I'm 39 weeks and 3 days pregnant and I'm trying to enjoy these last few days because I know our lives will soon change, again, very drastically. As much as I know there will be sleepless nights, difficult feedings and messy diapers, I just want to have my body back. I hope that isn't too selfish but I am as big as a house (see evidence below) and so uncomfortable...though I don't think I'm nearly as uncomfortable as when I was pregnant with my son because I'm not as swollen.
So, we had a doctor's appointment yesterday and my doctor is sending us to the hospital Saturday morning, my due date, for a NST and if everything looks good I have already scheduled another doctor's appointment for a week from today. She said otherwise, she will just induce me on Saturday. I am not a fan of being induced - I was with my son but it was 5 days after my due date and it went smoothly - especially for being my first pregnancy. I have this strange feeling that she is just going to induce me Saturday no matter what the results of the NST are because a) she is working on-call at the hospital this entire weekend, therefore she would be the one to deliver me and b) she told me she isn't going to let me go more than a week past my due date.
We'll see how the rest of this week goes. I would love for my baby girl to show up via her own schedule so I will be continuing my long walks with my son every day and praying that she comes soon!
