40 Week Appt. Update

Yep. I’m still here and still pregnant. I had my 40 week appt. a day early today. Here’s a list of things that I’m happy to report about: my BP is good, my weight is stable, baby’s heartbeat sounded great, I’m 3cm dilated & 50% effaced.  Here’s what I’m not happy to report about: baby is still having a grand old time in utero and won’t engage. ARGH!

So what now?  The Doctor's won’t let me go 10 days past my due date so I have no choice but to set up an induction date tomorrow.  I cringe at the thought and can’t believe that it's gotten to this point...but I understand that they’re just following protocol.  Now, with that being said...please, please, PLEASE send some labor vibes my way. I really don’t want to be induced and would much rather go into labor on my own. The Dr. (and my mum) suggested I go walk the mall after my appt. so that’s exactly what I did...for two hours straight. Sure, I got strange looks and stares from just about everybody but I couldn’t care less. I’m on a mission. I will write a formal eviction notice if I have to.  I also plan to start trying all the other old wives tales to induce labor tomorrow…well, except for maybe castor oil.  I'll be sure to keep you all posted!

Here come some LABOR VIBES!!!! At least you're making progress...that's GREAT news! They told me to walk the mall last week too - so funny.

And yes, Castor Oil DOES work...my sister did that with her first...but I wouldn't recommend it!
