9 days overdue!

I'm 41 weeks and 2 days now. Just had my checkup today at the hospital (which lasted 5 1/2 hrs long!) and everything is fine. Baby's heartbeat is good, amniotic fluid is clear and sufficient, contractions are not regular nor strong. It looks like my little Laetitia is happily nesting in my belly and not ready to come out! My next appointment is 2 days later and if everything remains the same, the midwife said that they will probably induce on 30th or 31st March. I will be almost 42 weeks by then. I've tried many different ways to naturally bring on the labour but nothing works. I guess the little one is taking her own sweet time and teaching mummy to be patient.

I'm starting to feel a little stressed about probably having to be induced and yet at the same time I can't wait for this little one to be in my arms too. Everyone (friends and family) has been asking if baby is here and everytime I have to explain to them that we are still waiting and are trying not be to induced. Well, I think the midwife did a membrane sweep today and from what I read, it should bring on labour within 48 hours. We will see how that works. I mean I have already tried many other methods to naturally bring on labour but nothing worked so far.

And the best part is, we are also waiting for her to be out and registered before buying her a SNCF enfant+ card for getting the train tickets to go for Nico and Anne's wedding and her airticket for the flight back to Singapore. Looks like even before she is here, she already has trips planned for and obviously we cannot buy her tickets without her being officially in this world! :p

Baby Laetitia, come on out soon and travel the globe with papa and mummy!
