I mean Baby!
It seems my little one isn’t so little and is causing Jon and me to have to makes some tough decisions - so any insight you can give would be much appreciated.
Here’s the scoop. I had my normal Dr’s appointment on Monday and the baby is still measuring large – two weeks to be exact. The doctor has suggested that I get scheduled to be induced on November 15th instead of waiting until my due date which is the following week. He had three reasons for this suggestion
1. The baby is big and if I haven’t had the baby by then he/she will be a little smaller, hopefully giving me a little easier delivery
2. If the baby hasn’t already come we can arrange Jon’s flights so he will be able to be here for the delivery – which would be awesome!!
3. If I’m induced then my doctor will be able to deliver the baby – which I thought was really sweet that he included it in his list.
As you may have noticed I mentioned a few times "if I haven't had the baby yet" and that's because I really feel like this baby is going to come on its own and before the due date or the 15th which makes this conversation kind of pointless. Jon and I would both rather nature take its course and the baby to come when the baby is ready (unless there is a medical reason otherwise, which I guess #1 could be a medical reason – uugghh see this is why I’m asking you for your opinion).
Okay enough talking in circles, please let me know what you think. I would appreciate all of your insights and suggestions.
