I had a doctor appointment today - was there from 11am to about 4:30pm. I wrote a detailed blog on my Pregnancy Blog for those of you who want to read in detail.
But everything is fine. I just had a routine appointment and found out I was still not progressing, no signs of labor. She did an ultrasound and found that my placenta was callussing and already starting to deteriorate, so she was concerned about the baby. My fluid level was at a 7 too, which is the lowest on the "normal" range. (and considering it was high at my 28 wk ultrasound, she was concerned - it was 19 then).
So within a few minutes she went from "You're going to go into labor when your body tells you to even if you're 10 days overdue", to "I'm scheduling you for an inducement on the 12th and you are going over to the hospital today to get a non-stress test done on the baby."
Had the NS-test done, baby is fine. Active. Getting enough oxygen from placenta so that is good. They are concerned about fluid though. Have to get another NS test done on Tuesday. Have another Dr Appt on Wed to re-assess if induction is necessary. If fluid has gone down (among several other factors), I will be induced on Thursday the 12th.
Also found out I have been having contractions but never knew it. I had 6 small ones in an hour. I had been having them for months but just didn't know what they were.
Not really wanting to be induced though - after learning it would most likely result in Csection. So pray for me that my body will go into labor on its own soon. Thanks everyone.
