When I first put my Lilypie Ticker on my blog, I think it read "About 280 days to go." It now says "10 days to go." Why does it seem like these last 10 days are going to feel about as long as the last 270??? Patience is definitely not my strong point.
Hubby and I just got back from the weekly rendezvous with the OB. Still 1cm. Still 75% effaced. Head at -2 station. Baby is way too comfortable in there.
And, ironically, after weeks and weeks of anxiety about having a bad placenta and, thus, a baby that may be too small, the first thing the OB said to us was, "wow, the baby is growing great, now we just have to make sure she doesn't get too big." Oh, the irony.
The one bit of good news, and I warn you in advance about TMI, is that she said I've lost most of my mucus plug. Gross, I know, but a good sign. She also said that March 29th - one week past my due date - is the last day they'll let Baby stay in there before induction. And that they'd be willing to consider induction at any point after 40 weeks. But we're really hoping that won't be necessary.
Oh, the agony of waiting but, oh, the joy we know that awaits us!
