I had my 36 week appointment today with Dr. Brown and even got to see little Miss Nellie prior to talking with him. She’s growing like a weed and weighing in at approximately 5 lb and 13 oz.
Everything looks good.
She’s healthy, thriving and beautiful. She looks so much like Ada! She’s got the same little button nose, chin and kissable little mouth. I am so excited to meet her!
Which brings me to my next statement, Nellie So will be born on November 30, 2010, if she doesn’t decide to appear earlier. After much discussion and thought, I scheduled a repeat c-section for that day–and I have decided that if she were to come any earlier, to go through a trial of labor. This has been a very hard decision for me to make, but ultimately, I feel that I am making the safest and best choice for Nellie and myself.
But, like I said, if she comes early, we’ll go through a trial of labor…which…Dr. Brown says that as of today, Nov. 9th, I am already 75% effaced, about 1 cm dilated and sitting at a -2 station. So…it’s anyone’s guess as to when she’ll really debut! 🙂
