It went well. I went in with a very open mind (this isn’t always my strong point). He checked me today and I am 2cm dilated but my cervix is high. I am not expecting to go into labor soon but you never know.
My blood pressure is up… way up. Even when laying on my side, it is still up. That, along with my intense generalized edema, is not good. I asked him if we could schedule a cesarean late in the week. Thankfully, he said Friday. I was so relieved he didn’t say Thursday. I explained that I want to give my body as much time as possible but we both agreed that my body is about done. He agreed that a few more days won’t make a difference either way and understands that I want to just hold out a bit longer. He is a great doctor!
Oh, I lost 3 pounds since Friday. That is actually odd because my swelling is really, really bad. My legs are so swollen that they are tight and my fingers and toes look like sausages. BAD!
Well, the final word… my baby will be here by Friday at the latest!!!!!!!!! Put your guesses in for what she will weigh and her length if you wanna. Not that it makes much difference, but Johnny was 6lb 7oz at 37w6d and 20.5 inches long.
Oh, Mike’s last day of work until after the new year is tomorrow. I think he is looking forward to having his birthday off this year (first time in forever). He is born on Christmas Eve. 🙂 He is going to go back to work on the 6th of January… the same day all the kids will be back in school.
