37 Week Update

So my OB is out sick... for the next 3 months.

Apparently he has some kind of terrible hearing problem & is now being treated at the Mayo Clinic. Pray for him! He's a great doctor & a very nice man.

So I saw a different doctor today, who I will probably see the rest of the time... interesting to get a "new" perspective on things.

First, I actually lost 1/2 a pound since last week, my BP was 120/80, my belly was measuring a little big this time, which probably just means the baby has moved positions. The baby's heart rate was 150 and everything else looked good.

There was no change in dilation/effacement from last week.

The doctor I saw today expressed a lot of disgust with the fact that "they" let me go so long after the due date with Ian and then ended up with so many complications... and he said, "If Aaron hadn't needed to be induced for his health reasons, they would've let you go again and had another 9 pound baby."

So... he said we're looking at maybe inducing a week early if I'm still pregnant at that point. I told him that sounded good to me. ;-) He said, "I'm assuming, since you had an epidural both times before that you're going to have one this time too, and if they're going to hook you up, we might as well help you out on the size of the baby."

So that's fine.

It was a good appointment. I'm pretty sure Roger's going to be home from his trip before it's baby time.

I'm going to take a belly picture later, hopefully!
