So now what?! We are scrambling to get things done! We will be finishing the nursery, installing the car seat, packing the hospital bag, and getting the house 100% ready for his arrival. We had to go out and buy a new coming home outfit since the one we have will be too big. His growth checks at this appointment came in at 4.0 lbs, 4.8 lbs, and 4.14 lbs so he’s pretty little! We got him a little premie outfit and had to buy some more little clothes but I’m hoping to get one more pound on him before he comes out, my fingers are crossed.
I’m pretty apprehensive about the idea of induction because it boosts your chances of ending up with a c-section. And induction in general just isn’t a “natural” experience, you’re forcing your body into something which I’d rather not do. But there are positives too, I know when we’re going, I can make sure to shower and get ready before heading to the hospital, and I can mentally prepare myself. And so the countdown truly is on…. Our Turkey baby has turned into a Pumpkin baby!!
