I'm trying so very hard to be patient. I was checked on Monday at my doctors appointment and was 4.5cm dilated at 10am and 6 at 4pm. My doctor sent me straight to triage and said, "you're having a baby tonight!"
I was so excited. Not scared. And not realizing I was contracting at all. I told my sister to buy her flight and i spent a few hours at the hospital. At around 9pm the nurses/on call doctor asked if I wanted to go home. I wasn't contracting and I hadn't progressed any. They checked 1/2 dozen times.
I did want to go home. Since I tested + for strep b they wanted me back first thing in the morning to get more antibiotics. So, 6am... I go back and still no progress, still no contractions, intact waters... Sent home again. Now it's Friday. I'm 38 weeks. My sister is going home Sunday and I am selfishly hoping my water breaks or I go into labor so I can have my sister here and so I can meet my baby. She's obviously not ready. I keep reminding myself of that. But I'm working on trying not to feel disappointed that she's not here. I wish the doctor would never had said, "you're having a baby tonight". Not her fault, just got super excited. Now the waiting game.
