Judah Samuel is here!  It was not the birth of my dreams and did after a somewhat successful start to labor end in another c-section but I am recovering well and he is a gorgeous 8 lb 11 oz bundle of cuteness.  I will fill you in with the birth story and details later...Thanks for your love and support all!
Well...the BPP was not that reassuring unfortunately. He is ok for now but is starting to show some signs of distress.. The fluid is borderline and so is his movements (which when I am honest with myself, are not where they should be.)  The midwife was pleased with my contractions, though a sweep is still not a possibility because I am still so closed and high.  I had contractions most of the night and into the morning thanks to the breast pump.  I went to whole foods...
Thanks Mama,  If the BBP looks good tomorrow morning I am going to the health food store to get the herbs and will try tomorrow then a fourth acupuncture induction Friday morning.  I pumped a little while ago and am having some contractions so that is a bit encouraging...I would like to pump again and see if it sticks but honestly I am so tired I think I better just wait til the morning.  Thanks again for your help...sending you baby releasing energy so that your bundle...
I did read the article and they are definitely using the first measure. Unfortunately, today it was low again and they want to schedule a c section for Saturday. My cervix is still closed, not effaced, an baby's head is still not engaged so the likelihood o an induction working is slim to none...I am taking what they are saying as it comes and def thinking of the article and some words from midwives but also know that if my levels are low and I have been drinking like...
Still pregnant, still doing acupuncture, still EPO...I can't even get a membrane sweep because my cervix is still too closed.  41+ 4 and low fluid the midwives at the hospital are looking to schedule an induction but I am still trying to keep them at bay....
Another NST and AFI passed!  Another few days to hope that this boy gets ready fast.  I am now also pretty calm with the whole thing as the ultrasound tech today did two readings.  The first one she said my level was 7.1 but "felt like I was low" so did it again and got a 5.2...wtf?  Totally subjective...baby boy is good, I am good, we are waiting!  The midwives are being pretty patient but it is a hospital so they also are trying to prepare me if they want to induce at...
Going for another round of tests today and if they are good I think I can keep them at bay until more tests on Friday.  Send me full fluid vibes!
Thanks to the ladies that replied!  I drank and drank and drank and my levels went up enough to give me a few more days.  I have to go get checked again tomorrow and am trying to drink and lie on my left side and have some electrolytes.  I am feeling more and more like I will try the induction and see where it goes if it comes to that point.  I have been DTD, using the breast pump, using EPO like crazy but if the cervix won't ripen I am not sure that the induction will...
So, yesterday I started off my day with acupuncture with 'induction specialist'  in my area...I was optimistic because I had some serious pressure in my cervix/vagina .  I then went to the midwife , hopefully for a membrane sweep.  Unfortunately she could not do the sweep because my cervix was still completely closed:( So frustrated..then I go for my NST and ultrasound because of my history of low fluid ( which ended with a long induction and eventual c-section with my...
Is anyone else out there a complete, emotional basket-case?  I feel like I have PMS from hell...like when I was 15 and couldn't control my emotions at all...I am crying at commercials, picking fights with the hubby, and seriously losing my patience with DD who is 2 and a half....I cried so hard yesterday that my eyes were red and puffy the rest of the day.  I am feeling better today after 11 hours of sleep but it's only 8:30 am so we will see.  I have a chiro appt. this...
