Babies are supposed to "drop" lower into the pelvis as the delivery date nears. Unfortunately, it appears that no one told Connor that. In fact, I think he has done just the opposite and has actually moved UP into a higher position. He must have locked his teeny-tiny feet in-between my ribs and pulled himself up to crowd out my esophagus and tonsils in a ploy to make a secret escape through my mouth.
Not so fast, Connor, I'm on to you. It looks like we're experiencing a classic case of baby-boy-doesn't-want-to-come-out-syndrome. And, as well all know, there are only two options here: (1) We induce labor on Monday night or Tuesday AM this week or (2) I am going to be pregnant for all of eternity.
Dennis and I are going to see our OB tomorrow morning and the plan - as it stands right now - is for them to run some tests and then call us later in the day when a bed is ready at Northside. We then check in, and they start the Cervidil. That should get things moving in the right direction. If I haven't had Connor by Tuesday morning, then I will be given Pitocin, which should further help to induce labor.
Once we check in at Northside Hospital tomorrow, we're not leaving without a baby boy. And I'm not talking about kidnapping. I'm talking about OUR baby boy. Connor Dennis Martin. That is the exciting part. The not-so-exciting part is that once we check in at Northside Hospital tomorrow, we're not leaving without me pushing something the size of a watermelon out of my whoo-ha.
Maybe it would be better if he made an escape through my mouth.
