    Default Crazy 41 week appointment

    So had my appointtment today. BP was great, his heartbeat is great. He measures 39 weeks. I am 100% effaced, still just dilated a fingertip.

    Then I went to my sono....

    Saw his precious face and he has a lot of hair and a double chin. On the sono his weight was 6.5lbs but told me it could be off by a pound either way, but for 41 weeks its a tad bit small...but me and my husband are small so its ok. But then the sonographer asked me "Are you planning to go natural." I said yes and asked why and she said "because his fluid is so low that I am guessing they will send you to the hospital right away."

    So I met with my hippy midwife again who called the more medically minded midwife since she is on call. The medical midwife said her recommendation is to have me to go to the hospital tonight to get induced, but since his birth weight is on the low end, she would let me decide. I told the hippy midwife I really didn't want to be induced but I want what's best for my baby and she said that while my fluid is low, that I'm healthy and he looks healthy and should do fine until monday when they would recheck my fluid levels. She said to rest and not walk and drink lots of water. So that's what I'm doing. I told work that I'm not coming in tomorrow and that I've officially started my maternity leave. So tomorrow, I will have a movie marathon or something.

    I hope he comes on his own before Monday! Do they have you doing kick counts to make sure he keeps doing okay in there? Good luck!

    No need for kick counting because he moves constantly. He was moving during the whole appointment and doing his practice breathing. He is moving now even. I think I've lost parts of my mucous plug today and I have diarrhea, so lets hope it happens soon.

    1. I want to congratulate you for letting your boss know you're officially on maternity leave. I know that wasn't easy to do but needed to be done.. You need some "you" time - as little as you're going to get.

    2. Did they give you a number on your fluid score? Just curious.. As long as the little man is safe and no one is concerned, good for you for making the decision you wanted to.

    I can't wait until you go into labor - here's some seriously QUICK vibes!

    Ha thanks Adriana. It felt so good to say "I'm not coming in tomorrow."

    My level was a 7. They said at 5 they induce no questions asked.

    Here's something...my contractions are picking up as of an hour ago. Whoohoo, feels like something is happening. Maybe Henry is ready to come now that he knows I'm officially done working. Haha.

    Those all sound like good signs- you said he is moving constantly. Is he moving more than normal? The night before I went into labor with Liliana, she was moving so much it kept me awake a lot which was not normal for her. Then I went into labor so maybe he is working himself into position to come out! And diarrhea is a great sign too, especially if you have started having more contractions. Really hoping this is it and sending ELVs to you!
