-5 days

Well if you haven't noticed already we still don't have a baby in our arms. She is 5 days past her due date and tomorrow makes her over due(by doctors opinions). We had a bio-physical ultrasound on Thursday with Dr. Maslow, she almost didn't pass. They test on 4 areas fluid, tone, movement, breathing. She had light breathing, good fluid and she moved her eyes. Did you know they can see the iris of the eye through the ultrasound? It was cool and creepy at the same time. Anyways so would not move. 30 minutes is what they give them to pass and after pushing on my tummy from all sides, sitting up and laying down she still wouldn't move. We were a bit nervous because they have to have 8 out of 10 to pass and she was given a 6. So they put me on a non stress test for 20 minutes. Of course the second they hook me up she starts wiggling. They continued the test though and passed her. We had hopes that I would go into labor but so far my contractions get going really good and strong and then quit every night around 10ish. I mowed the grass and weeded my flowerbeds yesterday hoping that would jump start things, well same thing happened. So I am frustrated and am close to tears a lot. I just don't know what she is waiting for. I see Nancy on Monday and will be 41 weeks, at that point we are going to have to figure out a method to get this baby here, either naturally or medically because I am close to being spent. I am trying 2 cups of Raspberry leaf tea and 3 evening prime rose oil pills a day to try and get things going without stressing little miss out. I have lost parts of my mucus plug the last 2 days so I guess somethings are happening, but man it is slow. I don't even hardly hope that today will be the day.

3 lil' notes:

Those are the hardest, especially with your first pregnancy and delivery. Just know that things usually take their time starting, but once they really get started you'll have her here very soon. Still sending labor vibes your way. :D
