40 Weeks (tomorrow)

Tomorrow is my due date, I will have officially made it to 40 weeks!

I'm feeling a little angsty today, I've been sitting on the couch most of the morning alternating between hugs with Max and Cooper. I have so much on my to-do list that I want to get done, but I can't quite seem to get moving.




The anxiety I'm feeling is coming from the appointment I have with the obstetrician tomorrow. The appointment where I think he is going to tell me that time's up and I'm having a c-section. When I originally asked him if I could try for a vbac instead of repeat elective c-section he said 'yes, but if you go past 40 weeks you'll be having the caesar'.

I had one with Max, I know it's not that big a deal. But this time round I really wanted to experience what it's like to go into labour...

I'm trying to stay positive though, I still have 27 hours left before that appointment and I'm sure they won't admit me to hospital on the spot. So I figure I have a couple of days left to somehow convince this baby to come out on his own :).

Cross your fingers for me!!
