How to

How to make your blog stats go through the roof? Have a baby. Late.

I'm betting nothing changes until Friday, when I'll be forced to think about things like induction. I don't want to be induced for my first experience with labor. I really don't. I'll sprint up and down stairs, whatever it takes, just please don't induce me. Hopefully the doctor is non-induction friendly.

If there's a reason to induce (like low fluid or something) then I will, obviously.

(I'm getting tired of posting under the "pregnancy" category. ON with life already.)


  1. Mexican food. Thai food. Stairs. Sex. I'm cheering for you.

  2. Spicy food: Thai works, I hear.

  3. They'll probably wait until you're at least 41 weeks before they do anything, and then they'll probably strip your membranes and see what that does before actually getting around to induction. I never had to go as far as being induced. Which is nice because, from what I understand, if they have to induce you, labor can be pretty intense (not that it isn't normally. :)) Keep hanging in there! These last days can really be the longest especially when the whole world seems to be waiting on you.

    I had to be induced last summer when I was a week overdue. Although it was a long process, it really wasn't that bad. Since I was at the hospital, it was a controlled environment (I was being monitered very closely and if I got uncomfortable they were able to give me something). Make sure to go for the epidural, it's the best thing :o). In the end, we had a beautiful baby girl. Which made the whole process worthwhile.
