So today was my 37 week appt.
Based on the ultrasound from yesterday she canceled the c/s. I was half expecting a bit of discussion or debate about it, but she read the report first thing and said its such a small size compared to DS that theres no point to a early c/s. And that was that. YAY! I'm so relieved!
Otherwise things look good. BP was 132/74, babys HB was 137-140, and I gained 1.5 lbs this week. I'm measuring 35 weeks. Strange since I was measuring 37.5 a couple weeks ago. But Baby has dropped and is "really low" based on her feeling my stomach. She didnt do an internal as I dont have any signs of labor.
So the plan now is to go into labor naturally. If things go wrong, then I'll talk to whoever is on call about a Csec if needed. I said that I didnt want another induction after my horrible one, so if I go past due date and they want to induce for some medical reason then she will get me a Csec if I still want it. lol that was my deal today
Only bad part is now my doc is on vacation for 3 weeks.... boooooo! So I get to see another doc (the one she shares the office with) for the next 3 weeks (basically until my due date). If I dont go into labor by Aug 8 (41 weeks) then she is back and I have an appt with her to figure things out from there.
So, now I have to start actually thinking about labor and delivery again, and relaxation/meditation techniques. Such a switch in mindset from a few weeks ago when I was dealing with all the administrative BS to book this Csec that wont happen lol!!
Oh and the cold/cough and the breathlessness is because my right lung has a LOT of fluid in it. She gave me an antibiotic and said if I dont get better in 2-3 days I need to go to a walkin clinic and get it looked at and try another med. So send T&Ps and vibes my way plz!
