Hey Laura. I also have an appointment tomorrow. I also started out "very UC" and things have turned conventional.... I think it's impossible to do prenatal care any other way. I sure am trying, but man.
My baby seems to go REALLY low, like all squished up in the bottom part of my uterus but then I'll get a part right up against my rib for a while. I hope it's just the body stretching out and not the head moving up and down. My heartburn is pretty much gone, but a do get a bout every few days. I think it's mostly when I don't eat though, which has been happening a lot lately because I've been staying in bed for hours and hours and hours!
If you do decide to have an internal, it wouldn't hurt to ask about your pea garden ROFL I would GUESS scar tissue - have you ever felt it before, or just now because it's getting thinner/softer or something? And why would you have scar tissue? I'm not getting any internals - I don't want any disappointment or ANY reason for anyone to start even THINKING induction or anything like that. I'm in a good enough headspace now that knowing I'm progressing isn't going to help anything. I figure my 5 hours of contractions the other night had to do something!
Good luck at your appointment. I hope it's fun! Mine will be going over details of my birth plan, asking the doctor not to do anything between the baby being born and the placenta. I just want that time to be quiet and peaceful.
