So, my dr says I'm 37 weeks and 3 days today but I had an ultrasound and the ultra sound says the baby is 39 weeks and one day today....I'm not dialated but my cervix is soft. I am in so much pain, hip, pelvis, sacrum, back and now knee too (even though I'm going to PT!!) that it's getting harder and harder to take care of my very active almost 11 month old! And forget about the house, my husband has been cooking and cleaning after working all day.
I was told today that they wont change my due date and that they can't induce me til I'm 41 weeks prego (that would make baby about 43 weeks) I have no medical reason for them to induce me...no high blood pressure, excessive water ect. The ultrasound tech believes the baby is 8.5lbs to 9lbs right now. I know I'm not a dr but the bigger the baby gets the more likely I'll have to have a c section, so is that not a medical reason??? Besides me becoming less mobile everyday.
Is it stupid of me to change drs so late in my pregnancy? I don't think I can wait four more weeks, we can't afford a nanny and family tries to help when they can, my husband can't stop working for a month to help. And since the baby is 39+ weeks I know he'll be healthy and everything. I'm stressing out and I can't do anything about it! Any advice or thoughts would be nice!
