Pumpkin seeds: I'm sorry you aren't sleeping. That must have been really dissapointing to be risked out of MW care. I am hoping not to be risked out of the birthing centre so I really sympathise.
Shershine: happy birthing
to you. You can do it!
Mamaroni: I'm sending you
too. I hope things pick up for you soon.
I am back from my MW appointment and I feel pretty positive about things overall. The blood sugar results aren't back yet but she wasn't worried about it since my last blood sugar result was fine and all my urine tests have been negative. The baby's head is now 2-3/5ths engaged
. So I reckon my pelvis can take this baby no problem! I am also glad that I was right about what I was feeling at the weekend (lots of movement and pressure on my perineum) and that it was the baby moving down.
Things are getting pretty exciting now. I was also quite amused because the baby disliked the MW checking for its head and did a massive kick and then moved out of the way of the sonicaid whilst she was cheking the heartbeat. Clearly he/she was in need of some privacy today
The only negative was that she suggested that the Obs may not "allow" me to have the baby at the birthing centre. I don't really see why that should be since it's only one floor below the delivery suite. Hopefully I will have the wherewithall to argue my case when I see them next week.
