I'm starting to lose it. I really have been crying a ridiculous amount.
I'm not sure why I feel so down. I'm guessing it's entirely hormonal.
I might take a homeopathic remedy to encourage labour tomorrow. AP, I was going to ask you your opinion. Funny that you should pop in. So, what do you think? Is it true what my midwives say, that the remedy will only "take" if I'm good and ready?
My 41-week appt. wasn't as terrible as I thought it would be. I said that I would schedule a NST for early next week and they said that they would (1) give the hospital a later due date, (2) give me the option of doing a doppler exam during contractions if I still feel ultra-confident about the health of the babe and (3) discuss my case with their on-call dr. and, if all seems good, argue for my right to continue with midwifery care.
The only problem is that I can't make the phone call to schedule the NST because I can't stop crying. Do you think my dh can do it on my behalf? Or would that be too weird?
On a less depressing note, do you all have baby stalkers? I have several acquaintances and old friends who are gathering like buzzards to descend on my baby when and if I should have one. This group has some overlap with but is definitely different from the group of people who are interested in pregnancy as a spectator sport. In some cases, I am happy to have the excuse of a baby to renew or deepen a friendship, but in others, these are people I was happy to be rid of and now they are back! I don't want them to drop by. Inevitably, they bring gifts, which you have to thank them for, extending contact, etc., etc. Am I the only one with this problem? It might be unique. I have trouble getting rid of people I don't really like but don't necessarily dislike.
