My son will be here in a matter of days. Technically he should have been here last Sunday but like his dad, he is procrastinating since he’s 7 days over due. This waiting game has been hard but I don’t think it’s been harder on anyone than Stacey. I have known A LOT of pregnant women in my life and every day I am amazed at how well she is dealing with this. She hasn’t had the mood swings and odd cravings like many women get. She hasn’t gotten angry or sad very often for no reason like you see in the movies. I am just super proud of her. Proud that she’s mine. Proud that she’s carrying my son. Proud that he will be his mother. Just Proud.
I know she’s scared and nervous; I am also. Every day that goes by we know it will be just that much harder to do this naturally which is what she really would like to do. Last we knew my son was measuring about 10 lbs and that was at 39 weeks. She’s at 41 weeks now―almost 42….so yea bigger. I honestly didn’t think she would go this long. Unless something happens sooner we will have an induction this week.
More than anything we are excited about finally getting to be parents. I have spent 35 years waiting for this kind of perfect. Yes, things moved quickly for us but I’ve never been in a relationship this strong with someone so strong, caring and wonderful. I am one lucky guy and my son is already a lucky boy. He’s got the best mom I could ever hope for. She balances me out and will get the best parts of Stacey as well as my own.
So we have a great relationship, a place of our own, great futures, great family, a baby room filled with wonderful things. Now we’re just waiting for the baby to get here. So, does anyone have any great advice to share on the birth side of the equation? Thoughts on C-sections or Inductions
