*But not patiently.
So here we sit after yet another visit with the midwife, with no baby yet born and our hopes of breaking waters tomorrow as an induction shattered. She's not dilated enough to even attempt to break waters, and we're running low on time. Financially speaking my wife is the sole bread-winner of our household right now (as I JUST finished school and finding a job in this area, in this economy, is not going well to say the least!) and as such she only has a finite amount of time before she must, of necessity, return to work.
She's already been on leave for one week (after working 3 days PAST her due date), and every day that passes is one less day she gets to spend with the baby on the outside before having to return to work.
So, we've contacted a local OB with whom we have an appt. on Monday for an initial visit/consult to possibly go in and induce in a hospital rather than birth at home. It's not ideal for us, but we're running low on options and it's the lesser of the unideal choices we face at this point.
Prayers don't work. "Positive energy" is BS. But I sure wouldn't mind some sympathy and some other folks (even internet strangers) hoping with us that things move along naturally some time in the next few days so we can finally meet our newest little girl.
Thanks for putting up with my little vent. That's all for now.
