Thank you for all the congrats and delurkers. It was so great to read all of these sweet, encouraging, beautiful comments and well wishes for our family. It gave me something to do in the weee hours of the mornings when Baby just wanted to be held.
I want to start at the beginning to record this for all it's worth:
We worked really hard this past weekend to get the nursery up and functioning. Monday morning, brite and early (645am) we headed off to my mf.m appointment. I got there and was called back. They did another growth scan and b.pp. The scan measured Mini to be 8lb 4oz. I PANICKED. I was just imagining how big he was going to be by the induction date. Dr Wonderful asked if i had a cervical check at my n.st on Friday. I told him no. So he wanted to check. I agreed. He was VERY shocked to find that I was in between 3-4cm dilated and he quickly went and got my OB's office on the phone. They decided that an animo was the next safest decision, so I obliged. The amnio really was no big deal, I was going to go home for the day. Rest up and wait for the results Tuesday. Dr Wonderful and the OB's office were tossing around induction on Wednesday as long as the amnio looked well. I was told to get dressed so we could move me to the ns.t room. I stood up to get dressed and water just gushed out of me all over the floor. (like 2 glasses full) I called the u/s tech back and told her, they rechecked my fluid level via u/s and noticed a significant difference. Plans started to change. Dr Wonderful got on the phone with OB's Office to let them know of the new situation. I was did an ns.t and was showing baby was fine and my contractions were there but not in any rhythmic pattern.
While i was hooked up for the nst, Dr Wonderful came in and told me that after leaving his office i was to go home get my bags and get to the hospital. So we left his office 1 hour away from our house - got our bags and headed to the hospital. I arrived at the hospital around 1-130 pm.
(more to come - all i can get typed out right now)
