I am shocked that I went from someone who was crying scary tears after my 26w appointment due to a shortening cervix, to someone who just got off the phone with her doctor to schedule her induction. How in the heck did I make it this far? I kept my feet up half of the day from week 27 through week 34 and since then I’ve been home full time, but not on any restrictions. And I’m still baking babies. I am shocked. And extremely grateful.
So the induction has been scheduled for 38w4d on July 26th. They induce at night so the babies likely wouldn’t come until the 27th. (Sienna – and I got in with Dr. B!)
I am of two frames of mind at the moment:
1. The possibility of going past 38w is so awesome! The babies will be over 7 lbs each by then for sure. The longer they bake, the better.
2. Omg, can I do this for another two weeks?!
They seem pretty comfy in there at the moment. I’m eager to see what the docs say after my check up on Friday. I still want to avoid an induction if I can so if all looks good on Friday, maybe I’ll start up acupuncture and other things (sex, enema) to see if we can get some movement on our own. If you have any tips, please share!
