we will bve induceing TRuesday if we don't have this babe before
1. Theo has serious placenta issues and this pregancy is follwing that same path
2. in 3.5 weeks the baby gorwth was insig -- the legs did not grow at all, the stomach less and the head not enough ..... so we are starting to look asymital (what happend to T) and that is a sign on the placenta failing
3. in 3.5 baby weight -- on same machine, with the doc doing th US -- went from 4 pounds 11 oz to 5 pounds 4 oz .. not nearly the gorwth we should see, and not nearly the growth this baby had show between US before
4. when we hit week 39 (Tuesday) and know the lung are done -- then there is no more added benift to keeping the baby in the womb.
Granted we don't KNOW the plancta is failing, buttttttttttt is it a risk to take ? Based on Theo we all say no --
The only reason we didn't discuss induction Firday -- and have till Tue -- is cuz the fliud is good and Theo was healthy .. thus i have a track record of small helathy babies.
I do not like the idea of induction -- but i also won't take any potintal risk with my baby just to be natural or cuz i dread Pit ... Baby come first.... yes even the OB admit that there is little real concern, but there IS concern ....here is the other thread about it
... didn't mean to confuse anyone with this thread ... sorry.
The concern is not huge, but it is there and i don't see the benfit to me or baby to argueing the induction .....
the OB agrees maybe i am just done cooking at week 38, but maybe ther eis an issues -- i can't live with that risk.
it is 6 pm here, i walked for na hour, used the pump two more times .. still nothing
starting to get really discouraged.
Going to try to get DH to go wal anouther hour with me -- then I am thinking when I or DH get Theo to sleep -- i may go for teh castor oil ... and hopefully labor at home over night and leave in teh am before Theo gets up, so we can have the baby -- i hope -- tomorrow in time for DH to be home to go to bed with Theo tomorrow night
