Update:C-section scheduled for ThursUpdate: Lucas arrived via c-section this past Thursday (Friendlymama - are you on for this upcoming Thursday?). My practice deemed it the safest route to go, and, being a pretty nervous person where medical matters are concerned (and married to an even more nervous doctor's son!) we decided it was the best thing to do. All went well, although I found the procedure a little scary and very uncomfortable, and was pretty loopy on meds for the first day of Lucas's life. Not ideal, not what I imagined, but I am mostly just glad he - and me - are doing well. We left the hospital on Sunday and have settled in at home. He is a small guy, though not as small as we expected him to be - he was 6 lbs. 14 oz. and 19" at birth, and was 6lbs.8oz. and 18" at his first pediatrician visit today (we're pretty sure he hasnt shrunk! Someone's measurement must have been off a bit). He was virtually folded in half at birth and his legs havent fully straightened yet, but they're getting there.
It was wierd to log in here and be on "the other side" - no longer pregnant!
Hope everyone else is doing well. Thanks for the advice and good wishes. Andie
