She's getting lower and started moving more frequently... But other than very occasional mild cramping and one or two contractions when I first stand up (not BH, since these sweep upwards instead of just clenching), I don't think I am progressing.
Chiropractic didn't do anything. Last night I ate pineapple and inserted some primrose oil in me. No difference. This morning I am having acupuncture.
This holding pattern post due date is really doing a number on my spirit. I've been saying "one day closer" for so long now.........
I slept from 10-12:30pm, then I went into "our" bdrm (I haven't been able to sleep on anything but the livingrm couch for months now) and sat by DH, who curled around me, at 3:40 this morning. My muscles relaxed a little, but I still couldn't get back to sleep.
We live on the East side of town.
10:00 acupuncture (West side of town)
12:20 OB appt: 30 min fetal monitor plus an hour u/s (East side of town)
6pm marital counseling (West side of town)
I'm praying for an afternoon nap.
Oh Hun, I hope your day goes well, I can't believe how much you have to do. All of the driveing around should make you sleep well, I hope. Let us know how everything goes. I'm not sure if I've seen or not, but which due date where you going by? Aren't we getting close to the line? Just wondering how that is all sitting with you today. Here's to a good day!
Hang in there, I know it seems like LO is taking forever. Hope you can get some rest.
Hope you got a nice nap in today!! I am glad to hear she seems lower and I hope the pineapple kicks in soon. Everyone on the Sept 08 board is raving about eggplant parmesan too. Good luck!! Hang in there and I hope you go soon...

I got up to go to the acupuncturist, and there was some blood! I thought oh please oh please let this be the start........! It was the first time I have felt positive or hopeful in months.
Not a good appt at the doc's. All within 5 minutes, She said the bleeding meant nothing, that people can lose their m/p 2 weeks before anything happens, she used a smaller b/p cuff and it was 130/96 and she said they may have to induce me if it was pre-e, then had me lie down in an incredibly painful position and did a cervical check I would have prefered not to have. It really hurt and she couldn't reach anyway. I had been so hopeful and all it did was make me cry.
I see the doula tomorrow, who will call the doc with an updated b/p.
Afterwards, I got acupuncture, but she only had time to do a "rest" treatment, which had me sleep, which was desperately needed, but not an "induction" treatment.
Then on to marital counseling. The session was pretty upbeat for once.
DH is out buying me underwear, since I am still lightly bleeding and none fit.
Still bleeding and having intensifying cramps? I know you don't want to get your hopes up, but I really think that is encouraging. Glad you got a little bit of rest, do more of the same today if you can, because I believe this is the start of something for you so sending you ELV!
