I've decided...

I've decided that I'm not going to set an inducing date. I'm just going to let Miles decide when he wants to come, but I'm only going to give him until my due date. If he still hanging out after that I will intervene. There is no way I'm going 41 weeks. So yeah, that's what I decided. I'm just going to chill and be patient. Well... I'm going to at least try. Hahaha.

Also, for those of you who didn't know, I had 2 trips to the hospital. Both were obviously FALSE ALARMS, but I've notice that when they tell me the difference between pre-labor and actually labor it pretty much sounds the same. So, I believe by the time I realize I've gone into labor Miles will already be born. I'll end up walking into the hospital with Miles rapped up in a blanket and I say to the nurses, "You know, I think I went into labor, but I'm not sure. Can we check to make sure?" Or I'll be waddling in yelling, "HE'S COMING!!" Due to the fact I wasn't sure I was in actually labor and so I waited wayyyyy toooo longggg!

We shall see which one of the stories will happen. I'm kinda hoping that neither of those happen. But do you think?

I'm glad you're letting nature take its course. You are progressing which means he's preparing to make his entrance. Let's see... when I was told I was 80% effaced & 2 cm dilated, the Reedy came 2 weeks later. My major clue to going into labor was losing my plug. I'm hoping that maybe you'll have something like that happen to make it easier for you to know. It's so hard when it's your first!! It's all so new!!

I have absolutely no clue as to how I am going to decorate Quinci's room! I guess I should finish Reed's first! Bwahaha! My poor children will be 18 with white walls!

P.S. I plan to mail out your purse & the clothes for little Miles tomorrow. You should have them by Friday or Saturday.

Oh, any info on there being a pill to take so your milk doesn't come in?

I've heard that you can tell the difference when you feel the real thing. Dont worry he'll come.

I'll bet that now that you decided to let him come naturally, Miles will be on the way REAL soon. He just didn't want those inducing drugs in your system and that was why he faked you out twice. Hahaha.

Hopefully he will come sooner rather than later so that we can all see his sweet little face and just heap the love on him!

You are SO FUNNY!! But I'm glad that's what you've decided because that really is the best way. Also, inducing can be painful and stressful to both mother and baby. So I'm glad you are going to chill and let nature work it's magic.
Love you!
Love MOM
