Update from Dr. visit…

Okay, after a loooonnngg wait at the office his morning I am finally back. Everything with the baby looks fine…I am dilated 1cm. Her heart rate is good, my blood pressure and weight are good (only gained 1 lb), but I am going to be having a c-section. After seeing the perinatologist last week and then talking with my OB this morning, we decided it is best. The baby is measuring at 7 lbs, but more than that her abdominal measurements are about two weeks ahead of where I actually am, so that is an indicator that shoulder dystocia could again be a problem. Not only would that be a nightmare for Karl and I (no desire to experience that again) it is a physician’s nightmare as well. We want a nice, peaceful delivery….Obviously, there are risks with any type of delivery, but I am trusting in my God to see us through. I admit I am a bit fearful, just because it is unknown territory for me. But, I do also trust my doctors and I know things will be fine. Now, if we can just make sure Karl is here (and not in Miami!) when I need to go to the hospital, my worries will be minimal. ;}
