37 Week Progress Report

I'm back from another lovely appointment with the OB, getting pretty comfortable there now since I go weekly.

- I lost 3 pounds, so the freak out over gaining 4 pounds in a week at my last appointment was for nothing.

-No progress with the cervix, still 2cm dilated and 50% effaced.

BUT

Baby is now measuring at 40 weeks, so 3 weeks ahead. My Dr. decided that at my next appointment they will do a growth u/s to determine her size, and schedule an induction at 39 weeks (if she doenst come sooner). Depending on her size, we may schedule a c-section being that Kay was only 7lbs. 3oz. and I pushed for 3 hours to get her out. And I mean I barely got her out!! I don't think my body could handle a baby much bigger that that.

So hopefully she isn't too big because like I have said before I would really like to avoid having a c-section.

I'll know more next week! That is unless of course she decides she wants to come on her own before then ; )

Good luck! With E they all thought he was gonna be this HUGE baby. We had a c/s scheduled almost two months in advance cause the doctor was sooo sure we needed it. I even measured 4 weeks ahead for quite some time. Then the u/s was done at 36 weeks and he was a whopping 6lbs even. At delivery- 6.7. I just had a ton of fluid so that's why I measured so big. Hopefully that's the case for you too!!

Oh my, we could both end up with c-sections! Hopefully you won't end up with an estimated 10 pounder like me though!
