I left home on July 23 and it’s been more than a month since I spent my days in this little room… waiting for the baby and still working (ugh).

I was not imprisoned nor hidden. I am at my in-laws’ house. They told us they prefer me delivering the baby here than at our own home where only me and hubby and our new household help will be taking care of everything. So I am here.
… at 39 weeks now and will be giving birth anytime soon.
The last time I went to my OB (I had a new OB by the way), she gave me Evening Primrose Oil (Eveprim) to be taken thrice a day until the onset of labor as she said she wants me to go into labor before the due date as the baby is now 6 to 7 lbs.
DSC_0063Of course, that is also a relief on my side as I don’t want to deliver a big baby and of course, I am excited to meet the little one now.
It’s been 4 days since I have taken the Evening Primrose Oil but I haven’t seen any preliminary signs of labor yet. In some forums I‘ve read, they went into labor in just a matter of 3 days after taking the supplement (yes, it’s a supplement, not a medication), but of course, others say it took them 7 days. Ok, then. I am hopeful that this will put me into labor earlier than Sept 9 or Sept 10.

The anxiety of waiting has lead me to dreams of holding a baby boy, dreams of tsunami, dreams of giving birth already only to find out in the morning that I still have that baby bump. But of course, I am wiling to wait. I know I’d be able to finally meet my little one in a few days from now.
… and I pray everything will be all right.
