My dr. appointment went well today. Everett is still measuring on the big side but ultrasounds this late in the game are usually pretty subject to a large margin of error. I'm not stressing about it. I pushed Emersyn out just fine, I'm sure Everett will be the same even if he's bigger. I feel like people tend to over react about big babies so I'm not advertising this freely on FB or anything. :)
I am dilated to a three and about 50% effaced. My dr. said that everything seems ready to go and she agreed to induce me Monday evening. She was not pro-induction by any means and I know that everything had to line up for her to induce me so this makes me happy.
Sometimes I get so weary of women and their opinions. Why is it when it comes to having babies that we get so judgmental? Inductions or not, breastfeeding or not, etc. I definitely have some opinions about what I feel is best but I really feel to each their own. I know not everyone in my life *approves* of inductions and I don't think that is very fair. I have out of state family to consider and a daughter with a REALLY close birthdate that I am hoping to avoid. Besides, I have one of the best birth stories that I have ever heard before with Emersyn and I was induced with her. This is just a side rant but I needed to get it off my chest. I would never do ANYTHING to endanger my baby or myself (and neither would my dr. obviously). I am already in an early stage of labor technically being dilated to a three. I plan on being very active again this weekend and getting Everett good and ready to head out. :)
Today I got a mani/pedi and a hair cut. I feel like a new woman. I'm hoping for a burst of energy tonight as we get the house picked up for the cleaners in the morning. I'm thankful to have the time to get in these last minute pampering services. :)
Happy Thursday everyone!!!
