update, ultrasound today
Tue, 04-09-2013 - 8:33pm

Well, I'm 38 weeks and had an ultrasound today to see how big baby is and if I need a c-section.  Baby is only measuring 7 lbs 12 oz so my midwife is not pushing the csection issue.  She does not however want me to go passed 40 weeks because then the baby will start to be getting to big.  We talked about inducing however she agreed to let us wait another week and see if baby comes on her own.  We will have an appointment next tuesday and discuss inducing on Wednesday or Thursday.  She recommended Wednesday because that is her on call day and I would definitely get her for the delivery :)  I want her there so I will likely go with that.  I'm just hoping my little girl comes on her own before that!
