So I'm 40 wks 6 days pregnant and counting! I can't believe this. I was so confident that I wouldn't go past my due date. Haha
Met with my doctor this past Friday, he wants to induce at 42 wks, which is a week away. I'm curious as to whether labor will come naturally for me, or I'll have to schedule it. My fear is that Q will be a mammoth baby! That doesn't sound fun! I go to the docs again this Friday, and they want to do a few tests? Not sure why, but I think it's procedure if they are going to induce.
I could have induced at 41 wks, but I opted to wait till 42 wks. I want labor to come naturally and in order to do 41 wks, they wanted to take lung fluid samples from Q to check his maturity. (by using a huge needle... Ugh) And that sounded unnecessary to me.
So here I am. In all my big beached-whale glory. Waiting on this child and my cervix! ( I was checked last Friday, and I'm still at 1 cm. Say whaaaaaat? )
