Still pregnant….I’m feeling generally ok. Had an appointment with the midwife this morning: I’m 2.5 cm dilated and 60% effaced and baby is very low in position which is all good news. Lucy’s heartbeat sounds great and the midwife estimated that she’s about 6 or 6.5 lbs. I’ve been having cramping and contractions on and off for a couple of weeks now and I’m trying not to get too excited when they show up because they always fizzle out. My only real complaint is that the pressure on my pubic bone feels unbearable every time I try to change position. Getting out of bed is excruciating. The midwife says that’s just the pressure of the baby’s head and the ligaments and bones opening and stretching. Whew. Otherwise, everything is about the same!
The good news is that Benjamin should be coming home this afternoon. He hasn’t had a fever since Saturday and his rash has been clearing up and no new spots for a couple of days. I put in a call to his pediatricians office to see what they recommend but while we wait for them to get back to us, we’re just going to bring him home. Can’t wait to see him!
Keep praying for Benjamin and Lucy’s health and a safe delivery! We can’t wait to have both our little ones under the same roof. Also, I’m totally interested in any of your natural labor induction methods! Send them my way. I’ve been eating spicy foods for almost every meal for two weeks.
