We had another Dr. appointment today, and it went well.
We did another Biophysical Profile, and Jaxson looks great! He has plenty of fluid, blood flow, and a strong heartbeat.
We have not made any progress. Not even a little. My Dr. manually opened my cervix and it was the most painful thing that I have ever felt to date (I know that will change in a few days!) He offered me his other hand to hold while he did it, which I thought was very kind of him. He is hoping that will release hormones that will ripen my cervix for labor.
I am scheduled to go back for another Non Stress Test on Friday morning. He wants to check me for progress. If we haven't made any progress, then he will admit us on Friday night and start medicine to ripen my cervix to get ready for induction Saturday morning. If we have made progress, then we can stay home Friday night and go in Saturday morning. I hope we can stay home and sleep in our own bed on Friday night to be totally honest. And, even if we have to go in Friday night, part of me wants Hubby to stay home after I get settled and get a good night's sleep so he will be well rested and totally there for me when I need him on Saturday. What do you ladies think? Have any of you been in that situation? Do you really need someone with you overnight that night?
Thank you all for your kind words and prayer this week, they are much appreciated!
