She had a doctor appointment yesterday and was 4cm and 90% effaced. So they agreed to induce her this morning. The induction started 11 hours ago. I thought for sure she would have had her baby by now. I hope everything is going ok.
So feel free to totally ignore me. I have this friend from high school who is pregnant for the first time. She is just now 39 weeks. Since 36 weeks, maybe earlier, she has been complaining EVERY single day about the fact that she hasn't had the baby yet. And every week before her doctor appointment she says she is hoping for good news and that the doctor will tell her she is in labor. The thing is, she isn't having contractions, she isn't dilating. I don't understand why she expects to be told she is magically in labor. I really don't think she gets it. Ok so that's all fine and good. Whatever.
But she is constantly asking for advice. And there are a bunch of us that are telling her, baby will come when it comes. Distract yourself, you are going to make yourself crazy if you keep trying so hard to start labor and expecting to give birth every single day like this. But it's like she is just ignoring us. I know I just need to ignore her at this point but geez! Today her post said, hoping I get admitted at my doctor appointment tomorrow. Her doctor has already told her he won't induce before 41 weeks and she is only 39 weeks. I told her, if you aren't contracting, they aren't going to admit you. It just boggles my mind how in the world she doesn't get it yet. Like how does she not know that she will KNOW when she is in labor. You don't just walk into the doctor and the baby just falls out without contractions, well for most people at least.
Ok rant over. Bash away if you must. It's just getting on my nerves and I had to vent so I won't go off on her or something.
