39w Midwife Appointment [Jun. 29th, 2006|09:26 am]
(Again, this was Monday. :p My mom was awesome enough to drive me up and back, since it's just too much of a haul for me to do the almost 2 hours each way now.)


BP: 116/72
Weight: 178 (-2 from last week)
FH: 36cm (same as last week)
FHT: 140bpm
Urine: White blood cells, but no cause for worry :)

My questions this time were about labour, surprise surprise. First I asked if 24 hours of ruptured membranes would mean automatic transfer to the hospital. Happily enough, she said not as long as baby and I were doing fine! I said I had been a little nervous with things I had read about GBS and not doing antibiotics, so I will be doing a douche in labour with something called Hibiclens. It's used to clean skin before surgery, so I'm pretty sure it'll take care of any lingering GBS. (Since I'm still doing the garlic.)

The second question was about when to call her. As soon as I know it's for real, I am supposed to call so she can start getting ready. If I'm not sure, it's okay to wait. (Especially if it happens in the middle of the night ;)

Baby was back on the left side, maybe a little bit too far. I think she may have corrected that since the appointment, though. (As a matter of fact, I think she had swung over to my right side for a little. I don't know how she has that much room left to move!) Based on my fundal height remaining the same and the soreness on my pubic bone when she palpated, she thinks baby is dropping!

My next appointment is Monday the 3rd at 1pm. ("Assuming [I] make it that long." HAHAHAHA... I'm getting to that "I'll be pregnant FOR-EV-ER" stage now.)

I'm so glad your mom can be helpful to you. I'm a little jealous as well. (smile)
Good Grief to me, I'm reading your journal and see the TMI warning. I'm wondering what that is since you previously stated somthing about GBS concerns. So, I click the link and get your journal again. Hummm, I go back to the original, read again, and then LMAO. So sad, really.

I think you are a wonderful woman and a great mother to Adia. Not to mention a good partner for my precious.

Again, you are in my thoughts and prayers.
