Well, today was another Doctor's appointment. I think I might be losing my mind! I went to the Dr. at 8am this morning thinking I was right. However, my appointment wasn't until 2:15pm. Whoops. So, back I went this afternoon.
Good News - the baby still looks GREAT. Strong heartbeat, good reaction to contractions, decent size, plenty of amniotic fluid and the little floaties in the water might just be cells and not scary meconium.
However, since per the Dr.'s calculations next Tuesday is 42 weeks he says that if I still show up for my appointment on Tuesday pregnant we'll be scheduling my induction for that evening. Of course, he says he can't force me, but that bad things can happen after 42 weeks if the placenta were to stop working well.
So...there you have it. An update on where we are at. There's nothing terribly wrong or scary about induction (necessarily) however, I would really prefer to not go there. So....Please join us in praying that we'll see this little guy's face by Tuesday! ;-)
The good news on that end is I keep having contractions and they keep getting more uncomfortable. They just aren't regular yet.
Oh - and we got our rocking chair! Mom joked - maybe the little guy was just waiting around until he knew he could get rocked back to sleep in that really nice chair! And Stephen joked - maybe he just thinks it's still too cold outside! Either way - now we have the chair and this weekend is supposed to be warm. maybe maybe......
Till next time!
