My obstetrician told me yesterday that if I was serious about wanting to deliver in week 38 or 39 he had a sure fire way.
All I have to do is cut all short chain carbs and most long chain carbs from my diet starting now. Blood glucose levels seem to have much to do with labor hormones.
I came home and contemplated this over a slice of cake that I ate standing in the corner of the kitchen with my fingers and the knife.
Later Sparky came up and hugged me. He said I smelled like citrus. I didn’t tell him it was the cake crumbs that had fallen down my shirt.
