This past week, the doctor began checking me to see how I am progressing. My belly is measuring big, and his comment was “Wow! This baby’s big!” Not really something you want to hear right before you go into labor.
He said that even though I am having contractions, lower back pain, pelvic pressure and often times timeable contractions, he didn’t think that we would have this baby for another couple of weeks. 😦 He did say that I was at a +1 station, so that is positive. Hopefully this week will bring more changes.
Due to the estimated size of the baby, my OBGYN feels that it would be good to have another ultrasound this week to see about how big the baby is. I told him that I was concerned with the size of the baby and if all possible, would prefer to have the baby sooner rather than later to avoid additional complications. He smiled, mentioned that there is always an escape hatch if the baby was too big and told me that we will know more next week. I really want to avoid a C-section at all costs, especially since I had such a wonderful delivery with Jack. I guess we will know more this week.
