~I had my 35 week check up Tuesday.
~I was up 5 pounds, damn Christmas cookies! I've gained 45 so far total, whatever!
~Still not dilated.
~50% effaced! And Annabel is head down, -3 station. Annika's head was never at a station last time, she was always in my hip bone to the side!
~So here's the deal, my doctor canceled my January 9th c-section because "we aren't going to make it till then, or even January".
~If I have contractions again we're just going to do the c-section. I need to have 6 in one hour.
~If I'm dilated at all next appointment or 100% effaced we'll do the c-section.
~I wasn't supposed to start weekly appointments yet but I am now!
~The doctor thinks she's close to 8 pounds already!!! Eekkk!!!
~Even though I'm 35 weeks I measure at 39.
~The doctor's biggest fear is that since I am a repeat c-section and my last c-section was barely 2 years ago he doesn't want me getting too big or having too many contractions.
~My theory, even though next week I'm 36 weeks (just a few days shy of 37) he's going to do my c-section either after his appointments for the day on Tuesday or Wednesday morning in order to get me home for Christmas or to prevent me being an emergency c-section on Christmas Day. He told me he'd rather I not be an emergency situation.
~So it looks like we may be having a December baby!! He wouldn't even allow me to schedule any appointments further ahead than December 27th and usually they allow you schedule them all advance when you're this close.
~I'm only have Braxton Hicks contractions lately. I do feel pressure though, lots of it, so I'm curious to see where we are on Tuesday.
