We had another appointment with the midwife today. All is still well and we'll just continue to wait. Baby's HR is fine and she doesn't think Nojo is over 8 1/2 lbs so that is good (for me anyway). Our next appointment will be on Monday, followed by another appointment on Thursday (she likes to see people twice weekly at this point) after which we will schedule an appointment with the backup doctor for Friday the 22nd. If it comes to that, the doctor will do a biophysical profile on the baby to determine how we proceed according to how Nojo is doing in there. But perhaps it won't come down to that- we still have a lot of time between now and then (an eternity if you ask me!). Funny side note, even the midwife is nesting FOR me- apparently she's on a wicked cleaning spree in her house including the basement and spice cupboard!
Now for the fun part...I'm going to start a list of the dumb things people have told me will induce labor. Feel free to add your crazy ideas as I probably won't try them anyway:
1. Jumping jacks
2. Eat spicy food
3. Walk stairs
4. Have sex (most common)
5. Eat lasagna (perhaps this is "spicy" to some people?)
6. Consume castor oil
I'm sure there are more I can't think of right now, but these stick out in my mind.
Hopefully the next time I post, there will be a picture of little Nojo!!!
