Not Interested In Coming Out To Play

Another week has passed, another uneventful visit with the doctor. She did say that I am one centimeter dilated, but I think she just said that to make me feel better. She also did an ultrasound to check my amniotic fluid levels and said they were still really great. My blood pressure was still low so she said that she could not find a reason to induce me just yet (and apparently being uncomfortable does not count as a good reason). According to her, inducing me with an "unripen" cervix would lead to a long and unpleasurable labor- which she felt was unnecessary. So, we have an appointment next Monday and she will schedule an inducement for the 14th (yes, Valentine's Day). We aren't too thrilled about the possibility of Noah's birthday being on Valentine's Day- so keep your fingers crossed that I go into labor before then!

My mom ate arroz con pollo (chicken and rice) the night she went into labor with me. So go out and eat some ethnic food and see what happens ;)

I was overdue with my daughter Halle and the doctor induced me on my husbands birthday, which I was not thrilled about at all. It still took me a while to deliver, so she was actually born the day after. Hopefully, of course, you don't have to get that far and Noah will just come out naturally and soon.

Good Luck!
