Baby Stuff- I had a doctor's appointment this week where they measured Baby T in another growth ultrasound. He is measuring in the 97% and already is estimated to weigh over 7 pounds! Whoa. My doctor definitely wants me to try and have a normal delivery, so we are going to do another ultrasound at 38 weeks to see how big he is. If he is continuing to grow very large, I might be induced early to try and deliver him myself. If not, I may end up with a C-section.
A lot of people have had very interesting comments about getting induced or having a C-section. Personally, I trust my doctor. She knows what is going to be best for me and this baby. If she thinks he will be too big and needs to come out via C-section, that is fine with me. My birth plan has always been to do whatever the doctor thinks will be best for me and the baby. I don't have a laundry list of things I feel "need" to happen. My husband and I have even joked that our birth plan is "get the baby out." As for being induced, I am definitely okay with getting this fella out before he becomes the size of a T-Rex.
We also crossed nearly everything off of our list this week! The car seat is installed, the pack and play is ready, the dog went to the beauty parlor...everything is coming together! It is kind of frightening that we have reached the stage of the pregnancy where he could actually show up anytime now. I keep finding things to do to keep myself busy to occupy my thoughts and time! My husband and I also found time this week to go out on a date! We went to one of our favorite restaurants Maggianos and went to see Jurassic World. It's so strange to think that we are only weeks away from meeting our son...our nights out are numbered!
The Best Moment This Week- Finding out that baby's head is still in the 97% and didn't jump over 100%...ouch. :)
