Well today I’m 40 weeks 3 days. I know that most babies are not born on their due date, but I’m pretty sure she thinks she is staying in for the winter, But hey, can I blame her, it’s 7 degrees F outside right now.
I’m not too uncomfortable when I am up and about. In bed is when I am most uncomfortable. I have a lot of pelvis pressure, but thats expected. I am sleeping pretty good too, partly because I have extra people in my house right now so I can kick the dogs out and someone is up to watch them. But I do want her out, I am ready to play with her, and dress her up, and snuggle her, and I want her to feel real.
(warning, about to talk about lady bits, skip to next paragraph if you’d like) My last appt on friday (due date) I wasn’t dilated hardly at all on Friday. She was able to get one finger through my cervix and attempt to strip my membranes, but she had a hard time, and it was extremely uncomfortable.
So she can come any day now. I am doing everything humanly and holistically possible to get her out safely, and I don’t have much progress. Lets see, I’m taking Evening Primrose Oil, drinking Raspberry Leaf tea, I tried black cohosh tea, which BTW tastes like dirty socks and cat litter, I’m walking (although the weather is not permitting much of this because I don’t want to drive to Walmart.) I also just ate half a pineapple, and the other half is waiting in the fridge, That’ll make two pineapples this week. I’ve got doc appts Monday and Wednesday to have my membranes stripped again. So I hope she comes out, maybe tonight?
