So, man I love modern medicine (MOST of the time...)...
So these last few weeks of this pregnancy I've felt like utter crap.. can't sleep at night, near lethargic during the day, migrains, restless leg syndrome, my back is KILLING me...and the nausea and indigestion i've had for 8 months now...
anwyay, went to the docs, they checked things, and it didn't look like i was any closer to going into labor than i was 2 weeks ago when they checked..
granted, Krischan isn't due until the end of the month, but we were all hoping (especially me!) that since this was a second baby, and Annie was 2 days early, that something would be happening soooooooon...
and when they said no changes i was about ready to cry, blah!
However, i guess that since this /is/ my second baby, and he is only a week or so from his real due date, it's perfectly safe for me to be induced...
annnnnnd i'm scheduled for 7am thursday morning. woo!
Yes I know it sounds pathetic that I couldn't wait another week and let it happen on its own, but I feel TERRIBLE.. I did when i was pregnant with annie, too, and i swear to God, as soon as she was born and I was still laying on the stupid birthing bed getting my dozen stiches, I felt sooooo much better...
and if there was any kind of risk to Krischan, I'd say no way, I'll just suffer a little longer... but doc says it's perfectly fine.. baby is fine.. healthy, big, strong.
The other thing is that my doctor is going out of town for the weekend, so by scheduling it like this, I know he'll be there for the delivery...
which he was NOT for annie! which sucked.
so I'm all happy.. and busy.. trying to get everything in order..
oh and i'm totally getting a spinal block this time. last time I went all natural and hippie birth.. SOMUCHPAIN..
not doing that again.
so anyway. next post I make (lord willing) will be with happy baby story and pictures and stuff. :}
