So went in today for a NST and a chat with my doctor. NST looks great (she's never had a problem passing that one) and I'm still scheduled to see the specialist tomorrow, but my doctor is inducing me on Wednesday. He said that we'll probably get an ear-full from the specialist wondering why I haven't been induced already, but that he thinks waiting until Wednesday is the best option right now. Baby cakes still loves to move around and her heart sounds great, so he said the benefits outweigh the risks as of yet, but we are walking a finer and finer tightrope everyday. The specialist will give us a better idea of what to expect in the delivery room -- the threshold she'll have for tolerating contractions, what we're looking at for specific nutrition needs, etc.

I'm glad we've come to a decision. But oh man. My MIL just bought me two preemie outfits. Holy Smokes - They are soooooo small! Having a strange time trying to wrap my mind around it all. She'll be born right before 37 weeks, so not much worry about lung development, it's mostly that she's going to be little. Very crazy, but I'll be thrilled to meet my girly before the week is over.

Thanks for all your guys' support!

Oh wow you are crusing right along! It sounds like you have a great team looking out for you and remember tiny doesn't mean unhealthy! Babies come in all sizes and yes yours will be a bit smaller, but you will be full term!

KUP and can't wait to hear your birth story

Yay at least things are progressing and you get to meet your little girl soon! I was told the same thing that Parker will likely just be very tiny and might have trouble controlling his temperature due to not having much of any fat stores. Sending tons of positive vibes your way for a quick and easy delivery Wednesday!!

I definitely hope so, but I guess we can't be sure. Doctor doesn't think that there is any reason why I wouldn't be, but we'll see...???

Yeah, I think that it's going to be lots of skin to skin time for us and the little ones. Exciting that Parker will be here on the 29th! And if you hear any good tips on dealing with pitocin, let me know!

Oh wow! What a busy & exciting week ahead of you! Crazy to think that youre baby girl will be here so soon! If you get a chance to let us know how the appointment went with the specialist please let us know ;-)

Lots of prayers your way for you and Baby Cakes.

(I've been induced twice...pitocin wasn't bad on me. Just brings on labor and contractions stronger for most. I know it did for me, but I managed just fine. Some drs can get pitocin happy and give too much too fast so maybe just see if they can start out really slow and then if nothing happens maybe slowly go up.)
