hey there ladies.
so, might be TMI, but since this is a pregnancy due date club and all i can't imagine it actually is.
i awoke this morning to some lovely blood tinged mucos when i went to the bathroom. i've had cramps off and on for the past couple of weeks. but, at my doctor's appt this morning there were some contractions on the NST (though i didn't really notice them) and my doc reminded me that the bloody show could mean things will happen in a day or two...or that it could still be a while. <sigh>
since i've got a looming induction date of next monday i'm encouraged by the fact that something is going on. my next appt is friday for another NST and if she can i'll have the doc strip my membranes. if that doesn't work i'll try castor oil on saturday or sunday. she told me to take 2oz!!!! does that sound like a lot to anyone who has done it before?
the doc checked my cervix this morning and she said it's open at the bottom but still closed at the top. and then she reminded me that just means things are going on and it could be today, tomorrow, or next week! i like how flexible she is. it's reassuring.
