My appt was good. GBS was negative. Baby's HB was 138 or something. Everything looks good. She said it felt like baby's head had dropped a bit. I can't really tell. I joked that my waddle is only from my swollen lady-bits and she said that's because the head descending is causing that. Who knew? I sure didn't.
So the midwife wants to start weekly membrane strips next appt (at 38w2d). I'm not sure how I feel about this. I know baby won't come if he/she isn't ready, but I worry about the risk of premature membrane rupture.
Because I'm a vbac we are on a bit of a time constraint. The midwife said something about not letting me go over 41w3d as per some guidelines, but I forgot to ask what exactly all that was about. Now I wish I'd asked. Ugh, part of me wants to say no, but I worry about getting to 41w3d and wish I had started sweeps earlier. Oh man, I don't know.
