Went to my 38 week appointment today. My fluid is measuring good, Maya is still on the smaller side and I am measuring 37 weeks. Up until today I was always measuring right on track. NST was looking good as well. Did my cervical check and I am still closed and "rock hard" as he said. We went into his office after I got the gel off my belly to talk, we were in there for a good 20-25 minutes discussing everything. He told me that he wanted to schedule a c-section date after my due date and if I go into labor on my own then I do and if not then we will do the c-section, he does not want me to go much after my due date for safety reasons for Maya so I could have had it scheduled on the 10th or 13th, I def didnt want the 13th because it's Friday the 13th and just creeps me out and we both agreed we didnt want that date. I asked him in all honestly, from his experience, with my body doing nothing and me being so close to my due date what would my chances of actually going into labor on my own. He was honest and said that they were pretty slim, I should be doing something at the least. Maya is not engaged at all like I first thought. He said when he pushes on her head she just floats. He said if I was dilated that we could talk about an induction but with my body have not of done anything an induction would be out of the question because it would be too risky and the risk of uterine rupture would be greater. So, after a lot of discussing with ups and downs of everything we both agreed that I will just have a repeat c-section and Maya will more than likely be here on Tuesday. I have to call tomorrow and confirm. I knew this was a possibility because I did not dilate with my son and even with cervidal and pitocin I still was barely at a 2 after 15 hours. I have a p.i.t.a cervix that I call my cervix of steel lol. I am a bit bummed about no vbac but I am ok with another cesarian. He does not use staples anymore and that really excites me! The staples last time were what made me hurt and other than those I did excellent. I am very excited that she will be here Tuesday! The next 6 days are going to drag by! My sister is going to take a small vacation next week to help me out with getting Z to and from school and my step kids should be here to so it all works out and i'm excited. I asked him how long a repeat takes since Z was an emercency and I was in and out within 20 mins and he said it only takes him 40 mins to do the whole procedure I am a little bummed because my mom goes back to work that day and I know she is upset about it, I can tell by the look on her face when I was talking about it but by the time I get in and get ready and they do the procedure and I recover and they get Maya ready she will be getting off work within a couple hours. She would only be able to wait around anyways since only DH is able to be in the OR with me. I really wish she could be there when I am done but I completely understand and if she can work it out that would be awesome for her to be there and if not then she will just come a couple hours later.
I know this was all over the place but I was trying to remember everything lol. Hope it all made sense.
