    I don't normally post to lodges, but follow most. Does anybody else think it's a good sign she hasn't given her daily update?

    Default 41w 1d: PM update

    Hey you guys! Sorry to disappoint but I am still here and still pregnant!

    I had a full day w/mom, DH, & DD shopping and toodling about. Lots of ctx (BH?) but nothing painful. Not even any of those double-me-over twinges. I'm very big but still getting around easily and my feet don't even hurt at the end of a long day--what the heck?

    I had a good talk with the MW on call last night. I've only met her once but I like her. I told her how I felt about not wanting the induction and she said she understood. She herself went over 2wks past EDD with her child. I got the sense that even though she was duty-bound to suggest induction at 41.5wks per hospital policy, she truly respected my decision to wait it out as long as the baby and I are healthy. She said the evidence for herbal assists (EPO, cohosh, etc) is all anecdotal but she feels it can't hurt. I asked her if she recommended *against* black cohosh and she said she didn't. I bought some yesterday but haven't opened it yet. (Still using EPO daily.)

    As for nipple stim: my MWs consider it as serious as pit (since it releases oxytocin) so they don't recommend doing it except at the hosp where they can intermittently monitor. I haven't felt inclined to get my pump out.

    They want me to come to the Birthing Pavilion on Sunday morning for another NST. At that time I'll ask to be checked again and maybe they can do the S&S. The MW I love is on tomorrow, though, but that would be too soon to be seen again.

    So I'm madly hoping I go into labor tonight or tomorrow. My concern now is DH's graduation next Saturday. I'm seriously worried that I won't have delivered by Wednesday (41w6d) and then will have to choose to be induced or definitely miss the graduation. DH & I both got tears in our eyes just now talking about it. Obviously neither of us wants me to have to have an IV and increased chance of needing pain meds, but the thought of me or both of us missing the ceremony is painful too. (I know, no comparison to the birth of a child, but we never thought they would coincide.)

    That's where we're at! Wish me spontaneous labor tonight or tomorrow! Oh, and I'm still a teensy bit spotty since yesterday but no plug or anything that seems like it would qualify as bloody show.

    ME TOO! And the most positive. If I were you Helina I'd be spitting bullets and complaining all day long! You are handling everything so gracefully. I LOVE your new siggy pic BTW!

    ((((LABOR VIBES!!!))))
