She offered to sweep the membranes, which I declined. I told her I am fine to wait for baby to be ready (which I wish she was...but, she isn't....and I am not into artificial help). So she was surprised and said most women beg for it, or want to schedule inductions. Yeah, maybe, but like I told her, I am not even a candidate for pitocin induction, so I am cool to keep on waiting.
So my BP was fantastic. The baby's heart rate was good, I lost two pounds (YAY!!!!!!!) and all looks good. She asked me how big did I think the baby was. I told her 8 1/2 - 9 pounds, she agreed.

So if nothing happens between now and Monday, they want me to go to the hospital (1/2 hr away) to have a NST and AFI , which I'll think about. Maybe. If I feel like it. I mean, she's good, I'm good and she'll come out when she is ready. Do you know anyone still pregnant with a toddler??

Glad you had a good appointment and you and baby are doing well! I agree, if you can avoid pitocin all the better, that stuff is tough. I'm sure she'll pick a great birthday!

Well this isn't quite the same thing, but I saw this woman on the Discovery Channel WHILE I was in labor...

I can't wait until she is here, but your right she will come when she's ready.

I have "met" a lot of women since I joined that have the same views as you about waiting. It's a great thing to trust your body and your baby. I hope her birthday is soon

Crossing my fingers you won't even have to worry about Monday!

I'm with you on the sweeping of the membranes. Did that with Joshua and Gracie and I really believe that's why my labors were so rough. And I agree, she'll pick a wonderful day for her birthday

Well, as long as you are feeling fine.. you can 'accidentally' forget about the whole NST thing (repeat after me.. "what NST thing?"), besides, she's going to be born on the 13th anyway, so that's not far off

If I'm not mistaken, they hook you up to the fetal monitor thing just to see how baby doing, and if you are contracting at all.

She'll come when she's ready, good for you for sticking to your guns!

ha I hope she comes soon for you, I hate waiting out the last few days, with my last 2 kiddos I swear I was in labor for weeks just waiting for the contractions to become regular.
