SO we arrived at the appt and went back for the ultrasound. Baby measured to be about 7 lbs 3 oz(though we know this could be totally wrong) fluid was good, baby is totally head down, measuring right on.heartbeat was 130 (which was lower than the normal 140 that it has been) We then waited forever in the waiting room and they called me back finally. After going back my weight was back up and my blood pressure was 120/80. (I have no idea how) I then waited FOREVER for the dr to come in. When he came in the first thing he said was "so where is this baby?!" I told him I'd like to know the same thing. He looked over my file (I had only seen this dr once) and he said that everything looked good but I did have a history of blood pressure issues and migraines.. and he said being only a couple days away from due date was I opposed to induction. (which yes I have been, however the pain and fear of falling when I walk outweighed my oppostiion) He also said that the longer we went the harder labor would be (after he checked to see where baby's head was) He said he was goign to put on there that the induction was due to blood pressure issues and told me that between us we knew it was fine today and that the hospital will just give him crap if I get there and its fine and not give me a hard time. So he put in for induction at next possible time. That time ended up being Thursday which is baby's due date. I am really glad that we didnt wait until Thurs to decide bc then it would be next week some time. so unless baby changes his mind between now and then Thurs morning at 7:15 it is as long as there are beds available. Im now super nervous bc I dont like the idea of having a specific time/date but at the same time Im super excited that the light at the end of hte tunnel is here......

and I mentioned dtd to DH today and said it might help get things going sooner than Thurs and he seems opposed. he is terrified that I would have the baby in the car on the way to the hospital!

LOL about DH thinking you will have the baby in the car!! Men!! I was induced with my second dd... for no particular reason other than already being 4cm dilated, and not wanting to have the baby on Christmas day, lol. Lame huh. Anyway, I enjoyed having a set "time" to go in. It worked out well.

Yay for good blood pressure...that is good news for you and baby. Exciting to have a date scheduled, maybe baby will decide not to wait even that long. Either way you'll be meeting your little guy soon!! Smile
