It looks like I'll be having a baby tomorrow. I can't say I'm quite ready, I'd like to wait a few more days, but by the end my 2 1/2 hour, 39 week check-up today, the nurse informed me with a huge smile on her face that I'd be coming in tomorrow morning to be induced. Let's just say at the time my smile did not match hers, but now that I've had a few hours to let it settle, I'm really looking forward to holding our little baby girl by tomorrow night.
I've measured small most of pregnancy and did a non-stress test and growth ultrasound at 32 weeks only to find that everything was just peachy. Today my doctor ordered another non-stress test and growth ultrasound that revealed low levels of amniotic fluid and a small baby in the 20th percentile. The two coupled together apparently means time for baby to be born. This isn't an emergency by any means and I'm not worried about delivering an unhealthy baby, but my doctor worries about the fluid getting even lower which could be bad for baby.
I've never liked the idea of being induced, so my doc stripped my membranes and hopefully that will put me into labor first. It seemed to work with Sage. I was in labor only a few hours after she stripped my membranes back then, so maybe I can go into labor without the aid of pitossin.
Wish me luck!
