So officailly, I believe it's ok for him to decide to make a break for it anytime now... I don't think he has any intention, but he's welcome to.
So we are initiating project "Gentle Nudge" which consists of some spicy food, more walking, and, of course, sex.
Way back at 10 weeks when I had my scary cramping episode, we couldn't find anything to blame other than "natural prostaglandins" so we decided to wrap it up (yes, safe sex for pregos too). So now we are not, hoping that maybe my cervix will benefit from the natural prostaglandins.
And another exciting thing has happened. I'm leaking colostrum. I've seen crusties for quite a while, but I'm finally leaking droplets. I was really excited when I saw this the other day, but at the same time, somewhat grossed out by it. That wasn't the reaction I was expecting. I'm really looking forward to breastfeeding, but without an infant to nurse, the magic is lost.
And I had an appointment with McSoothy today. We discussed the issue of when we would call it and stop trying to attempt a vaginal delivery and go to a c-section. Basically she couldn't give me anything concrete, but assuming that their were no other complications, she said we would make the decision together. She said often the decision is made after pushing and pushing and nothing happening... that doesn't sound fun, but we will just have to see. Oh and I'm positive for Strep B. Joy.
And tomorrow is my MFM appt again. She wants me to rediscuss "delivering by" a certain date with him. Before it was forty weeks, but I think now that we know that I'm "limited" down there, she wants me to recheck that he wouldn't prefer a 39 or 38 week delivery. I really feel that 38 weeks seems rash, especially considering that's NEXT week but we will get new measurements tomorrow and see where that leaves us.
