Wish me luck! *UPDATE*

Doctor appointment in the AM! We go for the ultrasound to measure how big the baby is (I can tell ya, he's big! I am measuring full term already.) at 8:30am.

Then due to the swelling and high blood pressure, I will have a non stress test and get the results of the 24 hour urine test and bloodwork from Saturday.

Based on all of that, the doctor will make the decision about what we do from here. I'm heading in with my bags packed just in case

If I have the baby, expect me back online with a LOT of questions ladies: I have not CD a newborn before

Re: Wish me luck!

Well, the ultrasound went well. The baby weighs about 7lbs, and he was so cute! We got a 4D picture while we were there. The only thing negative was that I have way too much amniotic fluid (had that at the end with Christopher too).

Then the doctor appt. My 24 hour urine came back OK and the bloodwork. So on to the non stress test.

The baby was very active during the test for the most part, but he calmed down and his heart rate went down pretty low for about 3 minutes. The doctor wasn't happy with that.

So we have to go back tomorrow for another one. He said that the baby could be under some stress, and if the same thing happens again tomorrow, it's the baby's birthday.

I feel good that at least he is pretty big in there - the 7lbs made me feel a lot better. I also got yelled at because the doctor said that my feet and legs don't lie...I haven't been resting enough, and he was not happy with that either. At least DH was there to back me up and told him that I really am resting as much as I can during the day until he goes off to work at 3.

If you had any issues w/ your scar itching or anything w/ anaesthesia last time, be sure to tell them so they can fix it this time! Best wishes! (They used a new type of sutures w/ my 2nd, and my scar is smaller and doesn't itch!)
