Due Date, Schmue Date (40 Weeks Today!) & Isaac’s Bassinet

Yep, today is the day the doctors said I would be DUE! Someone really needs to tell my body to get with it. I have everything all ready for little Isaac and my body is certainly ready. I went to my 40-week OB appointment yesterday and was checked, only to discover that Im about the same as my last appointment 80% effaced and 2 cm dilated. I was disappointed but I do realize that those numbers are meaningless when it comes to time.

One thing I did do that Im not sure yet was a good idea or not was let my doctor strip my membranes. Oh my word, I had a miserable night last night! I thought I was going to go into labor for sure, my contractions were STRONG and I was feeling awful. I had one contraction I couldnt walk through right before bed so I told my husband that wed better get to bed and sleep before we had to go in. Then what happens? I sleep through the night! Well, I had taken a Unisom to help me sleep because I didnt want to be waking up every hour if nothing was going to happen my doctor said it wouldnt stop labor (I wouldnt miss it haha) and I figured I could use all the sleep I could get. But no more action all night.

This morning Ive had a couple of contractions but nothing to write home about. Gotta stop thinking about it now or Ill go crazy, LOL. And sure, my due date is here its just a date, gotta wait on this baby to be ready for himself. 🙂 I did tentatively make a date for induction on the 27th (8 days overdue) but Im fully expecting to go into labor before then. Im not really sure I want to be induced so will probably cancel if it comes to that. I really want to go into labor naturally even if it means waiting a bit. Lets hope Im not too late, though!

I smile every morning that I wake up and see this sweet bassinet next to my bed aint it pretty? I cant wait to put Isaac in it!
