I had an OB appointment this morning. All is well, though it doesn't seem that Baby's head is down yet. The doc said she's not too concerned, since he still has time and space to wiggle his way down there. I was rather relieved to hear that I haven't dilated a single bit, which was somewhat surprising considering the number of contractions I've had over the last couple of months! Still, it doesn't seem that we need to be concerned about me going into extremely early labor!
Our ultrasound is next Wednesday (to monitor Baby's kidney), and then I'll be back at the OB's on March 13. The doctor told me that if my cervix is favorable, they allow women to choose to be induced at 39 weeks. Since this is my 5th child, she is quite sure things would be "favorable," but I think I'll take a pass on an induction, thank you very much. The little bit of pitocin I got with Arden was enough to send me over the edge...I can't imagine choosing to be induced before my due date!! I do want to have this baby early...frankly, I'm tired of being pregnant! But I prefer to let nature take its course. God's timing is perfect!
