    Default 41 week appointment XP from April

    So had my 41 week 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 on the phone, 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.

    Aweeee, he sounds so sweet!!!!! Sorry to hear about the low fluids but glad they didn't force you into being induced. I wonder if you increase your water intake if that will help with the fluid?

    Cool! I just read about it on the April board. I hope all is well; so exciting! She gives me strength to say "no" to induction
