This baby is never coming- Vent

This is a total vent becuase I am tired, hormonal and irrational. Proceed with caution :)

Last Monday I had a check up and I was 2 cm dilated and the doctor said "I will be suprised if you make it another week. You are making great progress". So I went and got excited that he would be here soon. Wed I lost my mucus plug, so I got even more excited! Then it's just been waiting. Walking a lot, spicy foods, sex when we can muster up the energy, and last night I started to have contractions that were more than BH. Sooo, today I went back in for a check up AND... no progress!!!!! I know it was technically silly for me to get my hopes up to begin with, but to hear that there was 0 progress crushed me. I actually went to my car after the appt and cried. Granted my 2 year old was up all night last night so between that and the contractions I got very little sleep and obviously right now I have a lot of hormones going, but I just broke down and cried. I stopped after a few minutes and told myself it's OK to be upset but that I have to think long term and realize that if he isn't coming yet there is a reason, and he's just in there getting big and strong and will come when the time is right. It helped some.. but I have to admit I am still a little sad.

 OK Vent over... no more pity part, it could be worse and heres to hoping that everyone has healthy happy babies, and deliveries. Thanks!

  • I'm sorry you're exahusted, but you're right...he is just getting stronger and stronger the longer he is in there. There is a reason he still is an inside baby :)  

  • Your doctor should have never said that to you its totally setting you up for disappointment.  WIth I had my first son (my water broke on Monday morning 1am) my MW said I can't believe you made it all weekend, she had seen my Friday and thought I would go anytime but at least she didn't tell me that setting me up for insanity!

  •  I agree the doc should have kept that opinion to himself.  What a way to set you up for disappointment.  Sounds like it would be sooner than later.  The last few weeks are the absolute worst!   Time for a massage or pedicure to help you relax and take your mind off the baby biz.


  • Hang in there. I have been feeling 'done' as well, but this, for some reason, really put things into perspective for me.
