Help! I'm a little freaked out b/c I'm 40 weeks today. Baby is still up really high. I'm 1-2 cm, had my membranes swept twice this week, lots of on and off cramping, but that's it. I go back to m/w Tues. If no change at that point, we'll likely be discussing more invasive measures. 1st baby was big, born sunnyside up, and had a BAD shoulder dystocia. This baby looks a bit bigger so far and is now 1 week farther along. Midwife is hoping for spontaneous labor before then, but I am braced for some big decisions next week. Given my experience with my first, I am comfortable with taking a more medical approach if need be. However, in the meantime I am wondering if there is anything I can do to get baby to engage.
Baby has been head down and laying on my left side for many weeks, though I think he/she often switches back and forth between LOA and ROA. As of yesterday's appt, midwife did not think baby was posterior, but went for an ultrasound and the tech said the baby was face up (though I don't completely trust her b/c she did not know what posterior meant when I used the term)
Any suggestions would be much appreciated.
