Might as well post about it in case I don’t get to Sunday for my usual post! Not that I specifically think I won’t, but one can hope.
So the CNM didn’t offer to check me or anything, and said that if I don’t have the baby by the next appointment that they’ll then schedule an induction. I was like, nah, I’d rather avoid that. I said I’d rather have things checked up on in there before doing that, and also asked if they could strip membranes next week and she said sure. My appointment is on Wednesday morning. So good to know that some measure will be taken by then if she’s not here!
I told the midwife about how I’ve been feeling nervous lately with M spinning positions and then the decrease in movement. It’s not that she doesn’t move much, it’s just different than it used to be. It’s less and there’re less super strong movements. I guess she just doesn’t have much room for them anymore though. Sure feels like she has no room… her head is way at the bottom and her butt is all up in my ribs when I sit. B never felt like he took up so much space, so it makes me wonder if she’s tall/long! B was 20.5″. Anyway… to make me feel better she sent me for an NST. Everything looked good. I didn’t know that involved a buzzer, I told the nurse she’s not going to like that! And she didn’t, she jumped and then was wiggly with a higher heartrate for a few minutes afterward.
Funny ever since starting that NST I’ve felt pretty crampy. That’s at least something.
Oh, random symptom I’ve had the last I think 5 days… carpal tunnel syndrome. I’ve heard of it happening, not sure why. I don’t think my hands look swollen or anything. But my carpal tunnel area hurts to be pushed on and otherwise feels really tight. Weird.
