37 Week Appt.

The midwife I saw today doesn't start checking until 38 weeks, so next week we will see if anything is happening! I was kind of disappointed, but Rowan had to go to the appt. so that probably would have been a little weird with him in the room!

I did buy some raspberry leaf tea and evening primrose oil, to start taking and hopefully they can help move stuff along. Next week's appt. will start with a Non Stress Test, something they do routinely w/ gestational diabetes ( and I managed to avoid for the last 2 weeks). We also set up my appt. for right before my due date which starts with an ultrasound at 1:15 (fliud check), a non stress test at 2:20, and a regular appt at 3:15!! I am really hoping to avoid this appointment, who wants to spend that much time waiting!

Since Rowan still had a slight fever this morning he had to go to the appointment with us, which limited the errands we could run, which meant no dishwasher shopping :( Oh well, maybe next week!

You're in the home stretch, honey! Hang in there!

I tried all of the labor inducers with Pretty Girl - eggplant, pineapple, walking, etc. Nope - she wanted us to evict her, so we induced after her due date. But I know that waiting sucks, so I'm sending big hugs your way!

Pineapple? I haven't heard that one! I was induced with Rowan too, but am hoping to avoid it this time, also I don't know hoe long they'll give me cause of the gestational diabetes. And I want to get in the jacuzzi tub there and they won't let you use it if you're induced!
