Yesterday was my due date, but still no baby. I’ll be honest, I’m disappointed, but I’m trying to stay positive. A lot of women go past their due dates, but since I went into labor with Elliot on my due date I thought I would have delivered by now — especially since “they” say 2nd babies usually come sooner. Plus, I’m eating into my limited maternity leave with no baby… frustrating.
If I still haven’t gone into labor by the 9th, I will have a NST (non-stress test) and an ultrasound to make sure baby girl is still doing well. If all is good, they’ll let me go to 41 weeks and 5 days tops. Still no baby? Induction. I really really don’t want to be induced, but if it’s best for baby girl then so be it. She is most important.
In the meantime, I’m doing all that I can to stay busy and bring on labor naturally — pineapple, long walks, spicy food, birth ball, etc. I’m definitely staying away from the castor oil though. That stuff scares me!
If you would be so kind, please send positive labor vibes my way! I really need them. ❤
