Glad that is over....as I was a little nervous that something would be wrong and the words: "medically induced" would be thrown around....

But, the great news is that everything looks good. My guy still has lots of amniotic fluid, the placenta looks good, and his heartbeat is strong. So--- I am fine to wait as long as he needs!

I am only 40w and 6d.....I might be changing my tune should Sun/Monday arrive though-- as I am not sure they will let me go past 42 weeks, so I would start seriously working on my natural induction techniques then!

We shall see what happens at my MW appt. tomorrow.....(today I only met with an u/s nurse at a maternal/fetal medicine place)....

Glad it went well! I go for mine tomorrow. I met with my midwife today and we had the dreaded "you can't go past 42 weeks" discussion. So she loaded me up with stuff to do! EPO, some homeopathy stuff and castor oil in the a.m.

Yeah, I saw my midwives on monday, baby looks good, I look good, everything is good, however, they said if i make it one more week they will want to start herbs and go from there. Not bad compared to some, seeing as how I am now 11+ days late.

So far my midwives have only recommended sex and acupuncture. I'm going for my second chiro appointment this week too.

Stay strong ladies! My mom keeps reminding me that I was born 15 days late (a natural, med. free birth).....although that was 34 years ago, and perhaps "they" let you go longer then!
