WEEK 39: Well, There’s No Easy Way to Say it: You’re Effing Enormous | Preggo Nancy | Scary Mommy


– As you can see, my belly
has clearly dropped very low. How low can you go, baby? (cheerful music) I am ready you guys. I got my mom jokes firing,
belly popping, lets do this! So, I’m just sitting here
waiting for signs of labor. That can be anything. It could be cramps, back pain,
diarrhea, or the bloody show, which sounds like a really
cool new show from Netflix which I would totally watch, but it’s not. It is discharge that is a
little bit pink or brown. It indicates ruptured blood vessels as the cervix is starting to open. If I go over my due date, the
doctor may strip my membranes. This is a fairly common
way to get labor started. And it’s pretty much
exactly what it sounds like. The doctor uses a gloved finger to separate the amniotic
sac from the uterus wall. It’s like (slurps), ugh. It usually gets labor
started within 48 hours. Let me tell ya, that is sounding
very appealing right now. My husband and I need
to have a conversation about circumcision. If we have a boy, it’s
definitely gonna come up. Circumcision isn’t medically necessary. It’s more of like a personal, cultural, or religious preference. If it happens in the hospital, the OB will do it a few days after birth, or a rabbi will do it
a few days later also, if you want to go that route. But let me tell ya, (yawns) I am trying to take as
much time as I can now to take a lot of naps because
once this baby is here, I have a feeling I’m not gonna
be sleeping very much at all. All right week 40, lets go!
