Dr. Appt. Update!!!

ok ladies I know I've been asking lots of questions lately and here are the answers I got today from my doctor. The bleeding I had yesterday is my mucous plug breaking up. I am 2cm now instead of 1 like I was on Tuesday. The pain in my abdomen is my fibroid but everything is good there. I have to see my docs midwife on Monday and have an ultrasound to check baby's size because he is quite large . And if I don't go into labor naturally by the time he gets back into town on the 23rd I get to pick a day that week to be induced!!! YAY!!!! I'm so excited but have lots to do in the meantime!! We are thinking about getting induced the night of the 24th. Our 4 year old son picked the 25th as the new baby's birthday so we think that should be the day!!!

  • How far along are you?
    Sounds like you are making great progress.
    I'm sorry you have a medical complication that needs an induction. I hope you have a wonderful labor.
    Best wishes.

  • i am somewhere between 37 and 39 weeks. I have been having pre term labor since April when I was 5 months. I'm not worried about the induction. I was induced with my first child because he was soooo big. This one is already about 2 weeks ahead in size so it's time for him to come out. I was induced with my first also because I was in labor and contracting but wouldnt dilate. Doc thinks this is whats best for me and baby he doesnt want to risk me having a csection either because I am very tiny. And I don't have high blood pressure or gestational diabetes. I just have big babies. My son was 9lbs and this one is either very close to that size or bigger!! AH!! lol thanks though everyone I am sooooo excited!
