41 week appointment

basically my body needs to have contractions that are steady to get labor going, baby is really low, my cervix is like butter (haha) etc. 

my midwife natural induction (aka castor oil) date is the January 3rd, this needs to work to still be able to give birth at my birth center (that day i will also get an sonogram to make sure fluid is good etc and another NST), however if that  doesn't work final last resort hospital induction is January 5th.

they think i will go before then but i feel like it will be never. 

Re: 41 week appointment

  • Good luck - You've got a little while before the last resort of induction, so hopefully the baby stops being so darn comfy and gets the heck out on it's own! 

    Just curious, what is the midwife castor oil induction exactly? 

  • I sign into FB every morning hoping to see an update!!

    I know I said it before, but waiting sucks!

    Good Luck with the Castor Oil.

  • ditto Erin, except I'm stalking your twitter.

    and ditto Kel, only a chick would put you through this much torture.


  • I get so disappointed when I see you posting on FB!  I hope this baby stops torturing you and makes a grand entrance before they'd have to induce!

  • I admitted to midwife last night how I feel like I am Never going to have a baby. Like I use I be able to think about Christmas/new years with a baby but now I can't picture a baby in my spring/summer thoughts. Like it is a mind trick and there is no prize at the end of it. This midwife thinks I'll have a seven pounder last week the guess was eight week before was a seven again, I think it will be a large seven pounder. Not looking forward to the castor oil but honestly I would drink it now if she told me too. They are trying to avoid me starting labor unpleasantly.
  • Maybe the top hat is blocking his way out ;)  I vote boy too.

  • well that's good and bad news right? at least you are 1/2 ready- let's get the contraction party started. i think the baby wants to be a mummer and will pop out wearing golden slippers. 

    good luck!  hoping the little one is out asap.

    Sorry for no paragraphs iPhone hates on them. Cold is gone but I do have some nice sore upper left ribs because I threw them out coughing. My body is slowly breaking down on me.
  • Good luck!  I know you will have the 1st baby boy of 2011, so make sure you look good for the TV cameras ;)

  • Come one baby Lachute!! I'm praying you go by tomorrow!!

    I also confess to feeling like a creeper. Like a womb stalker. When I look at FB in the morning, I go to your page and LDs page in hopes for some adorable baby pictures or good news!

    I will give you hope that another friend of mine who was overdue just popped and had an easy 2 hour labor med free! So it can be done and I will keep praying for the birth you want and a healthy baby lachute!

  • I am placing my bets on girl too.

     Only a girl would take this long to get ready ;)

    Lol @ top hat baby *crosses fingers*

    Yeah that's right my name's Yauch!
  • I'd spray paint it tiny gold workboots if I thought it would entice it to come out

    I initially agreed with you in my head but then I remembered that with my son, I went to 42 weeks, 3 days.

  • Ah good luck Lachute!  I know how you feel about not picture him/her in the spring. My doc had originally told me I wouldnt be popping Drew out before Christmas and I was so sad/upset because I had for 9 months pictured Christmas/NYE with a baby. As did you.

    I'm also predicting boy and I hope everything goes smoothly. T&P to you
