Bebeluna - I'd love it if my baby came in the next 3 days!!!
Good luck with the moving. I did it very pregnant once and it was awful!!
For our conversation starter questions....
I am planning a waterbirth , but not thinking about positions, not even totally stuck on waterbirth, I'll go with whatever feels right.
My BH are not painful. They are becoming stronger, and sometimes are a bit crampy, but no pain. I cant wait for the pain because it means its that much closer! LOL
I NEVER noticed bh with any of my other pregnancies. This is my 5th full term pregnancy.
About fear/anxiety- I was fine until very recently. The other night I was in bed, just about dozing off, when all of a sudden I was jolted awake and panicked as this thought popped into my head " OMG, a BABY is going to come out my VAGINA"!!!!!!!!! LOL
I dont want to be scared, I just want to let go and let it come and have no worries. Trying to keep pushing any fears away.
I am up about 6 times to pee in the middle of the nigt. It sucks.I have to roll my huge belly out of bed, waddle to the bathroom, then get comforable all over again. Then I need to go again an hour later! I did realize if I get any bigger I wont be able to wipe myslef!! LOL
Great questions by the way!
Now onto my appt update -
GBS- Yay! One less thing to worry about.
2cm 50% - eh... better than I was last pregnancy later on .I know, I know, it means nothing. but its better than nothing...
Only gained 1/2 lb last week. Hmm, end of pregnancy slow down?
And are you all ready for this part?? My dr sid next week, if I want to, we can discuss setting an induction date for the following week(39 weeks). If I want to, I can be induced then, If I want to waot, thats fine too.
So I ask his induction method. Cytotec. Yikes. he explains all about it, he does oral dosing, not vaginal, he doesnt see any risks in it other than too much stimulation.
Now this freaked me out. I have never used cytotec, never even heard about it except online. But most o what I heard has been bad.
I dont know why cytotec =BAD, but pitocin is aceptable to me. Isnt pitocin and cytotec both risky, and after doing some quick reading, seems the risks are the same for both. So how did I get it in my head that pitocin is acceptable??? I dont know.
So... I dont want to be induced. But you know, I see why so many people are. At this point in pregnancy, so fat and uncomfortable, etc, etc, it seems so tempting.
I talked with hubby about it, and he jsut said"whats the rush anyway, just wait". Yes dear, I know. I bet I will go into labor before 39 weeks anyway, so it will be a non issue.
So to avoid the issue at my next appt, I will tell the dr I will think about induction once I get to my due date, but dont really need to consider it ahead of time.
Whew, sorry for the novel..
