**Whistling Patiently** — The Bump
Atlanta Babies

**Whistling Patiently**

So I am now 8 days overdue. I went for an ultrasound and NST this morning, where they declared the baby perfect and content and my fluid levels so well that it could go to 43 weeks. Shoot.Me.Now.

They also estimated a weight of 8lbs10oz, which is ironic considering I have gained 11 lbs this whole pregnancy, and of which I don't hold huge stock since Finn was estimated at 41weeks to be 8lbs3oz and born 7 days later he weighed 6lbs13oz.

But seriously? What is up with my babies and them not wanting to meet the world? I am pretty sure we provide a nice life, so I don't get it! And I was having contractions 5 minutes apart while I was there and didn't even know. 

Sigh. Another day, no baby. Tomorrow is another round of acupuncture, let's hope it works!

Sorry for the complaints :)

  • Seriously you can complain all you want. Glad the little guy is all nice and happy up in there but, I can imagine you are more than ready. Fingers crossed the needles help tomorrow. You are braver than I acupuncture sounds like my own personal hell. I am deathly afraid of needles. Even tiny ones. 
  • Andrea. I meant to ask you. Where r u delivering?

    Atlanta Medical Center. Although after recently visiting Northside I can see the appeal there - I go to my appts and almost every time see police walking prisoners in and out of the hospital, so it isn't quite the same vibe as the baby factory :)  But I want a water birth, so AMC it is!

    Thanks everyone, I feel bad complaining, I am just so done with being pregnant!

  • Hoo boy, lady. Did Dr. B tell it to you like he told me? He said, 8 out 10 women deliver by 41 weeks. Of those left, 9 out of 10 deliver by 42 weeks. Your day is soon, Mama!!

    He didn't! Probably cause I will be that 1 out of 10 that goes past 42 weeks :) He did keep saying that since I was smiling I must be doing okay, and then he laughed and said he knows how annoying it is when everyone keeps asking where the baby is and how you are feeling. He was good, and of course I wanted everything to be okay with the baby, but I also want a magic wand that tells me when I will have this monster baby!

  • GIRL! You complain all you want! I don't blame you one bit! You're a lot stronger woman than I am. I really hope you won't have to wait too much longer to see your little baby!

  • I think of you every day.  You just make the best homes ever for your babies.  Can't wait to hear the good news. :)
  • Holey Hell I would be flipping going nuts.  Vent away!  I hope that baby wants to come out soon and see his/her new family!!!  Maybe a pedicure will help.  Massaging the feet/ankles is suppose to work! 
  • No one here minds you complaining.  We all feel for you.  I couldn't imagine being pg for that long.  Good luck and I hope baby makes an appearance very soon.
