I had my appointment this morning following up on my ultrasound from yesterday and my normal weekly appt. She was not concerned with his weight right now, which is good but I am, lol! She said that he weighed 6 pounds 10 oz! The u/s tech mentioned he was almost 7 pounds. My ob did say that these u/s can be off under or over, so at the same time, who knows how big he is!
Good thing is he is still head down and in position. She could feel his head (and mentioned it was right on my bladder but I could have already told you that!) Another good thing was that his fluid was good! It was under 10 but still at a good amount! YAY!
That was the good news, but I left really confused. I asked questions but once I left I had 799 more. Basically, she said that the baby might not fit through the birth canal. I am right on the cusp and the only way to know if he will fit is when I am in labor. This worries me for several reasons. The first one is obvious--the whole possibility of a c-section. Then, what if I go through 20 hours of labor to find out that the baby is in distress or doesn't fit and now I need an emergency c-section. Maybe none of this will be needed and I plan to talk to her more in-depth about it next week, but I am uneasy not knowing the final outcome. I am too much of a planner to not know but IF I HAVE to have a c-section, I have to mentally prepare myself for that. I did not feel like she steered me towards either but I am sure it depends on his size as well. If he is going to be 8+ pounds, it's going to be more difficult than if he was 7, which we already know he is near. It is a wait and see kind of thing, and I am just not happy about that. I can't change what my body can and cannot do, and I have to accept that. I also have to accept that I can't plan everything!
The whole surgery while I am awake freaks me out. Granted women do it everyday, but at the same time there are other things that can come into play. Plus, this was not part of my plan. I guess it really goes to show you how much you try to plan, things can always change. First lesson in being a parent, lol!
So, here I am again, waiting. :) What I do need to focus on is that I get to meet my baby soon!
On the nursery front, I am ALMOST done (talk about cutting it close!) I finally ordered the fabric and it should be here any day. I ordered something else too and one these two things are up and ready to go, his room will be done!
Today marks less than 27 days till my due date! Yipeeeee!
