I had my 40 week midwife appointment today and as per usual every thing looks great! Heart rate 130, measuring "big" at 43 weeks, gained 3 pounds but have my first ever swelling so considering it to be water weight, and blood pressure great!
Last week the midwife had offered to check me and strip membranes and I declined. This week I was both pleased and frustrated that this midwife(Debbie for those that delivered or are planning to deliver at the North Shore Birth Center) did not offer. I didn't ask for her to but if she had offered I probably would have had her. My support people will be able to be there for the delivery with more ease and without missing work on a Monday-Wednesday lol so they are all cheering me on in getting the show on the road. However after two previous inductions for medical reasons I am really wanting the natural, normal, healthy pregnancy and delivery. I want my body and his to decide when labor starts!! So no stripping for me.
I scheduled the next appointment for next Tuesday which just so happens to be my late sister and her daughter's birthday! We will see if he stays put that long.
