Re: September mommies.....It's almost time!

I will be getting induced because of my gd at 39 weeks. I am currently 37 and will be 38 on Friday. My next prenatal appt. is tomorrow and i was told i would be given an appointment for when they were going to induce me. So hopefully next weekend or into the second week of September my little guy will be here.

Re: September 2008 Part 2 mommies.....It's almost time!

I am 36 weeks tomorrow. I might be induced early as well due to the GD. They don't know yet, but I do know that they will not let me go past my due date. I still need a couple of more weeks to get ready, so I will be happy if the baby is content in there and doesn't make any early appearances, although I am anxious to not be pregnant anymore. It has been a long 10 months for me and all the medical issues that came with the pregnancy. I could really go for a good stiff drink!

Re: September 2008 Part 2 mommies.....It's almost time!

Wow, I feel like I am the only one definitely NOT being induced. Guess I will just have to wait until my little girl decides to come. But I am with you Suewaz, I am fine with her staying as long as she needs to, but am ready for the pregnancy to be over too. I have had a lot of medical issues with this pregnancy as well, plus our daughter has a single umbilicial artery. But it doesn't seem to be of a concern or at least not enough to induce me early. I am fine with that. My first daughter came three days early, so I am hoping this one sticks to that time frame. I don't want to go over for sure!!!

Is everyone still around and doing ok? I had my 36 week appointment today and my first internal exam. I am 2 cm dilated, I couldn't believe it! I actually feel like there is an end in sight now!

Wow Delia, congrats on making early progress. )

I have my 37 week check up on Thursday. Even though I know I am being induced in 2 weeks, it would be nice to be dilated too. I've heard it makes induction a little easier if the "process" is somewhat started . . . . we'll see! I'm anxious for everyone to start posting their birthing stories! Good luck to all!

Re: September 2008 Part 2 mommies.....It's almost time!

Thanks Goingtothebeach! I couldn't believe it, I was actually pretty surprised!
Now I guess I don't feel so behind, not being due until Sept. 30th and all.

Sweet,
Have you found out your induction date yet? I know that I may stay at 2 for a while, but finding that out yesterday gave me that extra push to start getting things done now. If nothing else, I need to at least have a bag packed and ready to go, just in case!!!

They also are going to start doing weekly u/s now. He called it a biophysical profile? I guess just to monitor the baby's growth since she has an SUA. I wish they'd do a 3D like they did when I was pregnant with my first daughter. I'd love to get a glimpse at what she might look like!!!

Re: September 2008 Part 2 mommies.....It's almost time!

Yes delia i just got the call this morning. im scheduled to come in Saturday Morning at 6am. I thought i would get some strick instruction other then to just be there. The only thing they said was to show up and eat very light only if i really had to.


As far as the baby bag do u think that you could over pack for the hospital i mean i think i have everything i need but im scared i might forget something. Should i have a separate bag for me and the baby because right now the baby's clothes etc. are in my hospital bag.

**Delia - get that bag ready!

i plan to take pillows with me. The hospital give you some but mine are confortable for me. (I sleep with them everynight)

Re: September 2008 Part 2 mommies.....It's almost time!

Sweet,
With my first daughter I packed her stuff and mine in the same bag. I don't think you have to have seperate bags. I am sure you won't forget anything and if you do your BF will be there to run and get it. I can't believe it's Saturday. Only three days left for you!!! I can't wait to hear all about it!

Re: September 2008 Part 2 mommies.....It's almost time!

thanks alot to both of you i hope i dont have a long labor nothing more then 9 or ten hours i've read and heard of 24 and 36 hour labors i dont think i can do it.

The only thing im scared of now is tearing i know that because of my gd the baby is a little bigger and an episiotmoy may haveto be done. If i dont feel it because of the numbing i will be happy. I know the healing process is uncomfortable but only last maybe two and a half weeks.

Has any one ever had a tear or episiotomy?

I cant wait i know that i hope i dont have to have a c section--but if so i just hope everything go good.

Re: September 2008 Part 2 mommies.....It's almost time!

Sweet,
Yes, I had an episiotomy with my first daughter and she wasn't even that big...only 6 pounds 11 ounces. It was a 2nd degree and while not fun I would much rather have had that instead of tearing. When you tear it can go any way, it's not controlled. So I was ok with having to have it. The actual incision itself wasn't bad considering everything else that was going on. The recovery was a little annoying but certainly nothing you coulnd't deal with. Plus they give you medication if you want for the pain. Of course, if you have an epidural and it works for you then you won't feel the incision at all. My doctor gave me a quick shot in that area before performing the episiotomy but with my epidural worn off already it really didn't help. But again, nothing compared to the rest of it.
