Side profile of baby E! His right hand is covering his eyes 🙂
Ok, this isn’t cute or funny anymore. My little one is officially 12 days overdue making me 41 weeks and 5 days pregnant. On Tuesday the 14th, I was told that I had an “unfavorable cervix“. An induction was scheduled on St. Patricks Day, and as tempting as it was to finally meet my son, I wasn’t comfortable proceeding.
If you have read this post, you know that I had my heart set on a natural unmedicated birth. I wanted to give my son and my body a shot to see if nature would run its course. On Friday the 18th, I finally made progress and was dilating 1-2 cm however, I sit here today, March 21st still pregnant. When I meet with the doctor tomorrow I know it won’t be exciting to hear the word “induction” leave his lips, but…at this point, an induction doesn’t sound like a bad idea after all. Although I am praying that my body miraculously goes into labor between now and Thursday (Thursday is induction), I have accepted that things don’t always go as planned which sucks, but the goal is for a healthy baby.
So, how does it feel being overdue?
Like hell…hey, I’m being honest.
