Defining the intersection between listening and living

40 weeks 4 days

So yesterday was our OB appointment at this point we are a few days past our due date and my wife becomes increasingly uncomfortable as the days progress. The appointment lasted almost two hours and amounted to the doctors telling us that the baby is doing well however my wife is not progressing very much. I have been supportive throughout the this entire experience and while my wife is stubbornly insistent on natural birth it is becoming increasingly apparent that if she does not deliver soon she will be induced. We have another appointment for a stress test and Ultrasound observations on friday which I am hopeful may go a little better but how knows. At this point we just wan the baby to come. While I keep telling myself she will in her own time it is hard to see my wife so uncomfortable. But I guess they say good things come to those who wait and patience is a virtue.
