Note: slightly graphic pregnancy-related information to follow, so if you are squeamish, feel free to stop reading now.
I haven’t noticed any more amniotic fluid, but I have started having a pinkish discharge, or “bloody show.” This doesn’t necessarily mean labor is imminent, but at least it’s a step in the right direction.
One of my midwives came over to my house to check on Baby and me. Baby is head-down (yay!) and is reacting well (the heart rate is varying nicely instead of staying perfectly steady, which could indicate fetal distress).
My midwives suggest that I stay at home as much as possible to reduce the risk of infection. This is fine with me. When else in my life am I ever going to have a great excuse to just hang out at home and read, crochet, sleep, watch movies, etc.? My midwives said I could go for a walk. It’s too hot outside right now (in the 90’s), but maybe I will go when it cools off this evening.
Still no contractions. I am hoping and praying they will start soon.
I appreciate everyone’s prayers. Thank you so much.
