Wondering if I'm in labor yet? Well, we might be waiting a little longer....read on!
Our doctor told us my due date was March 5th. I totally took him at his word and didn't think twice that he could be weeks off.
Well, here we are, March 19th, and no baby yet. I'm feeling great and seems to me I could go another week or more with baby! So....I did what I should have done long ago and did the math myself. Looking back and counting the days since my last cycle, I calculated that my due date is the END of March rather than at the beginning!!!!!!!!! What?! I have NO idea where March 5th came from. I'm really curious what happened though....
Guess I made the big mistake of falling into third baby syndrome—overly busy, being more relaxed, and not on top of my pregnancy like I should have been. Being this will be my first hospital birth, things are so much different than my home birth experiences.....my midwives were so much more detailed oriented on procedures, explaining every detail to me, very concerned about my health, and kept me accountable on eating habits, birth preparations and so on. Not saying that I'm not grateful for my Doctor because he was the one that practically saved my life after hemorrhaging severely after Elijah's birth! I'm just saying that hospitals just do things so differently....I'm learning.
Anyway, talk about a rollercoaster of emotions! I'm grateful God is in control....I thank & praise Him. His plans are perfect, and I know He allows all things to work together for good!
