I went in for my BPP(Biophysical Profile) appt today and I am officially 37 wks, a personal best! I don't understand it and I guess neither does my doctor. The nurse practioner said that he was using me as an example the other day, name excluded, but mentioned how I had been on death's door and had a stillborn and now have this pregnancy thing down pat!
I still cannot shake the "shoe drop" feeling while I wait for this boy to be born. I know that may seem like a pessimistic view on this pregnancy, which I do not mean to be. I am happy to have a healthy pregnancy yet I am "over" the feeling of being pregnant which I have heard many other pregnant moms say. They told me I would not go past 39 wks for delivery yet, when we tried to schedule the induction for after the 39th week, it ends up he's out of town and I will have to schedule my induction for the night of May 15th. It's possible I could have him that night or early the next morning. I tend to go pretty quick. But seeing that would put me almost at 40 wks because I am originally due May 17th, I may , may I say, go before that.
It's almost like I am having a hard time being "healthy". Isn't that weird? I had false labor on Friday night and didn't end up calling anyone, not even the doctor. At around midnight I felt what I thought at first were feet pressing up in my diaphragm but it turns out were contractions every 10 minutes. This lasted for 3.5-4 hrs and then went away. What's up with that??!?!?!?! Granted I was thinking, Why Why must you wake up to do this in the middle of the night? I didn't want to disturb anyone at midnight or later, so I was going to wait until they got closer together to call anyone and as a result I am glad I didn't call right away.
Well, here I sit, waiting for my oldest to come home from school and dealing with my 17 month old who has a cold but otherwise is feeling ok. I sit, feeling like I am playing some cruel waiting game even though I know the longer he stays in the better off he is.
37 wks.... all I can say is WOW and Owwwwww .. get off my pubic bone! lol
