One Her Way (part 3)

39 weeks pregnant, exactly.
3+cm dialated

Well, here I am...still pregnant. But for the last day or so, I haven't really minded it so much. I've gotten a few bursts of energy and have done some cleaning around the house, which makes me feel good. I haven't had the energy to actually GO anywhere, and am pretty sure it's not a good idea anyway.

I had a doctors appointment on Monday, and he seems to believe I will still be pregnant when he gets back from his vacation (Sunday). He scheduled me to be induced on Monday, and frankly I am not so sure why. I didn't ask, either. I guess I was so shocked that I just went with it. But I must say, I am feeling a bit at odds with it. I mean, yeah, I want her outta my belly! But I also want her to come when she is good and ready. I am thinking about calling him on Sunday and asking him what his thoughts were in regards to the induction. Maybe he just felt bad for me and wanted to assist in putting me out of my misery. We'll see. And I know, I know, being induced isn't a good thing, you don't need to tell me the downsides to it. Just understand, I will do what I feel is right for me and my baby, as I always have.

I have been spending the last few days having lots of fun with Jonah. Playing and just sitting with him. I have such a fear of how he is going to react. I am not so worried about how I am going to handle 2 babies or all that, and besides breastfeeding, I think everything will just be second nature, especially with it being the second time around.

Bursts of energy are always a good sign. I went into labor with my second baby when I decided I wanted to stay pregnant for a few days, just so that I could get more cleaning done. Maybe the baby will come soon and induction won't be an issue either way.

Go with your gut instinct on the induction. Sounds like you are. I wish you a happy and healthy birth. Positive vibes, mama! :)
