We saw Liz, the midwife, this morning for the first time in like two months! Hip hip hooray! All is well with reference to the baby. I am still pregnant, shocking news I know!
My BP is 112 over 74 so good, Baby Pancake's heart rate was 130 and I am measuring 36 in the belly area. All of this is normal or so I am told.
I am beta strep positive so that means an IV hook up during labor again. I figured as much and it is all good. At least I know what it means this time and while it sucks to have an IV pole to drag around while in active labor it is what it is.
We also scheduled an induction date for various reasons. I am not telling when just because it is fun to keep you guessing. A hint: it is after the due date.
Finally, Liz checked me (and um OUCH!) I am 1 cm and about 50% effaced which was a surprise to us to some degree! That is mostly what I was with M but not until closer to 40 weeks and it never changed even during those 14 days overdue. I am keeping my chin up and hoping for some good strong storm fronts to sweep through the area! I am off to drink some Raspberry Leaf tea, by the gallon!
