Update from appt today

Today was my appt and ultrasound.

Ultrasound- Carter is measuring at 38 weeks and estimated weight is 7.1 pounds. Doctor is pleased with the way he looks so no induction today. Blood flow to him wasn't what it should be yet not enough to cause him any harm so I get to carry him longer. He had his hands up by his face during the ultrasound but put them down long enough to show off some major chubby cheeks. He also has hair! We saw a little bit of fuzz on his head!

Appt- My group b came back negative! What a relief! My bp has also come down thanks to my compliance with bedrest....which I am to remain on for the rest of this pregnancy. I had more labs drawn today too. I'm on twice weekly appts until delivery. I'm dilated a fingertip and 50% effaced. If I go in labor on my own she won't stop it. We will schedule my induction at my next appt on Tuesday. So basically this pregnancy will be over in two weeks! I can't believe this is almost over.

Congrats on a great appt! Can I ask why they're inducing you?

Induction is for the compromised blood flow to him. It is only 'ok' for now but she doesn't want to take any chances with depriving him of the blood flow he needs to come out healthy and without any damage to his organs or brain. I have twice weekly appointments with ultrasound to check the flow and if it changes at all I will be induced that day. She really wants me to make it to 38 weeks if possible.

I'm glad you are GBS - . It is such a pain!

I'm glad he looks good, gratz on the chubby cheeks and hair! I hope these two weeks of bed rest aren't too bad. You might get that predicted halloween baby after all!

Glad you had a good appointment & GBS was -. Hope you can keep up the bedrest it obviously agrees with you both. It's great your doctor is taking such good care with biweekly appts and all. Bake baby bake!
