In the waiting...
It's all in Gods timing-I am 40 weeks 4 days and no sign of my little baby boy! The midwife sent me for a biophysical ultrasound Tuesday which he passed with an 8 out of 8 and we are very thankful. They are estimating his weight at 8lbs 15oz (give or take 21 oz). That is a BIG window but it forces us to make a difficult decision. With my prior c-section we didn't want to induce since there would be a higher risk of a repeat BUT if we wait too long he will just keep getting bigger which could very well result in a repeat as well. I go back to see the midwife tomorrow morning where we will discuss our options. Patty (the midwife) has told me to just pray for guidance! She has been a blessing to me during the whole pregnancy. My health has been fantastic other than early BH's in which she told me to stay off my feet as much as possible. It has been emotional though. My mother passed away in 2000 and not having her to call is very hard for me. She was there for the birth of my daughter and was the first one to hold her just because I didn't want to "break" her. HA! I have also been replaying my difficult delivery the last time and worried that this one will turn out the same way. Patty was wonderful in talking to me and calming my fears! So, we are in the waiting...praying that I will be heading to the hospital tonight instead of
the office tomorrow. Either way, he will be here soon :)
