Updating lower original post as required and will post final numbers out of curiosity, but wanted to bring it up here quickly.
I am talking about the section rates in my January babies group, to date I have seen nothing like it, we are at 19 babies born, 15 via c-section and 4 natural. Those are some really off kilter outcomes, so I am curious to see if it even’s out at all as we all progress.
Anyhow, 2 days from 37 weeks. No signs of impending labor, they seem to have stopped with the cold. Seeing OB in 2 hours and am gonna ask about antibiotics, cause coughing up green for a week in a row is not something I ever do, and it might be true infection. I so never take AB’s so you know I am desperet, plus I have to pay outright for it with my visa, since I have no cash at all and my prescription insurance ended when I went on Mat leave ( I didn’t want to cough up the 300$ a month to keep it, really, it’s cheaper just to pay for the med’s)
I know she said she would do a cervix check today for me if I want it and also do a membranes sweep, I am going to say yes to the check, and say only yes to the sweep if I am 2+ dialted and ‘could’ go into labor soon on my own, otherwise, the discomfort is not worth it and I will just wait til next week and see what’s what. The anxiety has subsided a bit today because wee one is a tummy dancer again, moving and groving, she was stressing me out yesterday cause she was quiet, still meeting her kick count requirements easily but more still then usual. Glad to see she is back to her busy self today. Curious to see what is what with BP and urine today. As I said I had trace protein in my urine for 2 weeks, but normal BP, then last Thursday I had +2 protein, but again, normal BP so they sent my urine off to the lab for analysis and I haven’t heard anything back yet. Wondering what will happen today, I don’t feel like I have a UTI I usually I always know if I do, so I don’t understand.
