How did it go today? I didn't realize you'd been doing acupuncture already. Are they using electrical stimulators, too? I had that done with DD2 and went into labor about 12 hours later, though we'll never be sure if it was coincidence or not, you know? That baby must be pretty comfortable in there!

Well...the BPP was not that reassuring unfortunately. He is ok for now but is starting to show some signs of distress.. The fluid is borderline and so is his movements (which when I am honest with myself, are not where they should be.)  The midwife was pleased with my contractions, though a sweep is still not a possibility because I am still so closed and high.  I had contractions most of the night and into the morning thanks to the breast pump.  I went to whole foods but all they have is black cohosh not the blue or pennyroyal...but I am starting to take that now and will pump again and see if the contractions get stronger...so, I am going to try for an induction tomorrow and hoping that some progress tonight will at least let them try the Foley balloon.      I am trying to be optimistic but also at peace with it if I have to get a c-section.  It is not what I had hoped for but either way I need my boy healthy and strong.   I have literally done everything I can to get this little guy moving toward the light, now it is in fate's hands...thanks for the support y'all!

Judah Samuel is here!  It was not the birth of my dreams and did after a somewhat successful start to labor end in another c-section but I am recovering well and he is a gorgeous 8 lb 11 oz bundle of cuteness.  I will fill you in with the birth story and details later...Thanks for your love and support all!
