I was all set to have a long pregnancy - both my brother and I were two weeks late, so I figured I’d follow in my mom’s footsteps in that way. No big deal, my pregnancy has been pretty easy, and I told everyone I was due in mid July anyway (padding it a bit so people wouldn’t bug me as much with"haven’t you had that baby yet?" comments).
Then at my 36 week checkup, my doctor told me there was no way I was going to go last until my due date, and i could go basically whenever. I freaked a bit, wrapped up all my current projects, finished buying everything we needed for the nursery, then - started waiting. Same thing at my 37 week appointment. “Could be any time!” and at my 38 week appointment.
I am now officially losing my mind. I’ve read every post on the dope. I’ve read all my interesting books. I’ve played all my good video games. I’ve cleaned the nursery. There is nothing left to DO, and I’m bored. I’m 50% effaced, 4cm dilated, and had my bloody show a week and a half ago. I’m ready to meet my son already!
