I tend to think it must be *that* OB. My GP can tell baby's position from palpation, nurses do it all the time, and most mommy's can easily tell.
Jenny, you've been quiet the last few days. How are you doing?
Yeah, how are you? I haven't seen much from you on July either, everything going well?
Hey ladies. Sorry I have just been a little busy doing errands etc. I also tend not to get online much on the weekends when Michael is here.
I know I need to type up those seminar notes and have it on my list of to-do's. Today I went and found some blue cohash, went to the breast feeding supply store and got a nursing bra, nursing pillow, and a kangaroo sling. Then I went to the bank and grocery shopping. I was worn out by the time I got home.
My u/s is scheduled for 9:30 am on Thursday and then we meet with the doc at 4pm that afternoon where we will handle this whole induction issue. We saw my doula last night and she thought our birth plan was great and we went over labor and pushing positions.
I must say this pregnancy thing is starting to become a bit cumbersome It is getting hard to do things like laundry or putting away the dishes, etc. Getting out of bed to go to the bathroom needs some calculated thought on my part.
We are taking all of the animals in on Saturday for their checkup and any needed shots. They aren't due until the beginning of next month but hauling all 6 with a newborn sounds pretty difficult. We get a huge discount if they are all brought in at once.
Basically I'm just keeping busy doing the things that need to be done. I find it so peaceful not knowing when this baby will arrive. I love the surprise of it. I think if I knew I was have a section or an induction I would be so conscious of counting down the days.
ITA, about how exciting it is not knowing when baby will arrive. It would really change things to have baby's birthday already marked on the calendar weeks in advance.

Okay, where have you been able to find blue cohash? I know I am like 2 weeks away from wanting to use something like that, but I still want to know where I'd look to find it. I was at Central Market yesterday and had no luck. I did find the red rasberry leaf tea there thouh. They also had the EPO and casteroil. Oh...and I read somewhere that good rich chocolate can stimulate things so I picked up 70% dark cocoa while I was there...even if it doesn't bring on labor, it is SO DANG GOOD!
I'm just glad to see you back here girlie.
The big "weight" u/s is tomorrow as well as a doctor's appointment with the first doc we saw. We will be going over the plan from here on out.
I saw the chiro today and we got the best crack on the left side of my neck. Normally he can't get that side to go. He felt the position of the baby, which he was taught by midwives, and said he thinks she is head down. I actually think she dropped lower into my pelvis yesterday. I can say I'm pretty ready to have my little girl. Anytime would be fine
You're getting so close now! Hope your appts tomorrow go well!
