39 Weeks and 2 Year Molars

And no progress to report of at my appointment today with my OB. So I'm now feeling as though I'm on the clock. I am going to hang out in my uncomfortably pregnant state until at least as far as my due date next Friday. If at my next appointment on Friday I have still not made any progress my options will become more limited. As long as baby and I are still doing well I may be able to hang out until 41 weeks. If I haven't made any progress on my own by that point, I'm looking at a repeat c-section. My doctor won't do an induction if the conditions are not favorable, for a few different reasons.

Right now I am just feeling down right conflicted. I want to give my body every chance to get me to a vaginal delivery, yet I'd rather have a scheduled c-section than another emergency one if things don't move along as they should during labor. I just don't know what to do at this point other than take it one day at a time until Friday.

I'm still hopeful that Andrew makes the decision for me at some point this week!

In other news, Philip is teething again. This time he is working on his two year molars. He's been drooling like a mad man and running a low grade fever for a couple of days now. Last night he had the most disturbed night of sleep he's had in a long time. It took him over two hours to fall asleep, and he woke up every hour and a half to two hours during the night. The strangest part is he didn't wake up crying or upset, he was just in there talking to himself. Bizarre! Needless to say, I didn't get much sleep either, but that's nothing new these days!

Today he was pretty tired from his long, sleepless night and started asking to go "nigh nigh" even before bed time had rolled around. He didn't have any interest in eating dinner, so we tried giving him some cereal with bananas. A little distraction by Barney and he managed to eat most of it. We put him to bed with some more Tylenol and he hasn't made a peep since we took him up. Poor baby! I'll be relieved once he finally has all of his baby teeth and doesn't have to deal with this discomfort anymore!
