So Kaylee is measuring 6lbs 3oz - wahooo!! She is already bigger than DS was at birth he was 5lb's 12oz) My pressures are still high - but steady so my ob is very hopeful for the 36 week goal! He did the fun "swab" today, so we'll see if I have strep B again. And he did do a cervix check - normal his nurse said they do it at 36 but since i'm going to be induced then he wanted to start checks now - still VERY high and VERY closed

All in all a really good appt. The only bummer thing is that i can only take 2 doses of extra strength Tylenol a day for my headache's - bummer

They typically only do inductions durring the week - they don't like to do them on the weekend - unless it's an emergency...So If we reach my 36 week goal - since it's thurs/friday - i will probably be induced the following Monday -which is August 9th When i asked my ob today so we could do some planning he said when we get closer if we make it there will schedule the date

I'm super excited - but i still can't believe it too! It's hard to grasp - after having a few losses in a row and then such a rough first trimester and being so paranoid about the 3rd - t's hard to believe she's doing ok in there I can't wait to meet her.

I can't believe we'll all be having babies soon!

Great appt!! She sounds like she'll be a nice little chunker! My DD was 5 lb 13 oz at 39 weeks I know you can make it to 36 weeks!! Only 2 more weeks... and you'll have your little girl in your arms!

I am just grinning from ear to ear!!! It sounds like she's SO big already I remember reading somewhere that if everything looks good, they like baby to be more than 5 pounds to go home, and she's already hit that milestone

Will they do an amnio before inducing to see if her lungs are mature, or will they induce at 36 weeks no matter what (i.e. if your bp is holding steady and you are still closed up tight)

Thanks!

I know i can't believe how big she is - that she is bigger than DS already!

If i make it to 36 weeks they won't do amnio to check lung maturity - At the BPP's they've been checking her practice breathing - and she is doing it like a champ! And yes, they will induce at 36 weeks no matter what, is my understanding - even with my blood pressure holding steady - it's high and steady - which can cause stress and reduced blood flow to baby on-top of my SLE which already made me high risk...and paranoid - lol . Since they don't induce on the weekend - i'll be 36 weeks and a few days if the pressures stay where they are.

DS was in the NICU most likely because he was a boy, poor guy - they say that girls always do better at the 35 and 36 week mark and typically just go home.
