Staying Put

So, it looks like most of my due date compatriots have had their babies, but mine appears to be going nowhere fast.

Had a checkup this morning. cervix is still closed and high. I am now scheduled for three NST's - one on Friday (my actual due date), one the following Monday and one on the 26th - Merry Christmas to me. If baby is still not here by then, I will be induced on the 28th.

I really don't want to have to be induced. And I really want this baby out, like yesterday. Sooo, needless to say, I will be exercising, taking bumpy car rides, eating spicy food and someone will probably be happy to know that he'll be getting lucky a few times this week. Although, I can't guarantee that it'll be any good with the beached whale that I've become.

Otherwise, I guess I'll just wrap Christmas gifts and keep working as usual. Doctor said to "try not to think about it too much". HAHAHAHA! ugh.

Sorry you are "staying put" for the moment--hopefully all of those things you have planned will help get the little one in motion! Thinking of you!

Chuckling a bit over the someone getting lucky part. I hope that something works and convinces that little one it's time to come out!!
