Come on Come on
So what can I do to start labor?
Nipple stimulation, long walks, spicy foods, sex...
I wonder if any of those will work for me, and if not what can I try next. Its not that I am in a hurry to not be pregnant any more, I am just worried that a.) she will turn again and be breech and b.) my fluid level was a little low, so that is not good. (it was on the "low end of normal" according to the nurse at the hospital.)
As for the fluid level, the midwife has given me instructions to drink LOTS of water (more than usual- this means LOTS, like gallons!) and to sit in the bath for 30 mins 2-3 times today. I should be peeing at least every half hour.
I am to repeat that tomorrow.
Thursday I have yet another ultrasound scheduled, to check the fluid level. So once again I will be leaving the house. I don't want to go anywhere. I want to stay home. I keep hoping that I will go into labor so that I will not have to go any where for at least a few days!
I am looking at the O/B Ultrasound order that Midwife sent me. Last time the place hadn't received it, and had to call her. So this time she sent it to them AND me. I am tired of this, I am tired of having to be checked for these things. I want to relax and get ready for her birth- instead of worrying- which I know is NOT helping! So what can I do to relax?
I guess I will go sit in the bath for 30 minutes, then take a nap. Its going to be another long monotonous evening.
