Better late than never??

During our labor and delivery class at the hospital the nurse warned us to never look at the clock during labor. Well, I've come up with a new rule...stop looking at the calendar once you're past your due date!

Yesterday was my official due date, however I remain pregnant. It was a rather emotional day because I learned that I'm not dilated at all and it's possible that I will need to be induced.

The doctor was soooo nice and patient with us as we talked through what we should do. He said its generally best to have labor happen naturally, so he recommends that I go as long as I can. He set a date, June 11th, as the day we cannot go past. So, the good side is that there is there is a definite date planned. The not-great side is that I have another week to keep busy and keep my mind off how much I don't want to be pregnant anymore. Now, that's not to say I'm really looking forward to sore breasts, sleepless nights, and potentially recovering from said, "exit wound." I do feel that we are as ready as we are ever going to be for an infant in the house.

Thankfully I have the next day or so to hang out with Brian, then once he goes back to work on Tuesday I need to plan some things for me to keep busy with. I can't exactly just pop back into work, so to keep myself from literally dying from boredom....or risking driving Brian absolutely crazy...I really need to think about having a plan of action for this week!

I'm praying for you Rach! I can't imagine how frustrating that must be.
