I’ve now been at my sister’s house over 2 weeks. Our Obgyn was worried that our little man would come early because of how big he has been measuring(already 8+ lbs by now!). Plus, my sister’s last baby came early at 36 weeks, so like I wrote in my last post, I left my husband at home and drove over 13 hrs….and…still nothing. We just had an appt though last Monday and we had a scare. 2 weeks ago he had dropped and she was measuring 1cm dialated….but this last appt…he went back up 🙁 and she’s still measuring 1cm….and she has borderline high blood pressure. At the rate at which he is growing…our Ob is worried that if he doesn’t drop soon, we will need to schedule a c-section…..
And tears……
First from me…then my sister…and then my Mom…

This is the LAST thing I wanted to do to my sister. I know the real reason why she didn’t even want to transfer 2 embryos was the fact that possibly carrying twins most likely meant a c-section and she did not want to do that…at all. And I don’t blame her. Both of her other pregnancies were easy…I mean…that’s one of the reasons why she offered to carry for us…because she enjoys pregnancy(well, to a degree 😉 and her deliveries were easy….but now?

So, we got monitored…and all is good so far…but if he doesn’t come soon…or if either of them is distressed…then a c-section might be a very real possibility….and I am terrified. If it was me…I’ve had about 20 surgeries…. I know I could handle it…but my sister? Her very first surgery was last year…remember when I wrote this post? And now, if she has to have her 2nd surgery because of me…and then the healing process after a c-section? I just don’t even want to think about it….

But now I have to….

So please have good thoughts that baby boy comes on his own…and there are no complications during delivery….

We’ve gotten so far…just a little more…..

  1. Oh Friend, I am sorry Baby Boy is cooperating right now! I will pray that he comes soon, on his own, without complications and for peace and strength for you and your Sister! Take care and Big hugs!!!!

  2. So sorry for the stress. But– I had a c-section for my miracle boy and the recovery is so much easier than I thought. I was walking around the same evening and moving normally within a week. Just want to give you that perspective. Xoxox

    • I’ve unfortunately had a c-section before too(long of my many surgeries) No fun…at all(breathing hurts!) so I know I can handle it but to have your family member volunteer to do this for you and go through pregnancy(which is enough) and then for them not to have a baby after and be in pain and healing…..ugh…just makes me sick. I just want them both to be ok and in the least amount of pain possible 🙁 xoxo

  3. Sending positive thoughts in your direction. I’ve had a c section and recovery wasnt too bad, but I can understand your, and your sisters, worries about it x

    • Thank you RC! Just tough when my sister volunteered to do this…just not the same when you go through it and you have a baby..just don’t want her in any more pain then she needs to be for doing this selfless thing for me 🙁 xo
