Not a May baby.
I had a doctor appointment this morning, accompanied by an ultrasound, and while I am now 2 cm, instead of just a measly 1 cm, dilated, there's still not much progress, so while it is still possible for me to go into labor on my own in the next day or so, it is unlikely. Thus, induction. Once again.
So, the plan is that I'll go check into the hospital tomorrow evening, and they'll start me on the first stage of the induction, which is Cervidil, and then Thursday morning begins the Pitocin. Most likely, then, he'll be born on Thursday, June 2nd.
I pretty much feel as I did when we confirmed that I'd be induced with Norah: Disappointed and frustrated that I'm not going into natural labor, but relieved that there is an end in sight. And the one advantage of induction is knowing when I'll be headed to the hospital, which is especially nice since we have to arrange for care for Norah since my mom flies home tomorrow.
Plus, I'll know to really savor my sleep tonight!
In other miscellaneous news: Caleb barely passed his biophysical ultrasound. They needed him to kick or punch a certain number of times within a 30 minute timeframe, and he really didn't wanna. I had to move around and poke my belly a ton to get him to do the bare minimum (he was either sleeping or is just an extremely lazy boy). However, morning is not usually when he's bumping around in there -- he tends to be a "night mover" so my guess is we were disrupting his morning womb nap. But, this just confirmed that he's too dang comfy in there!
But, his HR is great and he doesn't seem to be under any stress, so that's good for a post-date baby. And, the u/s estimated him to be 8 lbs 5 oz (again, could be off one way or another, but the dr. said she'd estimate him right around the 8 lbs mark -- we'll see come Thursday, I guess). As for me, my BP, pulse, weight, etc all remain steady too, so despite my mental frustration, my body is totally chill with having him go post-term.
So, that's about all I can report: Most likely headed to the hospital tomorrow night, and we're expecting a Thursday baby!
