We had our Dr. appointment yesterday, and it went very well!
We had an ultrasound, and look at the precious picture we got!
I think he looks like Hubby
Our biophysical profile looked perfect! He has plenty of fluid, is measuring in the 65%, has plenty of blood flow, and looks happy as can be! They are estimating that he is 7lbs 15oz. A big boy!
My blood pressure was high, so they had me lie down for awhile on my left side before they took it again. It was much better after that. So, we didn't get to do the non stress test. That is rescheduled for Friday morning.
We did an internal exam, and Dr. thinks Jaxson is lower, but I have not dilated at all. He tried to get it started, but it didn't work out. Jaxson just isn't ready yet!
We scheduled our induction for May 14th!!
Originally it was scheduled for the 13th, but Hubby freaked out that he didn't want his son born on Friday the 13th. I mean, FREAKED out. We had a great debate in our house yesterday afternoon. Sigh. Who would have thought that would be such a big deal? I learned a couple of things about my Husband during our "debate" about changing the induction date last night. He is BEYOND superstitious. You see, he will only use ONE towel when he showers. We wash it and hang it right back up. It's not one of our good soft wedding towels, or even a remotely new towel. It's ratty and totally almost thread bare. Apparently, it's lucky - and 9 years old. We also have lucky slacks that we wear on days when we think we need "extra luck". And lucky boxers. Is it crazy that I don't believe in this? And the most ironic part, Hubby is convinced that he has the worst luck of anyone in the world. I don't get it. He doesn't either. I told him that if he could explain the significance of the date to me, then I would completely honor his wishes. Of course he couldn't. So, I looked up the significance of Friday the 13th. Did you know that its history is from October 13, 1307? King Philip of France charged the Knights Templar with horrible crimes that were not true. They captured and tortured them. Seriously - that's what we are afraid of? That and some movies that I've never watched because I have horrible nightmares. I called the Dr. today, feeling like an idiot, and asked to change our induction date. So, in the end, I did the right thing and respected my Husband's wishes :)
Are you superstitious? Would it bother you if your child was born on Friday the 13th?
