40 week roll call! - Page 4
congratulations new baby mamas!
Trish, it's awesome that your twins are 40 weeks! Good luck with the birth and I hope it happens any day now.
AFM I had what will be my last MW appt yesterday. We had a biophysical profile first which baby scores 8/8 on, and I have plenty of amniotic fluid. Things seem to look good aside from the whole baby-still-on-the-inside part. My midwide suggested trying EPO so I picked up a bottle last night and tried 1 capsule vaginally at night. I had some crampy contractions while trying to get to sleep, and sat around on my ball for half an hour in the hopes they would go somewhere before succumbing to tiredness and going to sleep ... nothing else happening.
Tonight we have plans to see a movie and after that I will try stimulation with my breast pump. I'd like to get the hang of using it anyway so it seems there's no downside.
I'm scheduled to get cervial ripening on Thursday and induced next Friday (%@#$ Thursday due date and holiday weekend!) so really hoping babe makes an appearance on their own before then. Just trying to relax and be at peace with the babe.
I'm very suspicious my baby is waiting until the full moon also, I bet there will be a lot of babes born then. I really thought I was having a Taurus, but unless it happens today I think that ship has sailed. I thought I would have been more patient since I know a due date means little, but only 4 days past mine I'm feeling ready too. Trying to enjoy and wanting to meet baby. Also I've had terrible back pain for the last few days. SOmething I thought was a sign up labor but It might just be from being so gigantic.
Sending good birthing vibes your way ladies
kimble- you still around?
