Arghhhh, I have an appointment on Tuesday about monitoring to aviod induction, as my consultant said he was happy for me to carry on as long as bub was happy intill things proceed in their own. I will at least get an examination to see if anything is progressing on its own and I have some questions to ask about how safe and effective this monitoring is, as I know after a certain stage the placenta stops working properly and chance of still birth increases, so I want to see just how the monitoring is done. I did some reading last night on some birth stories and one woman said haw she carried on till she went naturally and she finally went into labour 4weeks and 3 days over her due date!!!! Noooo I dont want to be like this another month! As it is I have been finding peoples comments quite amusing the last few days, firstly if I tell people bub was due Wednesday they make comments like my god, are you okay, how are you still up and walking, etc, like hitting your due date means you should be imediatly bed bound!!! The other thing is at least one reletive a day is calling asking if their is anything hapening or any news! and were talking parents here, like we would answer 'yeah they were born the other night we just havent told you!!!' I mean they all know that as soon as there is some sign of movement they will be updated. And asking if I have any idea when it will be, like I have sheduled it or something. Rant over for now I think, dont even get me started on OH's paternety leave, and how they want to cut it short if it clashed with a holiday someone else has booked etc etc. Twats!
