Signs of growth
Sighs of relief
Tingle of anticipation
We found out at today's ultrasound appointment that BGV did make a marginal gain in her abdominal circumference. I was not impressed by the very small number (she falls in the second percentile), but my specialist was ... to the point that she is now recommending an induction later this week, Monday at the latest ... rather than tomorrow. Which means BGV gets a few extra days to grow and allow her lungs to mature a bit more! Of course, that also means continued monitoring and more doctor's appointments, but ... whatever ;) I should know the official "plan" tomorrow after seeing my OB for another non-stress test and cervix check ... woo hoo!
At this point, I have completely embraced the idea of an induction. So many of you shared stories and insights to help me to get to this better place! I know that drugs will initiate what my body already knows how to do I will trust my body as well as very close monitoring of the baby to see us both through to the very best possible outcome.
Ah, the anticipation of meeting her ... and sharing her with all of you ... is really starting to make me crazy ... in the best way!
