So Im now 2wks 1day past my edd, ( that in its self is so confusing because I thought they gave me a due date of oct 6th but on my charts its the 8th, that is a good thing though and will play into my favor) and we really have few signs of a little one on the way.
I had a nst/afi on friday to check amnotic levels and placenta conditioning as well as baby. Baby is perfect, he really loves it in there
my amniotic levels are lower than normal( uh duh hes been in there a bit) and my placenta is deteriating, or showing its age the doc says. This whole experience in itself was werid, I havnt been to the hospital ever during this pregnancy and now Im in here with all these high risk pregnancy docs, just werid.
So the doc comes back and says we need to get baby out now and we need a hospital birth and blah blah blah
. I ask what immenent danger my son is in if we dont have him today and of course the doc says some crap like natural birth in africa with no doctors is because they dont have any but here in america
again more blah blah blah. So he really cant say anything except baby needs to come soon.
So of course now thanks to the doc my dp is worried about the baby and me, he wants me to be supportied and have the birth that I want but he also wants the baby home and safe like yesterday.
On friday after the nst we went to my acupunturist and she did some work to encourage baby to come. Nothing happened, then today we went to midwife and she scrapped my membbrains ( ugh just the thought and the word ugh, reminds me of nails on a chalk board) so a littl cramping and some minor blood very minor. I did start to loose my mucus plug on thursday though so that has still been coming. Anyway then we came home and I napped and then did 70 minutes on the breast pump. Some little contractions now but nothing.
And my midwife wants me in at 10 am to see what the next plan of action is. This wouldnt be all that big of a deal but A) dp is very worried, and B) I have to be in active labor by Friday the 28th or my midwife cant see me anymore. A rule of going 3 wks over I guess.
So what do I do? How else can I get him to come. I just want to hold him and love him. I walk lots everyday, eat spicey food, have sex, talk to the baby and encourage him to come, keep the stress levels down. Now what?
Sorry this is so long, I guess I just needed to get this all out. Thanks mamas from a first timer!
