So today I had an appointment to check on baby Josiah. And unfortunately it looks like he’s going to be overdue. I’ll be 40 weeks this Wednesday and I was hoping for some more progressive news. Especially since last Monday my doctor said I was dilated to 4 centimeters and Josiah was settled down low.
Clearly things have changed.
So here’s what happened- the doctor checked me (twice) and both times she couldn’t reach my cervix!! Apparently Josiah has retreated north, away from the exit. I can’t blame him. He had Luby’s last night for dinner and ice cream for dessert. Who would want to leave that kind of environment?!
All that to say, I’m pretty certain he’s going to be overdue just like his brother and sister before him. This is really all Kevin’s fault. I recently found out from my mother in law that Kevin was 15 days PAST his due date!! Are you kidding me?!? This explains so much, not just about our kids but about every fight we’ve ever had about what it means to “be on time.” I’m always 15 minutes early and Kevin’s just fine being 15 minutes late. But that’s another blog for another day.
For now, I’m betting that Josiah will be overdue and chronically late the rest of his life…just like his daddy. 😉
So my next appointment is Monday the 25th as I am trying to go into labor on my own. If they induce me, the medication could cause my previous c-section scar to rupture.
I’m praying I go into labor on my own before Thursday of this week since my doctor is going out of town this Friday.
Stay tuned. I’m sure it’ll be interesting no matter what happens.
