Being induced Tuesday morning! Finally, the end is in sight! lol

I have been so miserable and just DONE and ready to meet my little guy! And now it is finally time!

I went today for an ultrasound. I am 37 weeks and the baby is measuring at 39 already. They said he is about 8 lb 6 oz. Whoa! And my fluid is still too high. It was high at my 32 week ultrasound and I was diagnosed with polyhydramnios so that is what the ultrasound today was for ... to recheck it.

So since the baby is big and my fluid is still high, they scheduled me to be induced at 6am on Tuesday! I'll be 38 weeks and 2 days. He wanted to do it Monday but he said they would be shorter on staff over the weekend and Monday because of the holiday... and since I'm high risk, it would be safer to wait til Tuesday when everyone will be there.

I am so excited! But I'm also so IMPATIENT and wondering what I am gonna do with myself for the next 5 days. lol

Huh. Congrats. I hope it goes okay and he weighs what they think he does. What are the risks of high fluid levels? I've never heard of it before.

I'm not exactly sure what the risks are... I just know it can be dangerous if the fluid gets too high. Right now the symptoms it's causing me are shortness of breath and just feeling like my whole body is FULL. It is hard to walk without feeling like I'm gonna pee my pants because my uterus is pushing on my bladder so much... and I have been having really bad indigestion because of the pressure on my stomach. It's just VERY uncomfortable and can cause problems for the baby too. And I have no doubt that the baby is as big as they say, if not bigger. I have a tendency to have big babies and now I am diabetic so that increases the chance of having a big baby, too.

I have been induced with all of my kids and never had any problems so I'm sure it will go okay. I'm just glad it's gonna be over. lol

It's been pretty good. A few spikes here and there but the medicine they put me on seems to be helping.

For those wondering what the risks are.


Complications
By Mayo Clinic staff
Polyhydramnios is associated with:

Premature birth
Pregnancy-induced high blood pressure
Urinary tract infections during pregnancy
Premature rupture of membranes — when your water breaks early
Excess fetal growth
Placental abruption — when the placenta peels away from the inner wall of the uterus before delivery
Umbilical cord prolapse — when the umbilical cord drops into the vagina ahead of the baby
C-section delivery
Stillbirth
Heavy bleeding due to lack of uterine muscle tone after delivery
The earlier that polyhydramnios occurs in pregnancy and the greater the amount of excess amniotic fluid, the higher the risk of complications.

Lmao, I don't know. I feel that way and I'm 31 weeks and having a healthy pregnancy, bahaha. I don't mind yet. I googled it too! I was super curious. But thank you! I hope all goes well on Tuesday.

Hope everything is okay. Have they done anything to check baby's lung maturity? Always a worry with a forced birth before 39 weeks.
