I’m 39 weeks today. It feels like I’ve been pregnant for 17 years. It’s hard to wrap my mind around the idea that at any moment, she could decide she’s ready to make her appearance. I hope it’s sooner rather than later. Her room is ready. Everything is in place. We just need her to arrive. We’ve been having to do weekly ultrasounds and non-stress tests on her to monitor her activity¬† because my blood pressure has been so high. So far, she has passed all her tests and she looks great. I love watching her tiny lungs take practice breaths and seeing her little fingers and toes wiggle. I can’t wait to kiss her tiny toes!! My fluid had dropped quite a bit at my last appointment so we are monitoring that. It’s a 6.7 and if it gets to a 5, they have to induce. We had planned to set an induction date for 39 weeks (today) but she hasn’t dropped low enough into the birthing canal. She’s head down and facing my left hip. She just needs to turn and drop!! If we induced now, there would be a very high chance of having a c-section and I’d like to try and avoid that. So, fingers crossed, she will decide to change positions and drop before my next appointment on Thursday!! I can’t wait to hold her in my arms. I love her more than I’ve ever loved another person. Soon!
