This is my story…fresh in my mind..
I was on my 40 weeks and 3 days but still no sign of popping. We were expecting that I would give birth a week or two prior to my expected due date which was February 6 because this is my 3rd pregnancy already.
Sideline story: My brother (our fengh shui master) asked me to schedule my giving birth either on the 5th, 7th, 10th or 14th of February because of my chinese astrology thingy (how do I do that?!) . Definitely, the 6th nor the 8th is not a good date to give birth. He even mentioned the time but that’s too much for me already! But I think the baby somehow listened…(while I silently thought of this too…I can’t help but pray that RA would come out on 5th, 7th, 10th or 14th too knowing that the 6th or 8th is a bad day…I’m not really a hard core but since I knew this already, it was hard not to think about it..)
11.30am - Scheduled check-up with Dr. LG. She did an internal exam (IE) and I was already 3-4cm open. She had to do an ultrasound to ensure that the baby inside me is safe and has enough water. Indeed, the baby feel so much at home. I have more than enough required water at 40 weeks and 3 days BUT just the same, I was required to do a NST (nonstress test) at the hospital.
