Due Date?

03 Oct

At long last, our baby’s due date has arrived! Yeah! Unfortunately, that DOESN’T guarantee that he’s going to actually come today. In fact, I’ve read that only 5% of births actually occur on the so-called “due date.” My feeling is that it’s really just an educated guess and that nobody really knows when babies are actually due. It varies so much. Each mother and each baby is different.

So while we’ve completed the countdown and will now be considered “late” (as all of our children have been), I’m not concerned about the health of our baby. What concerns me is an over-anxious OBGYN that may try to push for a C-section if she goes over by too long. Of course, there comes a certain point that Robin will be ready to do anything to get our little boy here! Unfortunately, since she’s had a previous C-section (and two successful VBACs), they won’t induce her.

So we wait…

    BabyWatch 2007 update–as of today’s 40-week doctor’s appt., I am dilated to a “3”, which is a good sign that things will be happening in the next few days!

    I can’t wait to get that phone call! You can call me in the middle of the night and I’ll come over to stay with the kids.
