Its already 36+weeks, unbelievable. This pregnancy has been a long ride between the fertility treatments, high blood pressure and subsequent bed rest, oh and chasing a toddler around. I am not necessarily ready for a newborn but ready to finish being pregnant. Today, I was at my weekly OB appointment. I was monitored with the non-stress test, no contractions, I am not dilated.
My OB, Dr. Medchill and I scheduled my C-section. I had a choice between August 2 and July 23. My feet are swollen so I am waddling and my BP was a bit high. I don't think I will make it until August. I chose July 23rd which is technically 38 weeks. Dr. Medchill advised that I will have to have amnio at same time as C-section to ensure the baby's lungs are developed. There is minimal risk with the amnio if anything it would trigger labor.
That is all I have to report at this time. I hope to be writing more in the next few days before Baby Boy Piccione is here.
