With a technical 7-day-plus wait ahead, I am impatient… I want to meet this little person sooooo badly!! In anticipation and to enjoy my last “me” day for a while, my friend Nikki treated me to a pedicure, foot massage and a lovely massage. Sadly my toes look like porkies, but the pink is pretty… and makes me feel more ready to face the hospital.
We went to the doctor just now and the final verdict is…
I am going in for a c-section at 10 am tomorrow morning, the surgery is in the afternoon. I will be back in the land of the living on Monday morning… All prayers and good thoughts are welcome! This time tomorrow, we will have our little boy…
How your baby’s growing:
Your little one’s umbilical cord is now 50 cm long and is 1.3 cm thick. All babies are different sizes. If your baby has not grown adequately and there is not enough amniotic fluid your doctor might not want you to go any further in the pregnancy. Either way, he’s due any day now!
How you may be feeling:
You may feel frustrated, achey and a bit discouraged as you wait, sometimes impatiently, for your baby to arrive. There are ways to try and bring on labour, safely, of course. Though they don’t always work – your baby will release a hormone when he’s ready to arrive, which will naturally start your labour. If you’ve planned a Caesearean you may already have given birth!
