Just got back from mine.
My BP was a bit high today (133/70) but no protein in the urine or anything else. My ankles were pretty swollen last night after having a busy day, but it went down over night. I gained about 3 lbs this week, bringing me up to 161 lbs. Just over 30 gained in total.
My OB said, "You look very....pregnant". LOL. But I told him I think this baby is smaller than DS2. My fundal height was only 38 this week, and with DS2 at 40 weeks I had a fundal height of 45 cm! So this one is definitely smaller, or just lying quite differently. Cervix check today - he said I'm very soft. As opposed to thick and hard last week, so that is good! He thinks I will go on my own this time.
BUT, we did the induction papers up today incase it comes to that. Induction is set for Sunday June 9th if he hasn't come yet! He said he usually does 8 days past (I thought it was 10, but I guess not). I told him my mom was arriving on June 8th, so we decided to do it on the 9th. The end is in sight! I'd love to have him come on his own.....he's got 12 days!
I'm making major progress....towards an overdue baby!! Lol. I'm measuring two weeks behind so he's likely dropped a bit but otherwise I'm still only 1 cm and not any different than last week. Doc said if I make it to my appt next Tuesday, we'll make some decisions on when to induce because he doesn't like to go more than a week over (which I already knew based on my last baby). So likely we'd schedule towards the end of next week sometime. At least he's nice and comfy in there! I'm still sleeping like a rock too so no complaining from me other than that I'm getting excited to meet him
Yay for setting a date Sandra!! It's nice to have an end in sight Less than 2 weeks tops for both of us, woohoo! Sorry you aren't sleeping though, I haven't with either of my other 2 this late, but for whatever reason my body is loving sleep this time thank goodness! I went through pretty bad insomnia a few months ago but it went away.
I also had an appt today. I'm 40w 3 days by their records, and I only get until 41 w 4 days...so I have week. I'm not excited about induction, and DS1's birthday is next Wednesday and I don't want to mess up his birthday. I was only 1 centimeter and 50 effaced, so I am worried about getting things going
That's crazy that you only get a week past your dd to go on your own. I know plenty of babies that arrive a couple weeks late all on their own. Why not just do a little extra monitoring and let them come on their own??? It probably all comes down to "being sued." The babies that I know that were "allowed" to go 2-3 weeks late were home births, and midwives seem to be more "let your body have the baby which it chooses."
Ashley, I've been having some insomnia issues the past week too. I get up to pee, and the next thing I know I'm sitting at the computer for a half hour, then laying awake in bed for an hour.
