So... you would think that I would get around to making this thread sometime before I am 38weeks and 6 days... but nah... I'll just start now! lol
But anyhow, I have been going to the reg dr appts every wednesday (along with 2x/wk hospital visits for NST and BP monitoring) and this past wednesday when I went in my bp was slightly elevated (143/80?) and I was still only 50% effaced and 1 cm dilated (no change from the previous week) but he decided he wanted to send me immediately to the hospital for NST and BPP and to possibly be induced (umm, what?!) So, I reluctantly went. My bp there was perfect, the baby was great, urine had no protein, and blood work was normal as well (as it always has been!). When I finally get to leave, the nurse tells me that he wants me to come back again for the same tests on Fri or Sat and then back on Monday to be induced! I have repeatedly told him that I do not want to be induced unless medically necessary. I do not see the medical reasoning behind this induction so I didn't schedule it and I called the office instead. After a little bit of phone tag they call me to say that they don't want to risk another high bp reading at the office and have me lose the baby. Okay, first, my bp is only slightly elevated not high and second it's only elevated AT YOUR OFFICE, but at the hospital (& home) it's fine! But even still, with EVERY test coming back normal, fine, perfect, etc, that is a hell of a jump! Is it not?
Anyway, I discussed it with my husband and we agreed that we are fine with being induced at that time. It's only a few days before my due date (and it means I don't have to go back to this office! *bonus*) and then we are also able to plan things out a little more specifically. So as long as the baby doesn't change the plans, we will be induced Monday at 7pm. I'll hopefully be holding my little guy by Tuesday (which is also my big brothers birthday!). <3 <3 <3
Today is also my last day at work. I'm a little sad about that... I'm going to miss seeing everyone each day. I'll be in building on Saturday though for a massage! woo hoo! (bc I missed the one I had scheduled on Wed.) so that'll be nice.
Well, that is all for now. But I'll post more updates as I go from here.
