So it turns out I’m not part of the 24% club. That’s the 24% of women who go into labour 48 hours after sweep. *sigh*
(I’m about to talk about my mucus plug so if that irks you skip the next paragraph).
I did however have that bloody show on Thursday night and continued to lose a lot of pink tinged mucus for the next almost 24 hours. And when I saw a lot I mean soooooooo much.
I have all but given up on an impending labour now but i am feeling a bit hormonal and miserable about it today so not all that hopeful. I have slept really well the last 2 night post sweep which has been a nice change but today I just still feel so tired. Thankfully Eric has taken Monkey out for the day to give me a break and in about 20 mins I am going to have another massage during which I may just nap on the table. Then the plan is to come home and nap some more. I am just SO freaking tired.
We decided to invoke our inner hippy this morning and during a family cuddle in bed we said a little prayer to baby girl and invited her to come join our family. We told her we have all her things all ready and waiting for her and that we are so excited to meet her. Monkey was so cute and after every line I said he repeated it. It was rather adorable.
I have had some really lovely reassuring texts from my doula this morning which was great but for some reason they also ended up with me in tears. Probably because I am a tired hormonal mess. As I was bawling my eyes out I begged baby girl to come earth side. I just need to meet her and see that she is ok now. Scans and movement and everything else just isn’t cutting it for me. I need to hold her in my arms and kiss her little face and see that she is healthy and well.
I am also starting to becoming really apprehensive about the fact that she is a big baby. How much bigger is she going to get if she bakes for another week or so? I also really don’t want to have my baby on 7 June which will be exactly 41 weeks according to the Dr’s dates and I’m worried if I induce the day before that it might slip into that day and all other stupid control freak things that I need to stop thinking about.
Oh and my friend’s sister who is about 10 days behind me lost her plug yesterday and I’m convinced she is going to have her damn baby before me and I am being all stupid and envious about that. Pffffft.
Anyway, I think I really only have moaning left in me so might leave it there. It’s about time to leave for that restorative massage/nap anyhow.
