So this morning I had my last ultrasound.
Good news is that everything looks great. Heart looks good, lungs & other organs look good, we got a cute profile pic of him with his hand up by his face (I will upload it when I can) and the tech was able to get all the views and pics she needed. It was funny, at the end she was trying to get him to move his hand out of his face so she was poking my stomach all over and we saw him wiggling around on screen. lol. Poor kid was like "LET ME SLEEEEEP crazy woman" lol ...
And now for the big thing - his size. Because DS was so big (an oz and a half shy of 10 lbs) and I had all the complications, thats why I am going to have a Csec next week. However... the computer estimated his weight at 6lbs1oz today.
I'm really unsure of going into a early Csec in one week to have a SIX POUND baby? Why do that when I can wait... and either go into labor on my own, OR if my BP spikes or something happens, go for a Csection later. ... I was comfortable with a Csec next week. But now knowing hes small, I'm not sure. Part of me wants to not have a Csec next week. And then theres the creeping suspicion that this is EXACTLY happened LAST TIME... they said he'd be small and he wasnt.
The tech said (and i quote) "If hes a 10 lbs baby I need to go back to school"...
Odd thing - I *think* she might have been the same tech who said the SAME thing for DS last time around. lol. weird... she said she recognized me and asked if it was my 2nd pregnancy and I said yes... so I'm sure shes done an u/s before on me.
Anyway, now I'm confused. I'm taking DH with me tomorrow to see my doc for my 37 week appt, and we'll be having a long conversation about all this. I'm really not sure what to do right now.
My line of thinking right now is... if both me and baby are healthy, why not leave me and see what happens. If something goes wrong and I need to be induced, just do a Csec instead of induction (since it was so horrible last time). If I go into labor on my own and dont progress or have problems, I'll skip to a Csec rather than having all the complications. But give me a chance to see if I go into labor...
I hate this feeling of being unsure and not knowing and second guessing.
thanks for listening to my rant. Thoughts/comments welcome!
