So yesterday I had a false alarm. I thought my water broke but really I just have an infection that can simulate your water breaking pretty well. After a morning of keeping track of contractions, I went in for an appointment at The Birth Center. Here is an update:
-The baby is still head down, but is currently sunny-side up. Since that makes labor longer and harder, the midwives want me spending a lot of time on my hands and knees so that gravity can help flip the Diplomat. Last night I spent a good amount of time leaning on a birth ball and reading.
-My contractions are pretty consistently 9 minutes apart, but I can only feel the really long ones. I can't say I mind.
- I am 2 centimeters dilated. As Mom says, that is 2 centimeters that I don't need to worry about when I am in labor.
-I have three prenatal appointments set up for next week. Hopefully I won't need all three!
