On monday i had a doctor's appointment, it was pretty exciting. I asked the doctor what his guess was on how much the baby weighed and he said it was somewhere between 7 and 3/4 pounds and 8 pounds. Lets hope she doesn't gain any more weight... I also learned that i am dialted to 1 cm and i'm 60% effaced. Wooo Hooo! I'm making some sort of progress. I know it doesn't mean much but its better than not being dilated at all.
I asked my doctor what his feelings were on induction. I asked because my mom is flying into town and i want her to be here when the baby is born, rather than her just sitting around with me still being pregnant. He said that because i am making progress that next week he could probably do an induction, he would just have to check with the hospital. I was freaking out at this point because i wasn't expecting him to give the induction "green light" until i was past my due date. He said that Wednesday of next week would work best, and if not then he would try friday. I left his office not knowing what exactly we had planned, but i was excited that this baby might be coming next week. Two hours later i got a call from him saying that there was an opening at the hospital on Wednesday September 2nd at 6:00am, and that they were holding the spot for me!!!!!!
So if this little one stays put for the next week then i will be induced the morning of the 2nd!
One week from tomorrow....
