Hi, I'm a late comer to your lodge, Congratulations!! I loved reading your posts
YAY for ds! What a good little boy already! Hope that this means progress for you soon!
No progress again. I saw my Dr's partner today. the NST is good, at least.
he is still 'floating', Im still not dilated and now the effacement I had is gone, too. This sucks.
i guess all I can do is wait until tuesday to hash this one out w/my regular doc. I did find out that she's the one on call on Wednesday, so that's probably when she'll push to induce.
I hope this baby surprises you and gets things going soon. How are you feeling today?
I emailed my doula yesterday after crying for an hour - Im just trying to forget all about everything. Her reply kind of helped - told me to lay off the pump, etc if all it's doing is stressing me out. It's not helping that the phone calls from family are starting to come in. "WHat's the news? Are you inducing? We cant wait til he's here!" etc. Ugh. thanks for the pressure.
I can at least feel pressure sometimes today, if I sit leaning forward, so maybe that means something, but Im not sure. I still have only had like 2 contractions that Ive felt w/o mushing my hands into my tummy since I was 32 weeks and basically in PTL from job stress.
He still hasnt dropped at all, and I can still walk pretty much normally.
He's just not ready to come out yet, and I dont want to force him to if he's not ready, kwim?
Ok, I figured I should post any happy news along with the rest of my hormonal freak out LOL
I had a contraction that I actually FELT while on our nightly walk tonight. I havent had one of those in 2 weeks, and before that, it was at 32 weeks when I was on 30 hour call in PICU and basically in PTL (couldnt go to L&D as I had no backup at the time).
Still didnt hurt, but hey, I'll take what I can get.
He's trying to get in my pelvis, too, I think. I can definitely feel more pressure.
This all sounds very promising. I hope things really start to pick up for you soon!
