    Well, I had my 2nd 37 week appt today for my 2nd NST of the week -

    All is looking well, he was VERY active for the monitor (I think b/c DH was there and talking to him LOL). He's still measuring right at 37 weeks and my sugars have all been good.

    Anyway, DH was *dying* to know if any progress had been made, so I let her check me again - apparantly, Im now "fingertip" and 50% effaced, still at -3. She helped me explain to DH that it doesnt make a difference what I am NOW b/c it doesnt indicate how soon labor will start or not.

    She did tell me that I need to make up my mind exactly when it's OK for Brayden to come, not b/c of induction but b/c of the time crunch I find myself in for trying to finish residency - I *really* dont want to have to go back to work afterwards, kwim? Especially as it I would have to go back in June or sign a whole nother contract for like, a week.

    So, I think (I hope) Ive convinced myself that after next Tuesday, Im not going to worry about it anymore. Tuesday (5/27), though, I have my 35th week of 36 required weeks of clinic for the year (it's stupid, you only have to go to 1 half day per week but you have to have 36 weeks of it, even if you have other weeks where you do >1 half day per week?), and I have my psychiatrist appt for him to write the quarterly letter to the state medical board that Im not crazy (it's due by June 15th, but cant be sent earlier than June 1st...stupid rules...).

    Anyway, my program director said she wouldnt make me come back for 1 half day of clinic, so...I think after next Tuesday, everything will be officially OK in my head/emotional state, kwim? I'll be 38+4.

    So, I guess the point of that was that she did a similar thing and was ambivalent about when it was OK and ended up having to be induced and she thinks her ambivalence contributed to it and she knows I dont want that.

    It's kind of wierd to think that I only have at maximum 4 more prenatal appts left to go. I kinda feel like Ive been living at that office.

    Default 38+3

    Well, no change from last visit. NST is still looking good.

    I asked her to strip my membranes if possible (TRYING to avoid induction), but she couldnt as Im still not dilated enough - only fingertip at the external os. She also said that he is still ballottable - that his head will go back up out of my pelvis easily, and he is not engaged at all. We think he's ROT, but I suspect he's rotating between ROP and ROA, neither of which are optimal.

    *sigh*

    I see one of her partners on Friday and then her on Tuesday. After that, it's induction time. Im going to put it off as long as I can, but I have read the published literature and I know the risk of stillbirth is low but it still increases enough to convince me after 40 weeks.

    Please send contraction/engagement vibes my way.

    (((((labour)))))

    Try to not let his position get you down. Until he's firmly engaged (and even after he's engaged), the little one can move in all sorts of positions. His position now isn't a great predictor for the way he'll be when he makes his big arrival.

    And I'm glad to hear that he's doing great at the check-ups (and that you won't have to go back to work for a half a day after the birth!)

    ((HUGS)) Sending a lot of wishes for your LO to get in the proper position and stay there. It's frustrating to wait, isn't it???

    I saw my chiro yesterday and she thinks the reason he was all whackily (is that a word?) positioned is that I had a spasm in my right round ligament. I had been wondering why my belly felt bruised over the weekend, but I figured I had bumped into something or gotten kicked really really hard, but apparantly, it was RLP. She did a release and he's definitely in better position now than he was.

    I HOPE he's deciding to put his head in the right place - my upper inner thighs are now sore and my hips, which hasnt happened before, so Im hoping this is a sign that he has done so. It feels like he has when I feel my belly, but Im just not sure what with the carpal tunnel making my hands numb/hurt if I press.

    I guess we'll see tomorrow.
