Last days before baby...

I consider myself a patient person. As a labor & delivery nurse, I always got annoyed when people delivered unnecessarily before their due date. The "I'm sick of being pregnant, uncomfortable and tired of waiting for my baby" syndrome. I thought I'd never be that person. But sure enough, by 37 weeks I was googling "ways to naturally induce labor" and spending hours walking and bouncing on an exercise ball. I ended up delivering 1 week early, who knows if it was the things I did or not, but looking back I wouldn't have done anything differently. I spent those last days read parent books, went on date nights with my hubby and stayed busy to keep myself as distracted from the waiting game as possible.
