We just got back from our baby check-up. My blood pressure was 140/90. That’s the number that starts concerning doctors. It could be that it jumped up that high because I had a surprise blood test done. For everyone that knows me, I’m terrified of needles.
I had an ultrasound done. Everything is still perfect. A normal amount of amniotic fluid, the placenta is good, baby’s heartbeat is good, and the new estimate on her weight is 8 pounds 12 ounces.
We talked with the doctor. He asked, “What are your plans for delivery?” It felt comforting to know that he was asking me what I’d like to do. I told him that I was hoping to avoid induction, but I know my blood pressure is a concern. He said, “Well, everything looks fine right now.” However, he did suggest I go to the hospital on Monday for an induction. I haven’t dilated more, or effaced more. He did do another membrane sweep, which was painful this time. As of now… I feel nothing. No contractions.
We are going to the hospital Sunday night to start Cervidil. Then on Monday morning Pitocin will be started. I give up.
I’m going to bed now. I just want to sleep.
