I've been soo busy with work and trying to organize life at home that I've had very little time on here, I have so many lodges to catch up on.
Today I have a half day and I'm back at the hospital for NST, BPP and blood work, I hope they let me go home and the newbie can bake at least another week. The OB that my MW is sharing care with won't be there, but the one who delivered DS will be, I couldn't understand a word he said when I was delivering DS lol, so this should be interesting, he has a super thick Spanish accent, but I do remember him having a great sense of humour..when I could understand him lol.
I'll kup on the results later
I hope your appt goes well!
I've so been MIA. Friday was my last day of work for a year and 2 weeks WOOT, but I was so busy and my mom is down this weekend for a visit that i havne't had a chance to update.
My hospital tests went well which means I get to stay pregnant until at least Thursday and maybe even next thursday. They're going to check me on Thursday and I guess if my cervix is favourable for induction then they'll do it, but if not they'll let me go one more week.
I've dropped quite a bit in the last couple of days, I feel like I'm trying to hold a watermelon between my legs when I walk lol, and my ankles are starting to swell. Not too bad since I started swelling early with DS and now I'm off work so i'll have a few more chances to put my feet up....well as much as my 2 YO will let me.
So my task at hand is to try some natural induction methods or just prepare myself and maybe help the process. I've started with the Red Raspberry leaf tea, I'm going to have to start putting out once in a while LOL (soooo not in the mood for that) and what ever else I can do. I'm open to suggestions.
My mom took a belly pic of me that I was pretty happy with so I'll share
The only time it's acceptable to wear stripes LOL, and you can tell by the shirt that the seams are really working hard to keep me contained
I think you look great. I am so glad your test came back good.
you look so amazing!! I love that top too! Makes your bump look awesome!
Would they induce you right at the cervix check or would they wait til the next morning? Just curious... Well, either way, Greg works til thursday, so I have mucho help from him plus car access in case you need anything. Care for Aidan or anything. I know I say it all the time, I just don't want you to hesitate if you need anything, even the little things. Lemme know.
they may induce me at cervix check since the OB who is sharing care with my MW is on call that day, I'll be there at 8am so I guess it would give them ample time if my cervix is favourable.....I hope anyway.
Jordan- I will make sure to call you as soon as anything happens anyway, whether or not we need anything, I just want you to know. I don't think I'll call you to come to the hospital though, I would have for sure for a homebirth, but I"m not sure what's going to happen there and how many people will be in and out of the room. Also I would have had you bring Fiona for the homebirth, she's still a nursling and wouldn't have been a problem at all, I'd hate for her to be at the hospital and catch something there, it's just so medical there and the poor thing would probably be out of sorts. But for sure, you'll be the first to know....seriously lol, my mom doesn't even want to know until after I'm not in pain anymore LOL.
