Two nights ago, P and I ordered Chinese food, but we forgot about the fortune cookies until we ate round one of leftovers last night. I opened mine first: "You are about to embark on a most delightful journey." I hope that's true. I am glad I didn't open the one P got, though I don't recall what it actually said -- it was in no way personally meaningful. (Though not as bad as the one he got once that said, I believe, "You love horses, sports, and gambling, but not to excess." That one was just odd.)


Based on my midwife's warning on Tuesday, I now have a serious fear of a prolapsed cord should my water break (which was how my mother went into labor both times), so if anyone has any suggestions for getting Lou to move down into my pelvis (or to get my pelvis to open enough to let this happen), I'm glad to hear them. Or if you think I'm now worried over nothing, I'm glad to hear that too.

I have no advice on the pelvis situation but congrats on being so close! Can't wait to see him!

I can't help with the pelvis situation, but I'll keep my fingers crossed that you don't need to worry about it.

Delightful journey, indeed!

The only advice I've been given is to spend time rocking my pelvis, on my hands and knees. Whether you take that as an opportunity to also scrub the kitchen floor, as my husband has suggested to me, is entirely up to you. :)

Good luck!

Two words: Birthing Ball.

Sit and rock, sit and rock, sit and rock.

You can also do deep squats, but you will need to have help getting up this far along in your pregnancy.
