Nothing exciting here. I had my parallel care midwife do another membrane sweep yesterday.... and got nothing out of that. Well, she did say I was REALLY GOOD 3cm... so I did make a teeny bit of progress between Monday and Tuesday. My home birth midwife is coming by today to do one more membrane sweep today. I might also try some castor oil in the next few hours.
My good friend/doula/birth assistant is going out of town Saturday through Thursday. I'm hoping that little miss Sage Opal makes her debut before then. I have a couple other friend/doula/birth assistants who would support me fabulously through birth . . . but this is who I've been planning to birth with!
I went for a walk yesterday evening and felt really achy, crampy and weepy... I shuffled into the house after my walk and flopped on the couch and cried a little while DH rubbed my feet. Then we watched a Louis C.K. stand up show and went to bed. I was really hoping to wake up in labor... but instead I got a good, cozy nights sleep.
And DH's family is starting to call daily "just to see!!" ugh. I feel like changing my voicemail greeting to something like "If we haven't called YOU we haven't had a baby, and no we, or my midwife don't know when it's going to be. So if you want to talk about something else, or take me out to lunch, please call back or leave a message!"
