39 is the number that comes right before 40. Like 7 days before 40.
Had my check up on Friday. I have some signs of progress, but like most things I discovered throughout pregnancy, it can either mean nothing or mean something. I had some contractions Friday but nothing regular or terribly uncomfortable.
My doctor doesn't let you go much past your due date so that means this kid has about 10 days before eviction. I am pretty open minded when it comes to a "birth plan" but the one thing I wanted to avoid was being induced. I have my fingers and toes crossed he decides to come before the eviction.
The labor/delivery/hospital anxiety has kicked in FULL FORCE. Unfortunately my reaction to stress is to stop eating and sleeping, neither of which are particularly desirable pregnancy behaviors. I actually lost weight this week compared to my appointment last week so I need to be a more conscious eater.
Come on little guy, be a control freak like your mama and choose your own birth date!
