Thanks so much for all of your replies... you have reinforced what is in my heart, which is that we just aren't ready yet....
Ligmom: i was told a few weeks ago (by another doctor in the practice) that my bishop score was a 3. I am not sure what my station and cervical position are... maybe i am picking up more points there? i have just printed the Bishop scoring sheet, i will take it in with me next week.
We had an ultrasound done 3 weeks ago, which placed him in the 63rd percentile for size. i know how inaccurate ultrasounds are for this, so we have refused a follow up ultrasound. maybe we should have one done to see what position he is in though... he is not breech but his back is on the right side of my body most of the time. Am currently reading about fetal positioning. anyway she thinks he is well above that 63rd percentile now. she's never said one word about my weight gain, actually...
MsMary: my first prednisone pack was a really low dose (4 mg) in a 6 or 7 day dosepack. i started it maybe only 10 days ago. my big spurt of weight gain was around week 35, just about when PUPPS hit
: . i will check into the claritin/pepcid thing.
Blueviolet: what you are saying makes total sense. when i am walking around it feels like he is pressing right on my cervix, only to have him "float away" when i lie down.
anothermama: it's funny, my brother and i were both little babies. 5 lbs 5 oz. my dh was an 8 pounder. when i first interviewed my doctor she said she would let a pregnancy go to 42 weeks. we will have to see what she says now.
I am going to cancel the Tuesday induction! Thanks again, you guys are awesome.
