Staying chipper is becoming increasingly difficult. I left work early yesterday with bad contractions. I knew it wasn't labor yet but didn't want to be there if things picked up. They settled down to cramping and I'm sitill pregnant this morning. 5 days post dates and just so ready to meet my little sweet heart. It's unseasonably warm here so once I stop moping I think we will go on a picnic and hike. Once again, trying to remind myself to trust my body and baby. That DD2 was 8 days post dates and we had a great L&D. I also really don't want to go to church tomorrow and hear all the comments, but I don't want to mope around and miss service either.
@peachesnbean oh wow I didn't know they carried some if the same risks as an induction it seems like, thanks! I knew they were very unpleasant but wanted to try to see if one would jump start labor. I would like to avoid being induced and thought maybe that was my last chance. Since I haven't dilated yet, I'm guessing they won't do one for me. I just want a smooth labor as a FTM and as someone who has never stayed at a hospital, had any major surgery, and has a low pain tolerance. I feel very unprepared and anxious about the what-ifs
