Happy Due Day November 4th mommies! I just wanted to see how everyone who is on our past their due date is feeling!
I'm getting a little anxious. I've always been of the attitude that when he wants to come out, he'll come out. Lately I've turned into one of those obnoxious 'I want my baby NOW!' people :) It happened since MIL booked her flight to be here on Sunday. I don't dislike my MIL, but we aren't close and she is opinionated.
Here is my dream birth scenario (which is never gonna happen now). I have the baby. We spend a couple of days in the hospital, come home, have a night or two to ourselves to get settled and get some semblance of a routine going. MIL comes for a week, helps with the baby, house, etc, and leaves. DH goes back to work after a few more days and it is all me for 6 more weeks.
Here is what is going to happen (nightmare scenario): MIL comes on Sunday, I am a week late. DH and I continue to work while she sits around sans grandchild. Next Thursday, I have the baby. She gets upset because I don't want her in the room while I'm pushing after she spends the previous 12-24 hours while I'm laboring up in my grill. After the birth, DH is worried about her being at home while he's with me in the hospital recovering. We get home on Sunday, she is up in my grill during our first (very scary and fumble-y) nights as parents, and leaves on Tuesday. DH and I are frazzled and exhausted.
I feel horrible because I have also said I don't want to induce unless it's medically necessary, but I am honestly thinking about asking my doctor about it today to see what he says. If he says no induction until 41 or 42 weeks, fine. If he leaves it up to me, I don't know what I will say. My brain tells me I'm very uncomfortable inducing for conveniences' sake. Sigh.
Sorry this turned into a bit of a rant, but I really do want to know how everyone who is due/overdue is feeling!
