Good news- they also had me do a NST and everything was fine. I didn't know that was on the adgenda today, but it was really no biggie. Anyway, I was a "good 1 cm " and 60% efaced. The doctor was able to touch the baby's head without any problem, she said he's not fully engaged, but close!!
Bad news- more talk of induction. They still want me to do the 38 week ultrasound, so I scheduled it, but since I have to go to another office for it I scheduled it as far off as possible, not until the 27th. I am hoping that I will already be holding the baby by then!! Thank goodness for the holidays, they made it easy to put off the appointment with the office being closed. If he is measuring 8 1/2 pounds or more they will want to induce. I don't know if there will be any way to talk them out of that, we'll cross that bridge when we come to it. I am just trying to stave everything off as long as possible and not stress out about the details ahead of time.
DH and I are going to put serious effort into convincing this baby to come this weekend, i.e.- 3 times in 24 hours, lots of pineapple (even though it's not such a great idea with my sugar problems), some champange, and lots of walking. I also have some cohosh I can start taking, but I think I will wait until crunch time (actually having an induction scheduled) before I will start that.
That's the scoop!!
