UpdateI went to my Dr appt today with dh and dd. Today is my due date by the way - 40 weeks. She checked me and said I'm still the same, no progress. Then she said, "Well, let's go ahead and get you an appt for Monday to get this baby out!" So I said, "Actually, I don't mind waiting another week or two. I don't really want to be induced if I can help it."
She looked at me like I was crazy for a second. I don't think she hears that very often. : ) But then she said, "I can let you go for another week but not two. The longest I can let you wait is 41w 6d." Then she told me it was because of having less amniotic fluid and a higher chance of meconium. I just looked at her and nodded and smiled.
So I have an appt for next Wednesday. If the baby doesn't come by then, she will want to schedule me for an induction sometime before 41w 6d. I just think it is so funny that she set the limit like that, like hitting 42 weeks is magically going to make the baby poop!! :LOL
I hope that the baby comes on her own before then! I really would love to have her come now on her own, and I really would love to avoid the inducing. Anyone have tips on how to help her come on her own? I really need her to get lower, she is head down but not dropped. Anyone have great tips on getting her to drop and engage? I've been walking and the DR recommended sex again. It's just a little difficult at this point to get in a position that feels like the "deposit" is near the cervix.
