Week 39
~ Still Very Pregnant

39 weeksSo I am still here! I really thought I'd have a baby girl in my arms by now. I went in for my week 39 check and I was 2 1/2 centimeters dilated and 75% effaced so I really thought we were moving in the birthing direction very shortly. Now I'm almost to 40 weeks and no action. I had one day where I felt intense pressure and thought okay, this must be the start, but it wasn't. I now cannot bend over at all, getting in and out of bed is almost impossible as well as turning over in bed. This belly is ridiculous as it has just gotten so big . . . am officially to the point where I am ready to be done. I am so ready to see her and hold her.

I really don't want to be induced, but each day that goes by the induction looks more and more tempting. I know my doctor is hesitant to induce since I'm technically still a VBAC, but I know that he won't let me go past week 41. So the end is in sight; within two weeks I know she'll be here with us. And I'm still hopeful she'll come on her own in the next few days.
