Thoughts at 41 weeks.

Didn't think I'd be here at 41 weeks.

Had another NST this morning. Pondegore isn't stressed. I'm still 50% effaced.

This week's plan: acupuncture round three tomorrow morning, then a Tuesday appointment with the midwife to make a game plan. Perhaps some bells [finally] went off when, today, at 41 weeks, I'm not in labor yet, and perhaps the midwives might be realizing, this baby's only getting bigger in there.

There were no babies in the nursery this morning but we did see one swaddled bundle of joy hanging out at the nurse's station, and oh how I wanted my own bundle of joy upon seeing that one.

Good news: I can only be pregnant for one more week!

You mean that this little one inside isn't going to be in there when we come to visit in June? Hee hee You are right, only one more week maybe! 50% effaced is good. Your body is getting ready at least a little bit, right?

Yep, I'm with Marie, thinking of you a ton...

The upside to all of this is that we get to read daily blogs from you and I really do love that. :) I realize that's only an upside for us though.

Well tomorrow was the day I wanted to pick, but thought that would be too upsetting. So much for that huh?! Well now you only have at the most 7 more days until you meet your little one. Still not sure if he's going to be a Pisces or an Aries. (-:

I'm now going to guess March 19th. I've got a 1 in 7 chance now, right ;-)

Hope you're sleeping well!

I thought for sure you would have had him yesterday!!! That baby is loving life in the womb :-) Who knows, maybe Pondegore and Dane will have the same birthday after all?!?!

Missy said...

Maybe today- St. Paddy's Day baby!

Hope you are getting some zzz's during all of this waiting!

Hang in there my friend.

Oh, wow! I also think that we should be allow to "re-guess"...surely no one is still in the pool. I'm taking the 20th. I think Pondy likes warm, so he is waiting for the 1st day of Spring. I can't blame him...now, if it will just stop snowing :-(
Hang in there...
