Please be warned that this is going to be an extremely whiney post, but I need to vent.
Had my most recent OB visit today (39 weeks 2 days) and still have no progress whatsoever. Dr. said by cervix is "starting to thin" but is still completely closed, and the baby's head is still high up.I have not lost 1 bit of MP yet, no loose stools, and no increased discharge or anything else out of the ordinary.
I was just so discouraged to go to the Dr. today and hear the same thing again. It makes me feel like something is wrong with my body, that things aren't beginning to at least move in the right direction.
I have been having a backache and constant mild cramps for the past 2 weeks so needless to say I am uncomfortable. I started maternity leave on 7.25, so I have been home alone with nothing to do for over a week now. My EDD is Saturday so it looks like another long week home alone. My next OB visit is on Monday. They are going to do a NST and ultrasound to check the fluid levels around baby.
I'm a planner so I've had the nursery ready to go for awhile. Car seats are in, etc. so all I have left to do is wait. I've cleaned my house like a nut already too!
I know I'm technically still early, and have 5 more days till my actual due date but I'm just bummed. Everyone says "be patient and dont think about it" and "enjoy being bored now cause you will never be bored again". But its hard to be patient and not think about things when I'm super uncomfortable and ppl call me hourly for updates. I have watched 5 movies in the past 3 days, and have only 1 more new book to read.
Please let something happen sooner than later! I think DH is going to strangle me if I don't shake my sad attitude.
Ok vent over. Just needed to get that off my chest. Feel free to join my pity party if you need too!
