Bah! :)
Still here... Still pregnant...
My dr. sent me for a growth scan u/s because she was feeling like the baby was 'exceptionally small' (like under 6lbs) & hadn't grown in weeks. That made me a little nervous, but when i went for the scan, baby measured right on for growth. Fluid levels were perfect & baby got an 8/8 on the biophysical profile. My doctor said i'm just really really good at hiding the baby ~ as by her measurements, i'm only measuring 35 weeks. The only discouraging thing is that now i'm 5 days past "the date", there is talk of induction ~ *and* they want me to go for fluid scans every 4 days that i'm over till i hit 41 weeks 4 days, which is their outside limit... *sigh*... i asked her how thy induce here & she said they break your water & then wait 1-2 hrs to see if you go into labour on your own... That's just not for me. i want the baby to come when it's the right time & on it's own ~ without medical intervention. The next scan they want me to get is supposed to be on Friday... i'm up in the air over whether i'll refuse it or not. i'm trying not to decide anything.. y'know "sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof" ~ hoping baby comes on it's own before Friday.
At the u/s, baby was too big to make out much, but we did get one little glimps of a sweet little face. Just a moment... Made both of our hearts just stop. Neil said he felt like he could just reach in there. Baby looked to me like it had really soft features... i could be biased, but i think this is going to be a cute one...
