I'm still here. 40+2 today and still relatively comfortable. My folks were in town for a few days (hoping for a glimpse of baby no doubt) but it didn't happen. We all went to Longwood Gardens yesterday and I walked around for 3+ hours, only sitting down once. I had BH contractions the entire time and globs of mucous later in the day. I was so hopeful!! But today- nothing
I had a midwife appt this morning and I've gained SIX pounds in one week. SIX!! I was alarmed, and she took my BP immediately, but it was still normal 106/70 with no swelling anywhere, no protein or sugar in the urine, I feel normal, etc. She said she could not be concerned when everything was so normal. So who knows? She asked if I wanted to be checked, or a membrane sweep and I refused.
I later visited a friend and she did some massage/reflexology and had the baby jumping all over the place. Right now I'm a bit crampy but nothing exciting. I'd love to have the babe this weekend to avoid the cascade of non-stress tests that would start next week. Here's to hoping!
