41 weeks and counting…

Today I am officially one week overdue, which won me a visit to the hospital to do a non-stress test. Essentially, they hooked my belly up to a monitor so they can check the baby’s heart beat for 20 minutes while I’m supposed to click a button every time the baby moves. Apparently, everything was normal and the baby was active, which is good. Then the midwives gave me the recipe for a special tea that is supposed to help get me into labor. Yeah, right. I mean, my brain kinda knows that at some point the baby WILL be born, but my gut is telling me I’ll be pregnant forever. Anyway, Zak made the tea for me and I drank a liter of it in half an hour, and I sure was bloated, but I haven’t seen a contraction yet.

On the bright side, seeing the midwife today means I don’t have to go to my scheduled appointment tomorrow, so unless I’m in labor, I can take my son to his first day of preschool tomorrow with Zak. To be continued…
