Default Yup Still Waiting (Warning for sensitive people or men, graphic pregnancy details)

And I should not be the least bit surprised lol since my other 3 refused to come early too. They liked it so much in there that they all went to 42 weeks and still had to be induced one way or another. I have had membranes striped twice now and still he refuses to make an entry. lol He wants to make a grand entrance I think. We are thinking of writing him an eviction notice but doubt he will listen even if it was court ordered. lol

So for those waiting for little Nico baby pictures you will just have to continue to be patient. We have done good in the mean time though. Since he does have a cleft lip, and there is a chance he might not be able to latch properly for Breast feeding right away, I have been pumping this past week. We now have 5 baggies in the fridge of 1 ounce each of breast milk. So even if he can't latch for a few days he can still have breast milk. Our doctor is very impressed with that.

For this weeks doctors appointment they say I am 1 1/2 cms right now and she was able to stretch me to 2 1/2cms. So hopefully soon. I am also measuring at 40 weeks, though I am just over 39 weeks so they are very happy with how well I have done with my diet and exercise since finding out I had gestational diabetes. I have not gained any weight, like usual, this pregnancy. Instead I have lost a total so far of 15lbs. Happens every time so no concern there.

I have had tons of contractions the past two weeks but nothing that will settle or stay and I have tried a lot of the tricks. Sigh. Will update when we have more info but for now he is comfortable and happy, though I can't say comfortable is the word I would use for myself. lol

LOL At this point I might take you up on the trampoline offer. lol Our landlord asked Doug the other day if Nico had been born yet. Doug said no, that he is stubborn and comfy. So our landlord said he would be right over with his tool belt to help get him out since he must be stuck. Typical man. lol Thinks everything can be fixed with tools. lol

Our doula will be taking tons of pictures and videos and so forth. The modest ones I will make sure to share. Will not post any of breast feeding or such. But will post tons of pictures.

FTR, a man only needs two things in his toolbox. WD40 and a roll of duct tape.

If it moves and shouldn't, use the duct tape.
If it doesn't move and should, use the WD40.

For this instance, perhaps the WD40?

Thank you so much. I am really hoping little Nico follows the same path as his siblings and I can have him naturally. I have never had a C-Section and since we have to drive over 3hours one way, when he is 2 weeks old, to take him to the cleft lip/palette clinic for his 4hour evaluation with the surgeons and specialists I would prefer to not have to do that drive so soon after major surgery. Even having him natural will still make the drive uncomfortable but not in the same way.

Although it was totally against doctor's orders, I was driving on day 6 after my c-section with Cole. I was discharged on ray 4, and he was still in special care (and was for two weeks). I wasn't about to not go see my baby just because no one was available to take me. I even had a drain in my lower abdomen (w/this weird pump thingy) because of the MRSA infection accompanied by the 20 lbs of fluid I had due to preeclampsia (it was...nasty).

With Carson, I was driving on day 7, since that's when Cole got sick with viral encephalitis.

With Cooper, I drove the day after I was released from the hospital, which was day 5.

I'm not saying it wasn't uncomfortable, but I'm not one to sit back and not do things that need to be done, nor have I ever been one to let pain interfere with daily life (I think it's an athlete thing). However, I will say I paid a price, because my incisions opened up once after Cole and once after Cooper, and I was always getting fussed at by the OB for overdoing it (therefore I had some slight bleeding and anemia issues).
