Over due for an update here, on 14 March 2017 9:14 am little Jack came into the world. =)
It was a planned cesarean because hevhad been measuring as large on the ultrasound scans, and yes he was big, his birth weight was 10 pound 11 or 4.85kg. I stayed in hospital 5 days, ended uo getting a migraine on night and was totally unablevto communicate with the midwife who was on, don’t know what she thought was going on. Jack is 10 days old now, finally putting on weight, such a cute little boy I have.
I have been off work now for almost a week which has been ok, a little boring, have made lots of meals to stash in the freezer.
Early last week we saw an obstetrician, and he went over some stuff gave us some options, one of which was to wait another week and a bit and have another scan at about 39 weeks, and then make a definite plan, we went with this. The other options at the time were induction at 39 weeks or cesarean section.
Had the scan today, 39 weeks tomorrow, he was practicing breathing, tummy going in and out (cute!), his head is measuring over 10cm at its widest point… and the estimated weight was 5025g or slightly over 11 pound… so yes, he has been continuing to go at a consistent rate.
So I get a call from my midwife not long ago, and a cesarean is booked for Monday morning. This is actually a relief for me as I have been considering both options and was having real difficulty deciding on which I would pick if given the choice, as both have pros and cons, and I would have been ok with either.
So I’m feeling pretty good, quite calm, but also excited.
Our babys birthday will be one day before his Grandfathers on his Dads side but 60 years apart.
