...as induce-able as a brick!!

That is what my doctor told me today at my appointment. How very encouraging to the 39 week 3 day pregnant woman. I wanted to bawl right there, and almost did, and still kind of do... I'm still not dilated, and barely more effaced than last time. I didn't gain any weight this week and my baby boy is measuring 8 lbs 4 oz. Just one more ounce than last week. Which to me means that he is done growing in there, but what do I know. I guess we'll just wait and see. I have my next appointment this Friday instead of next week because my due date is Saturday. I just wanted to give an update before I banish myself to my couch (with my rented movies and my big bag of Halloween candy) for the rest of the afternoon.... ps I won't be taking calls... ha ha ha.

Kami, I am sooo sorry. When I had Adelyn, my doctor told me NO WAY!!! I was dilated to a 3 and 90%effaced. I did cry at the doctor's office, (so you sound a lot stronger than I was). My water broke 2 days after my due date. I don't even dare tell you how much she weighed. When I got pregnant with Connor, I made my doctor promise me that he would induce me at 38 weeks. Good Luck!!!

Ohhh sad! :(... I'm sorry Kami. Little Brock will come eventually? Don't know how soon, but eventually he'll be here! :) Hope your movies and candy make you feel better!

I'm so sorry to hear that.. He just must like his mama's belly!! Enjoy your afternoon and he will be here soon!!

Kami, don't feel bad. Travis was EIGHTEEN DAYS overdue. Thank goodness they don't let you go that long any more. Watch all the movies and eat all the candy you want. Call us when he decides to come out!

Bless your heart Kami. That little boy is a stinker! I hope after all this waiting he pops out for yah!

dang I'm sorry. I wish you had a doctor that'd induce you anyway. My body never changed either and my doc induced, and I had a quick labor! So keep us updated. Maybe your water will break tonight! I'm crossing my fingers for you!!!

Hey Kami, or should I say Kelfami! It's your long lost frient Amber, do you remember me? I stumbled upon your blog (obviously)
Anyway it was good to "see" you. And congrats on the baby, hang in there! Enjoy the last few baby free days you have. Not that its not great or anything.
I wont tell you that mine came 2 weeks early :)

Hang in there!! What women do to have their children :) Don't worry it is all worth it! You know that the doctor can legally induce you a week early, something to keep in mind anyway. Keep us updated!!

Kami, what a bummer to have to hear that! I would have cried to. Unfortunately, these kids just come when they want! It took Jocelyn 19 hours to finally come once I went to the hospital! They're stubborn!

Sharielle said...

Don't worry, I was exactly the same. I never dilated to more than a one until I went into labor. Hang in there, I was a few days late and it was brutal so I know how you feel. It will happen, I promise!!!

Hey one other thing. I have a thank you card that I have been meaning to send to you for oh about 3 months. I can't find your address anywhere. Before things get crazy with the baby can you e-mail me your address to sharielle82@yahoo.com? I feel so bad it is so late!

I think you need a new doctor!! J/K I'm sorry he won't start you that is the worst thing ever. I'll keep my fingers crossed that you go today! (I heard jumping on the tramp works :)!)

The Parks' said...

lol I love the visual aid! You crack me up Kami... well I guess it will be that much more exciting when Brock does finally arrive! :) Hang in there

Randy and Malissa Johnson said...

I'm sure he will get here soon! With Morgan I was a 1 for a month and so after I was a week late, they decided to induce me! I cried at my last 2 appointments...I thought my doctor hated me! It almost over and before you know it you will be able to hold that cute baby in your arms!
