I had my regular doctors appointment. She checked me and i was at 2 cm. That was HIGHLY disappointing because with Brennan i was at 3, and Knox i was at 6. BUT she wanted to check my fluid level because i had not increased in measurement since 35 weeks. I had not gained weight since 35 weeks and i had felt a decrease in movement. So she ordered an ultrasound. The ultrasound showed that my fluid levels were very low. Normal is 15..i was at 7. At 6 they order immediate induction and/or c-section. So she said why dont we strip your membranes, see if you go into labor on your own tonight and if not we will schedule an induction for in the morning. So she stretched me to a three, stripped my membranes (not quite as painful as i remembered) and home we went.
My mom will travel up withe boys in the morning, we can have one more night to rest (possibly) and i can have our bags completely packed instead of waiting to add toiletries. I have no idea what its like to do this and i am admittedly a little nervous, but I know that this is the best thing for Molly. Dr. Wyndham said if her fluid level gets too low she could accidentally lay on the cord and then there would be trouble..So i am to hydrate a lot tonight, walk and rest.
And here we go!! I go to the hospital at 7:30 am..
