Interesting turn to the conversation here LOL
My bowels have been about the same as always. With DD i pooped non stop during the first half of labour, so i'm expecting that again i guess.
My appointment with MW is tomorrow... i really think i'm going to get a membrane sweep... i'm 42 weeks tomorrow so i feel like i've waited long enough to justify maybe a little help. I don't know for sure though.
It's not that invasive i guess, and it can only help, and it won't do a lot if i'm not ready anyway.
I feel apprehensive because i wanted to just go into labour on my own this time. Maybe if i wait until 43 weeks it will happen, but maybe not. I don't totally mind going overdue, but it's hard to fight feelings of it not being normal
I'll talk to my MW tomorrow. I think i'm more impatient this time, and there's no real reason for it. I actually feel pretty good.
Maybe baby won't be born yet when the inlaws stay friday night LOL.
Symptoms the same, sometimes for a few hours i'll almost dare to hope that it's labour, yet it never is
Baby is still backing out f my pelvis all the time. When it's low, stuff picks up quickly, lots of productive cervical stuff happens.. and then it backs out and starts twisting and changing sides. I need to trust that the baby knows the right position and is working on it. It's usually on the right with it's head on or beside my right hip
A vent: feel free to skip this LOL
My family is stressing me out. It's just bad timing for other people to be going through crap and sorry for being selfish but i'm the wrong person to phone crying to, i just don't have the capacity to deal with other ppl's stress right now (and esp when it's the same issues and stresses i've heard about for like 15 years) my dad is mentally ill and my mom and younger sibling suffer. They are broke, they go to the foodbank, etc. I help as much as i can, i just need a break right now. I feel burdened and i don't want it to spill over and make me feel negatively about having my mom at the birth, because we are really close and i need her.... ugh.
Anyway, it can't be long now... we'll all have our little sweet babies in our arms soon
