What If Our Baby Is Overdue?

What if our baby is overdue and just doesn’t seem to want to come out?

I have no idea what I would do if Baby’s due date came and went and I was still sitting here twiddling my thumbs nine days later. I mean, really, I know it’s not that uncommon, but it would still be totally crazy. Right?

…And here we are. Baby was due to be born on April 3, and it’s now April 12, with no imminent signs of labour. We’ve been into the hospital a couple of times for ultrasounds, to make sure everything’s okay, and all of the signs are good, so the waiting continues.

It’s begun to feel like this Baby isn’t actually ever going to come out. We’re just going to go on indefinitely, with Larissa having difficulty standing up from the couch and me giving her back massages.

Despite that feeling, we have another ultrasound tomorrow, and then we’re on the induction list for this weekend, pending the results of the ultrasound. So one way or another, this baby is coming out sooner rather than later!

And when our baby comes out, no matter what professions or hobbies it engages in once it grows up, I know it’s going to be my favourite baby I’ve ever met.

    1. I’m going to take the diplomatic route and say that I’ll expect things to go to overtime when #2 comes, and we’ll see whether the cagey veteran can hold off the newcomer’s young legs and enthusiasm!

  1. You pray and thank God that He knows when the right time for the baby to be born. You thank God that the baby will be healthy. And anyway, waiting builds anticipation, right?
