Had my 36 week appt today and the midwife was Very pleased to see me still pregnant If I make it 4 more days not only have I passed the point my last 2 babies were born at, but the one before that also
The contractions seem to be doing at least a lil something. Last week I was a 'fingertip' dilated, today a "loose" 1cm. She said she could probably fit 2 fingers but she didn't want to disturb anything. I had her check to make sure I wasn't leaking, and I'm not - so that's a good thing Told her about the contrax and diarrhea, she said she really has doubts that I'll make it to my appt next Tues. I'll see if I can prove her wrong lol.
She also said that if my water does break (which it tends to do before labor) she's ok with me waiting it out at home this time for up to 12 hours trying to get labor going. Last baby I had to go in sooner because he was up really high and she worried about the cord prolapsing. This baby though - his head is way down there and she said the only place that head is going is out so no worries about the cord. Otherwise - she said come in after contrax are 5 mins apart for an hour.
Guess that's about it. Oh and I gained back 1 of the 3 lbs I lost in the last 2 weeks.
