I went to the doc this morning for my last ultrasound! We are getting so close!
Everything looked great with the ultrasound and according to measurements, Evelyn is weighing in at 5 lb. 15 oz., so bigger than SK was at birth! We are so happy to have had a healthy pregnancy this time around with no complications or scares. What a blessing that has been! So now we wait and see when this little girl decides to make her appearance. I think it would be fun to have her be Michael's birthday present (meaning this sat.) but not looking likely :)
But...wouldn't that be cool. I mean, SK came on Father's Day, it just seems fitting to have Evelyn arrive on his birthday!
I am full term now, which is exciting. My doctor asked today our thoughts on induction. He is fine with either way, to induce or to not. There's a lot to weigh into this.... like being able to plan out care for SK better, and inducing on a day that Michael doesn't have a full load of classes, and knowing that my doctor will be the one there to deliver. But on the other side of the coin, I liked going into labor with Sk, and I knew my body was ready, and delivery went fairly smoothly....oh....decisions...
We wouldn't necessarily induce early or more than a week before due date, but it is something to consider as we get closer.
Let's go ahead and take a poll too on when this little girl's birthday will be and her weight for fun?
What do you think?
No matter how or when this all goes down, I am excited to meet this little girl and have her in my arms!
**Funny side note....
I was looking online this last weekend at ways to induce labor yourself and it is quite funny the ideas out there on the internet. I already knew many of the ways that people say help get labor going, but some were new to me...
Did you ever hear galloping like a horse???? Yep.
And swinging on a swing.
Those were the two that made me laugh out loud and made Michael take the computer away from me :)
So if you see me around campus galloping to the playground then take a swing....don't look at me funny, just know I am trying everything to go into labor :) Ok....so maybe you can laugh at me and tell me I have lost my mind. I have, I know it.
