Had my appt at 1, everything is going great still. My BP is good, weight is good, baby is great. Funny, last week he was snoozing his heart rate was 130's this week he was WIDE awake (you could see it, my stomach never stopped moving) and his heart rate was 160's. She offered to check my cervix but I declined. I mean, she could tell me I'm 4cm and I could sit here waiting for a week or she could tell me I'm 0cm and I could go home depressed and have him that night so it really just doesn't matter to know. She agree'd. Next appt is next Wednesday... we'll do an ultrasound to check fluid levels and have a look-see at the placenta and of course him. Then she said she'll want to do an exam for sure then, so that's fine. I told her about the spotting I was having and she got soo excited and said, "oh usually 24-48 hrs later we see moms in labor", and I laughed and said... it was Sunday I seen it first. Her whole expression went down and she was like...okay maybe not in your case then . So then I'm packing up my stuff and she's like well you could try some things at home and I'm like okay what and this is where it became what I didn't want to hear.........................sex. Blah! I can't even begin to tell you how much that does NOT sound appealing. I'll have to REALLY think about that one . I don't know if I want to go into labor that bad lol!

Oh yeah and his head is very very low, which explains why I feel like I've got a watermelon trying to pop out of my body lol!

well, that is great that he is so low! That usually means your labor will be shorter- the decent is often what is SUPER time consuming

good luck with the sex! Make him give you a foot/ankle massage first (doubly good, b/c there are accupressure points there) to put you in the mood, or at least to destress ands relax you.

Sounds like everything is going great.

My sister is due tomorrow (she is 5cm and 100% effaced but not in labor yet). I suggested she and her DH have sex and her response was similar to yours. She said "it's totally out of the question...talk about uncomfortable."

I'm all for the sex, DH is not

I like the foot and ankle massage idea!

I hope baby decides to come on its own soon! I wouldn't be into DTD either.

It's not the most fun thing at the end, but it can be very helpful! Especially if there is an orgasm. I mean for you of course.

Well it does sound like a good appointment!
I don't blame you about the sex, it was very uncomfortable for me in the 3rd trimester, but maybe its worth a shot? I did the eggplant parmesan and went into labor the next day - could try that too? Good luck with everything. it will be soon!!!

lol, well, even if you could just have an orgasm, it might bring on contractions. Your doctor seems so easy to work with, that's great!

Good appt. I felt the same way about sex with Emma. She was always so low & towards the end her head was right there. Made for a fairly short labor & only 2 pushes

Yeah the benefit of low babies is a quick exit. Both of mine were really fast coming out. Joe took about 20 minutes of pushing the first 15 was not working because his head wasn't exactly in the right position so they had to turn him a little then he came right out! With Jayden 6pushes and he was out! So I hope to have that go quickly again! I feel sooooooooo bad for women who push for hours, it's exhausting!!!!!!

It won't be long now Rose! I know what you mean about the pushing when they are high. I pushed Bryson for 3 hours and only 7 minutes with Emory. That is a HUGE difference!

lol we tried sex twice when I was due-ish and I'm not even sure if it worked or not.. we tried a few things because I was paranoid to go late. (Who isn't?) I totally know how you feel! I would maybe try it once and if it doesn't even give some little contractions I guess you could just try something else lol. (It's the semen and [your] orgasm contractions that do the trick specifically.. You probably know, but I didn't! So, if you do pull out it probably won't be helping much! TMI I'm sorry..)
