I saw my doc today, I'll see her weekly now til the birth. We did cultures today and she checked my cervix while she was down there, and it's posterior, thick and closed, and baby's head is high. And I was just posting about being in denial about having a baby!
Maybe that's why! I figured it was a little soon for anything to be happening with me, as I went 41 weeks with DS. (I'm 36 now.)
I did tell her I was going to stay home as long as possible, even if my water breaks. She said if it broke now, she would be worried about a prolapse since the baby's head is pretty high up. I reassured her I knew what to do if there was a presenting part and I would most definitely be on the phone with her and getting help! Besides, she broke my water with DS and told me he had one tough bag of waters... I'm probably eating slightly more protein this time around so I'm not too worried about that happening before it should. I told her I would be more likely to get into a good labor pattern if I could relax at home, rather than sitting in the hospital waiting, and she agreed.
But the great, awesome, happy news is that my blood pressure is excellent (was on BP meds at 31 weeks last time), it's better than it is when I'm not pregnant, and that is great... it will take a lot of stress off me at the end I'm sure!! I also mentioned my hip/pelvic pain, and since she is an osteopath, she checked my alignment and it's all fine - nothing out of place. Gave me some stretches/exercises to do. At least my back doesn't hurt on top of everything else!
