40 Weeks

Based on my retrieval date, I am 40 weeks pregnant today. The baby has always measured ahead on ultrasounds, but the tape measure puts her right on track every time. Now I'm freaking out bc I'm afraid her placenta will stop working. My 40 week appt ia this afternoon so we will discuss our options. She hasn't dropped, my cervix is hard, closed and posterior. I guess this means c-section? I'm waffling as to whether I want to go into labor naturally I'd get her out here while I know she's okay. I can't control everything, but I sure can try! Question: when should I get a non-stress test? HMOs suck.

NSTs should start now, if you are going to wait on labor. The doctor can also do an ultrasound to grade your placenta (how well it is functioning). Good luck and Congrats!

I hope she drops and soon! I know it's stressful making it to your due date (stressful but amazing!!) but hopefully she will come soon!
