My aunt(my father’s sister) had a stroke. It seems that she had the stroke on Saturday, but no one knew. The only reason she’s in the hospital right now is that when no one could reach her by phone, her daughter sent the cops to her house. They found her on the floor of her kitchen unconscious. Thankfully, she was alive. They rushed her to the hospital to run tests and they confirmed that she had a stroke. She’s not moving her right side and can’t talk. But she’s stable. My parents and brother were supposed to come up here today, but they stayed an extra day to make sure she was alright. She’s doing as well as can be expected right now.
And in pregnancy news……
So no baby.
I thought for sure I was going into labor last night: backache, menstrual like cramps, headache…….
But no. The contractions went away and I went to bed.
So today, I went to the OB and after waiting almost an hour, I got checked out.
Weight: Same. (Yeah me!)
Heartbeat : Hard to find today. He seems to be turned in some strange position. But it was its regular 140s.
Cervix: 1 cm. Yes, I’ve regressed.
The baby’s head seems to be sky high, but she did manage to touch it today. Can you say……..PAINFUL?????????
Then, she proceeded to strip my membranes.
I don’t want to do that again. EVER!!!!!!
So, I did come away with a plan. If I don’t deliver by this weekend, I have an appointment scheduled for Monday. They will do an ultrasound to see how big he is, how the fluid looks, how he looks. And then schedule a date for induction.(sigh)
Well, at least there is a plan.
