I had my 37 week appointment today and my BP was pretty elevated. First and second reading was 166/110. They paniced and pulled my NST from this morning and saw my BP was fine. They used a different cuff and it was 142/88 which in their opinion is much better.

With that going on, plus my 11 pound weight gain in the past week and my swelling, she decided that it would be in my best interest to pull him next week unless I go into labor.

She measured my stomach and her response was "Good gravy! Look at your belly!!!!!!! I've never seen that before!" He was protruding in his little globe like status. We are used to it so I looked at her like she was nuts. Measurement was 42 weeks. So big baby, plus gestational diabetes, plus unstable BP made me a perfect candidate for early c section.

So tentatively next week another woodlander will be joining the team!!!! I am excited and SO nervous. I will know my official surgery start time tomorrow.

Thank you all for the kind thoughts. It's scary because I wasn't expecting anything like that. I figured today would be normal contractions, and silly naughty baby antics as usual. They think the big spike was just a random fluke and that the lower BP was accurate which is why they decided to wait. This pregnancy has been such and up and down roller coaster. I am really happy that this is my last one. I think my body is happy too.

Apparently, out here you have to jump through hoops to do a c section earlier than 39 weeks. I argued that I wouldn't mind trying for a VBAC, but of course that was shot down so fast I thought my head was going to spin.

I'm going to try to relax and have a peaceful weekend. My MIL just found out about next week so she is going about 100 miles a minute. Gotta do this gotta get that etc etc etc. As soon as we calm HER down I think we will all be okay LOL.
