So, I'm still pregnant. I think I will be forever. Or for at least another 2-4 weeks. It shouldn't be a big deal, as I'm not actually due until the 11th. (Also, Saturday night I had the worst contraction, and it hurt so bad I'm kind of happy to leave him in here until next March, to avoid that kind of pain again.)
But, I kind of need to get him out.
1- I'm bigger than I've ever been in my life. (Well, it feels that way, but I did actually weigh more at the end (2 weeks overdue) with Essi. But, I started this pregnancy 20+ lbs lighter, so it feels like more.)
2- I really want to meet this little guy.
3- Heartburn sucks. There's no other way around it.
4- He's felt like he was going to fall out since early June.
5- I had a dream (back in July) that seemed very real, and was similar to a previous experience that turned out to be real, telling me that this little guy would come sometime between the 22-29. (Of I assumed September. If my dream meant October, I think I'd like an epidural now just to get me to the 29th of October.)
6- Everyday he's in there, he's getting bigger. The bigger he gets, the bigger his head gets, and guess who gets to push that thing out...
Anyway, I thought it would be fun to let you vote on this.. When would be the best time for this guy to come? What are your predictions? Whoever guesses the closest wins!
So, please vote. Even if you are a lurker, or if you've never commented, please do.
1~When will he come? (Date and time.)
***If you are closest you will win Either a cheap calendar or a cheap watch. (Think dollar store.)
2~How big will he be?
***You'll win a Big Hunk candy bar. (If they still make those.)
3~How long will labor be?
***You'll win a Magic Eraser.
***disclaimer*** It may be a month or longer before you get your prize. Also, only people in the states will be mailed a prize. (the 48 states...)
Some random facts to help you make your decision
*With both previous babies, I've been induced.
*Sariah on her due date, and Esther 2 weeks late.
*Sariah's labor was 24 1/2 hours on pitocin with an epidural.
*Essi's labor was 6 hours with pitocin with an epidural that did not work at all. (I'm still wondering where it all went..)
*This time we will not be being induced. (So, no pitocin speeding things up, or helping things along.) Unless there's some sort of major medical emergency, this will be a 100% au natural birth.
*Sariah was 9 lbs.
*Esther was 9 lbs 5 oz.
*I was 9 lbs 5 oz.
*There is the forementioned dream with the dates predicting the 22-29.
Anyway, so vote away!
