And we have an induction date!
I am officially scheduled to be induced on November 22nd. Guys, that’s less than two weeks away!
So here’s the long explanation. I went in today to get checked for my 37 week appointment. I was about 2cm dilated, but my cervix has done little to no softening. My doctor is concerned because as a FTM, I should have already dropped at least a little bit by now. Lily is still sitting very high.
After my examination, he sat down with me and asked if I would be open to an induction. He said that because she hasn’t dropped, he’s worried I’ll have issues with my pelvis or that there may be a bit too much amniotic fluid. He didn’t seem overly concerned and told me that there’s nothing to worry about, but he would like to discuss an induction at 39 weeks.
He told me that there is always a chance that I could go into labor spontaneously, but I probably won’t. So, I’m now making my plans for the day before Thanksgiving. My last day at work will be next Friday (a freaking week, ya’ll!) Then it’s nothing but relaxation (I lied I’ll be cleaning the house) until baby comes.
Today is a good day.
