It's September - and I still have a baby in my belly! 'Well, I never' is about the reaction from me. Considering my last pregnancy came to an abrupt end at 36 weeks ... well, I never expected to go over my due date!
It is, of course, a brilliant and sensational thing to go full term. Amazing! I have done so well (well, the drugs have worked, maybe I should put it that way!).
At today's clinic appointment I had another stretch done - poor cervix, third one in a week. This one, however, was successful. At the very same appointment I signed the paperwork for a caesarean on Thursday.
Talk about an each-way bet.
And so we wait. This is the 11th hour.
I've experienced some deadline pressure in my working life ... but nothing compares to this!!
