On A Saturday

My OBGYN just called me to follow up. I was a little nervous to answer this call because usually they wouldn't call on a Saturday unless it is important. I am glad she called because I like follow ups an it puts my mind at ease when she has good news or NOT BAD news.

She had talked with the specialist that I met with on Wed. and she said that my Ultrasound looked great. The specialist was happy with everything he saw and he thinks that I will be ok if I just go into my actual OB Office 2 times a week and not into the Perinatal Center unless things change for the worse. I am happy about this because that clinic isn't close but then I am also a little worried because I like being in the hands of specialist and people that are trained in dealing with this. I have faith in my OB and she has been great through this all.

So starting now I will be going to my clinic 2 times a week with ultra sounds and 1 time a week with blood work and meeting with my doctor. The same thing I was doing but they will not be doing a doppler. I guess my little girl did so well on her test that they are not thinking they need the doppler. Still a lot to do but I am glad it is all being done a lot closer to home.

The plan is still to induce between 36 and 37 weeks. We can not schedule to be induced until a week before hand so we have to wait until the week of the 15th . We are hoping to be induced on the 22nd ( both Chad and my mom want that date for some reason ). I am not big on the date I just want her here.

This week they will start checking me to see if I am dilated at all. So Tuesday we have a very big day and will be at the doctor for about 2 + hours.

Little girl has been very active and my sleep is only getting worse. I am ready for her to be here now. Grandma and Grandpa Schuler are here this weekend and the girls are taking off to do some shopping ( joann fabrics, once upon a child, sams club, target and maybe wal mart )

Hope everyone has a good weekend.

GREAT NEWS! I'm so glad that the tests ended good and the baby did so well. I'll keep praying for her though. I can't wait to see pics of her little face.
I feel like I know know you guys. Like we've known each other for years. Is that weird?
I guess its because we always talk and We've followed each other for over a year now.

I love Eliza and Ava. Ava was one of my girl names on my list. But then we had a boy. I think Ava and Alex is so cute. Eli and Alex is adorable too. I like Avin too, I've just never heard of it. I think Avi is precious. Good choices. Which are you guys leaning towards.

I like Ava and Eliza best. :)

I like Avin because it is different. I have never heard it before. It would be so cute to call her Avi, and different than Ava (very popular right now). Good luck with the decision, and I am glad to hear that everything is going well with the little one.

I'm so happy to hear the good news tonight. I know inside part of you feels comfortable seeing the specialist but I have faith that your doctor is doing good and if need be you'll be right back at that specialist's office :)

Can't wait to hear the birthday date!!!! I can't believe this little princess is almost here! So excited to see her-I know you are!!!!

I love Eliza!! I think it is absolutely beautiful!
