My due date has come to pass and I’m still playing the waiting game. I can’t believe I have surpass the Week 40 mark and I guess not many women can tell their future children this statement “I was carrying you over 40 weeks!”
Being in 40 weeks also meant something to my bathing scale this morning, which read a whopping 40 pounds gained in this pregnancy! 40 pounds! Yes, I have gained 40 pounds. Good luck to me in losing them after Annakate is out.
Anyway, my doctor will do an ultrasound check on me this Thursday, to check on my fluid levels and ensure that I am able to carry on my gestation up to Week 42 (before my induction date).
Having said that, I really, really, really pray that Annakate will come on her own as I do not want to be medically induced. I really don’t like the idea of having pitocin or cervadil being injected into me. They cause longer hours of labor and may cause horrible contractions as compared to natural labor.
Alright, Annakate, Listen to mummy here. I am hereby giving you an eviction notice to get out of my uterus or else I will start charging you daily rental rates of deducting toys. 😛
