I have had another non stress test since my last post and it went well too. The doctor assures me that he is probably being overly cautious by having them done. I am feeling so much more relieved. At my visit on Monday he really made it sound like he sees no reason why I would be induced before the 23rd. So that is the plan for now. I have one more non stress test and two more doctor's visits before I will be induced.
Thank you so much for all of the nice comments and offers to help. I am so lucky to have such good family and friends to help me out! I am feeling really good and have even deep cleaned 2 of the rooms in my house. Hooray!
During the year that McKenna was about 12 to 24 months, she was in the 4th percentile for height and weight that whole year- but her head was in the 85th. (Like an orange on a toothpick!) So I am reminding myself that even babies who don't measure up the way they are 'supposed' to can still be perfectly healthy, and adorable to boot! So that is what I'm hoping for here.
Anyway, things are looking up!
