Still Waiting on Baby W

I am officially past my due date, and trying to patiently wait for our little boy to make his appearance. I will admit patience isn’t my strength — I am used to having some control, and at this point, the only one in control is Baby W. I guess I should just get used to giving up control since I hear that it’s not always possible in motherhood :).

We had a good appointment on Wednesday, and I am definitely progressing. My cervix is still 2cm dilated, but it’s gone from 50 to 80% effaced, which means that we are getting closer and closer to D-day. Effacement is basically how thin my cervix is — it has to be 100% effaced for dilation to really get going — so the doctor was happy with our progress. I am also having more consistent contractions — they are still pretty mild, but they have gotten as close as 7-8 minutes apart! I am thrilled that my contractions are getting closer together, but it’s a bit of tease since every night that I go to sleep, I am convinced that I’ll wake up in a few hours ready in “real” labor.

Thank you for all the prayers, happy thoughts, comments, and emails — I appreciate them! I look forward to sharing some baby pictures very soon!

Hugs and Baby Dust to all!

  1. Crossing my fingers that you get to meet your little one soon! πŸ™‚

  2. I’m sure baby W will be here anytime! Treasure your time in labor as it goes by so quickly and is such a magical time.

    Most babies are late anyway. My daughter (my oldest) was 3 days late and my son (my second) was a full week late! Don’t get too discouraged. Treasure your time as a pregnant mommy. =)

  3. Sending good thoughts your way – i’m sure it will be here before you know it. I hope that labor and delivery go as smoothly as possible and that baby W is perfect!
