So my hopes for a natural labor may not be possible, there's still some hope but I would most likely have to go into labor on my own before 39 weeks.

I started measuring ahead on my fundal height at 31 weeks by just a week. At my 33 week appointment they decided to do a growth scan. Baby girl was estimated at 5 lbs 14 oz at that point, which I know can be wrong, but it's still something the doctors really look at. At my 35 week appointment I was measuring 2 weeks ahead with coincides with the growth scan. Then at my appointment yesterday - 36 weeks- my fundal height is now measuring 3 weeks ahead at 39 weeks, I had sugar in my urine (two appointments in a row I guess now) and I've only had sugar in my urine one other time besides these and doctor did a feel around estimate and thinks baby is at least 7.5 lbs so I'll be having another growth scan next Tuesday, which I'm sure will put doctors in a frenzy - LOL and they will have me scheduled for induction at 39 weeks as this is what doctor was suggesting we do yesterday. Two good things are that Tilly has consistently passed her twice weekly NST's with flying colors and they will do a membrane sweep at 38 weeks. I've been bouncing on my exercise ball and drinking RRLT to help get my body ready and hopefully my 38 week sweep will put me into labor naturally. But if not I guess I'll be going in for an induction at 39 weeks.
