Last doctors Update before induction

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hubby and I just got back from my last check up! YEAH!!!

Things are pretty much the same according to my doctor, 2-3 cm dilated, 50% effaced. Baby is very low. And according to her she is "Overtaking you!" I guess she is a big girl! (Maybe too many treats??) I had lost a few pounds last time they weighed me from the anxiety of things, (changing doctors, going into labor, being hooked up for all kinds of tests and being monitored for days int he hospital) but my weight is back up to where it was, so I gained a total of 19 pounds.....baby is about 7 of that, if not more! Lol! My tummy is 35 cm. My U/s results came back great, right on for dates and my fluids are up at 12. She wanted to admit me into the hospital after the appointment to hook me up for a nst to monitor my contractions and then check my cervix after 4 hours, but I opted go home. She says it hasn't changed in a week, then why go through more tests, just to tell me it's the same after a few hours and then send me home anyways? So hubby and I came home and told her we'll go with our induction plans. She says "But you could go at any minute!!" But I explained that the last week and a half I could have gone at any minute and if things haven't changed with my cervix during that time, then I'll take my chances and be at home with my family and count on making it to Monday! ;0)
So that's my update!!
Please pray that I make it to Monday. I really want to have the birth plan that we have set in place so that I can have peace of mind and bring my daughter into the world in the best way that I can. :0)
