I wore this yesterday to walk IKEA with Leo and try to get baby a little closer to coming out. No dice, yet. I’m wearing a variation of this outfit now, for my weekly dr appointment. I can’t wear my Birkenstocks anymore because all my pairs are narrow footbed and my feet have definitely widened this last week; they were becoming very uncomfortable to walk in, sadly. I hope it’s not permanent!!!
Update after the dr appointment: I’m going to be induced on Wednesday. The non-stress test today was pretty lackluster; he barely got three movements in. It was touch and go for a little while that we’d head straight to L&D from the appointment but at the last second the little guy moved enough to satisfy the doctor, so we have an induction scheduled later this week.
I’m not going to lie, I’m nervous about it, and not super-excited about the cascade of interventions that seem inevitable at this point, but outcomes matter, and at my age it is more consequential and complicated for both me and the baby to go past the due date (which is Friday). I consider myself incredibly lucky to have gone this far without any complications or problems at all so I’m hoping things will continue this way and I’ll be able to share more about our beautiful boy in my Friday follow-up this week! Or next week, let’s be honest haha…
