Back from the doc

38w1d, and baby is moving in the right direction. Doc says I am over 50% effaced, still 1 cm dialted, but that the baby is at -2 to -1 station, soft cervix. This is a whole lot better than last week's doom and gloom c-section talk appointment. Phew!!

I can't say for sure if the acupuncture is what did it, but I believe it did do somthing to me on Tuesday! I go back on Monday.

Here's a link to a website where you can download a file that goes through acupressure points for labor. It's only 21 pages or so. I printed it out, put it in a binder, and told DH he has homework to do before Monday's acupuncture appointment. She said she would show him how to do these properly. I love my acupuncturist!!!

Ok. Back to my work now. Cheers!

great news! I can't wait to find out (I think I start getting internal exam next week) if I'm anywhere close (will only be 36w and some days) to seeing this baby on the outside!

Will take a look at the acupressure points!

It sounds like the acupuncture appt really helped things along. I read your birth plan below. I wonder how the nurses go about following those. I hope your experience is exactly what is best for you and baby!
