So we’ve written before about the frustrations of waiting during the first stage of pregnancy.
Now we’re being frustrated at waiting during the last stage.
Yesterday was the New Kid on the Block’s due date. Yes, yes, we know that first babies are always late, but our obstetrician has been telling us for the past fortnight that given that NKOTB’s head was engaged and she was getting big, he expected her to be early. In fact, last week he told us that there was a 90% chance we wouldn’t make our next appointment on Wednesday. But we’re still waiting.
The worst part about it is that we know that is actually is going to happen soon. Worst case scenario we only have another week or so to wait. But if that happens, given our ‘early’ warnings, the period that we’ve been anxious about her arriving will have stretched to a month! It’s very tiring…
Anyway, we’re trying all the usual things to bring on labour: Raspberry Leaf Tea, hot foods (too much Curry!) etc, but so far to no avail. Does anyone have any other sure-fire methods?
