Impatiently waiting....still!

I know I'm only 2 days past my due date but here's the facts: I've been having TONS of contractions for the past 6 weeks. That's unusual for me. I figured that the contractions combined with the extra stress I've had for this entire pregnancy just might make the baby arrive a bit early. Yes, I was wrong but what's wrong with at least being on time? So, here I am impatiently waiting for a baby that I feel may just never come. It really stinks to feel like my life is on hold. Every night I think "tonight might be the night!" only to wake up disappointed in the morning. I have been walking EVERYDAY and eating spicy foods and labor inducing pizza and have no baby to show for it. My ribs are aching from the constant feet up in them and my lower back feels like it may just crack in two. Seriously....stick a fork in me, I'm done! I have an appointment tomorrow morning where the docs will want to schedule an induction. I SO don't want to be induced. Pitocin just sucks. I feel so bad because there are SO many people waiting on pins and needles to make that trip to the hospital. It's going to be a real party in that waiting room and delivery room. And everybody is stuck in this holding pattern with me....impatiently waiting!

I had one on time, one three weeks early...and you don't want to know how late my last one was!!!

Hope it's tonight!

(10 days...that's how long...)
The good news is that they really can't stay in there forever...I think...

UGH I'm sorry to hear you're still waiting! I agree pitocin sucks!! I had it with my first son and they threatened it with the second after my water broke and I wasn't contracting enough and apparently my cervix heard and went on ahead to dialate!!

Good luck!
