April Fools!!

Well, I will be getting my "diamond baby" after all.  We have made it to April.  Nathan is due tomorrow and so far has shown no clear signs of wanting to come out.  He is snug as a bug I guess.  Who could blame him though really?  I mean he is warm and constantly being held.  He is naked and doesn't have to worry about scratchy clothes.  He gets fed whenever.  He gets to float around all day and listen to everything that is going on in the "other world" without being exposed to it.  He doesn't have to share his momma with anyone.. he constantly has her....  Yup, he's never coming out. 

Tomorrow is my due date and I also have an appointment to see my OB.  My "40th week" visit.  We'll see if I've made any progress.  I've actually considered just waiting this little guy out.  I mean, I've come this far.. why not just wait and let nature take it's course!?!?  But on the other hand... the convenience of knowing a final date.  A light at the end of the tunnel, an ending.. sounds nice.  Who knows.  I just honestly don't think today is the day for little man to come.. unless he just up and surprises me and I start contracting.. so far.. nothing.  Just still sore from the other day and a lot of pressure from where it seems he has dropped.  Besides that... nothing. 

I'm going to do some more cleaning today and see if that helps get anything going.  If not.. well there is always tomorrow.

Yup you come this far...wait him out!  I know I was SOO happy I waited because the pain was 70 % less then having the patocin!  I was totally amazed!  I told my husband...if I could have THIS sort of pain rather then the first two delivery's (both induced) I would have a couple more!  I just started hurting where I didn't like it at all when I was nine centimeters!  And bouncing on that exercise ball really helped get the little guy to come down too.  Try that!  My water broke shortly after I did that! lol Good luck and I hope you choose to wait it out :)
