Anybody left besides me? 41w2d
I saw the OB this morning, everything looks good. They did yet another ultrasound. Heartbeat, aminiotic fluid, muscle tone, movement, all look good. They said he was doing practice breaths as they scanned. His estimated weight is 9 lbs. 2 oz., but at this stage it is plus or minus 20%. The frustrating news is that I am not dilated or effaced at all! They suggested that is could be a case of cephalopelvic disproportion. I think doctors like to throw out that term....
Anyway, I really like and trust my OB and she wants me to talk to my MW about doing a possible induction on Monday, she wants to do a non-stress test that day for sure. I see my MW tomorrow. Wednesday is 42 weeks. That is the cut off for my homebirth here, and my OB is on call on Mondays. I don't want a hospital induction, but I would rather cut myself two days short to guarantee she be the one to do it (all of the others in her practice are very pro-intervention, where she is much more like my MW). Induction with me not even dilated or effaced doesn't sound promising to me so, I suppose, we are looking at a good chance of a section ultimately happening.
My husband is my source of sanity right now. He has told me to focus on this being my last day at work, and just enjoy that. So that is what I am doing.
Please come soon, baby!
