I definitely did not think I would be here, on this Monday, August 10th, without a new little babe in my arms. I thought FOR SURE I would have had her by now!!!!
I will admit……at this point, everything irritates me. I know I have to be patient and I am trying sooooooooo hard, but any woman who has been overdue will know exactly what I’m talking about. It can be torture. I have literally had every sign in the book that this baby is on the way, and each day that goes by, I get more and more disappointed that I’m still pregnant.
I do have to remember that God’s timing is perfect, though, and keep focusing on that, no matter how hard that is to do. I also have to remember my post from a few days ago, that, when I start to go into a little bit of a “woe is me,” or when I get into an irritated or disappointed state, I have to remember that it’s NOT HELPFUL. Boy……another thing that’s hard to do!
If I don’t go into labor on my own, and if at my appointment this Thursday, I still haven’t had the baby, they will do a Non-stress Test and Ultrasound to check and make sure everything is OK. If it is, they will let me go one more week after this. If I STILL don’t go into labor on my own by next Thursday, then I have to have a C-section, since I can’t be induced due to a VBAC.
I can’t imagine going 10 MORE DAYS……it makes me want to burst into tears just thinking about it.
My fervent prayer is that I go into labor on my own…….and soon. Thank you all for your support and prayers, as well, and if you were wondering how to pray, now you know!!!!!! 🙂
I’ll keep you posted………………………
