My pregnant friends are stressing me out.
2.5 years after having Maddox, I've learned a lot that I wish I had known before he was born. And now I see and hear friends going about their births like OK DOC WHATEVER YOU SAY.. and I just want to grab them and shake them and tell them to wake up... BUT.. I can't. It's not my place to push it on them. Is it? Other than giving advice in the beginning, I don't think there is an easy way to say something like that. I can't be like YOU ARE MAKING A MISTAKE. :[
Friend's FB status: "We have redefined the term "mamas boy" when your doctor looks at you and says "I promise I won't let u go past 41 weeks" may not be a good sign...!"
To which I replied: "Why won't he let you go past 41 weeks?"
And she said: "It puts the baby at risk to go longer! Idk what the risks are but there are some! Maybe being too big??"
Next, one of my close friends went into early labor last night. I was texting them frantically at 4am because I'm SO excited. She went to the hospital & they sent her back home because she wasn't ready yet. A few minutes ago... around 2pm.. I get a text from him saying: "We're on our way to the hospital now. Since her labor is so slow, they are going to induce her today."
:[ Ugh. It just makes me sad.
EDIT: I think I overreacted a little bit about that text because I was cranky about the other girl's FB status. I actually just started crying because I'm so excited for them.
