Coming Soon

My blood pressure is rising and there's a new size discrepancy between the babies, giving reason enough to induce this week if I wasn't already 50% and 2 cm. The boy should be good but the girl hasn't grown well over the past month. They're still lined up for a vaginal birth, which would be ideal for the girl's lungs. There's a possibility she'll need assistance breathing. They'll check them again early next week if labor hasn't already started on its own by then.

You've made it so far Sheila! Both of your babies AND you are in my thoughts this week! Are you going off "bedrest" to start contractions?

Thanks, guys.

We're finalizing names -- the girl's name is pretty much set and we're just discussing the spelling of the boy's name (and maybe still looking a bit).

The size discrepancy isn't a normal difference, unfortunately. The boy has been and remains about two weeks ahead so he'll be big enough and good to go. The girl used to be about a week ahead but hasn't grown much in a month so her overall development (and lung function) could be behind, too. I don't know if she has a placental problem or what.

If they don't come this weekend, I'll see a peri on Tuesday to check the girl's well being and maybe then I'll know an end date if he decides to induce. I've had this coming Wednesday's date stuck in my head for months now ... so maybe then?

Last night I had a little bit of blood and a LOT of pain from the cervix check. Holy crap, why did no one warn me? And also, how did I not just KNOW it would be incredibly painful to have someone jam their fingers up my cervix?? YOUCH!

I'm surprised they didn't tell you that might spot from the exam.

So are you still on bedrest ? Can you DTD to get things going? Not that it's an easy thing right now.

Nope, I'm still just lying around. We'll know more next week (if I make it that far, and so far no babies!) about whether the girl is better off inside or out.

I hope your labor starts so you can get going with this. And I hope their measurements are off in your little girls favor!

Yes, hopefully! My OB measured three times for some reassurance and kept getting smaller numbers so he gave up. Sad
