hours left in this day!

It really could still be today. Dude, you're only going to be in labor for like an hour. Seriously. And I swear, if you make it to your induction date, I. Will. Die.

Get your feet up, girl! You really want to keep your bp down if you can! I hope you have a relaxing weekend and baby girl comes soon!

I keep checking in on you to see if you're at the hospital yet! But as you said- she's worth the wait!

Hi! I'm your newest follower! You designed some shower invites for me a few months back. I found your blog somehow (you know how that goes)and have been keeping up with your pregnancy progression! Man you're more than halfway done with labor. But it must be awful having weeks worth of contractions. Hang in there! I too will die if you make it to your induction date. Eek!

Thanks so much everyone! I actually think I will die if I make it to May 24th, lol.

But alas, I think I will.

Oh my goodness... "almost 6"?! Here's hoping you have a safe, quick, and healthy labor once you finally do start :)

As of right now, we share an induction date. Although I have my fingers crossed that both of our little ones come before that. Good luck dear!
