Miakoda - my hat is off to you. I know if I have to drive that far even with a c-sextion incision I will. Nico's need to see the specialists is way more important. But I would soooo prefer to not have to. You are defaintely a very strong and determined person.

Sarah - Thank you so much

You'll do great.

Nico has been in my thoughts and prayers, and I'm sure he'll do just fine with the surgery. I know the first few months will be nerve-wracking, but just love on him all you can!

Thanks. His surgery will be scheduled for when he is about 3-6 months old. And I know that day I will be a nervous wreck. The idea of my new born son going under scares me to no end but I also know that the younger they do it the faster they heal and also the better they heal with less likely hood of a scar.

The evaluation when he is 2 weeks old is to see the extent of the cleft. Right now it is on his left side and goes up into the left nostril. It was only 4mm on the screen that they could see. They will need to check his gums to make sure he won't need surgery on those later to make sure his teeth come in properly. And the will look to see if there is a cleft palette though at this moment it does not seem so from what they could see. That will be a long day for sure because they say it is usually about a 4 hour evaluation with all the specialists. Luckily, if he is not able to latch, I have a pump that is portable so will be able to pump there during the evaluation so Nico can have his meal.

I know it is all worth it. I just worry about him and he is not even born yet.

I know his has nothing to do with the subject.... But for those who have kids: does pregnancy change your body? (Not meant in an offensive way) I have seen women who seem to horribly lose their "shape" after a baby & there others like a friend of mine whom I hadn't seen in forever that I couldn't even tell she'd been pregnant.

Today we are officially 40 weeks. Yup frustrated. Looks like Nico is taking the same path as his sister and 2 brothers. They all went 42 weeks before coming into the world after membranes being stripped. My third had to have a cream applied to induce him to come. We plan to try the cream in a week and a half. That is the earliest they will try that. On Wednesday they will be stripping my membranes agian. So we will see.

No offence taken. It really depends on the woman. My half sister can have a baby and fit back into her normal sized jeans(she is much smaller then me) in a day or so. I on the other hand take much longer to lose the baby weight. And in some areas I don't. I will always have a slight belly bulge no matter how much exercise and so on. So it really depends on the person.

Why are you inducing????

Especially if you naturally go longer? (as experienced in your previous pregnancies) Inducing when the baby is not ready, if there is no medical emergency is really not a good idea and can lead to problems...ESPECIALLY if you are trying to avoid a c-section, induction greatly increases those.

Actually they consider a pregnancy full term at 38 weeks. Which is how far along I was when they did the first membrane stripping. The reason we wanted him to hopefully come at 38 weeks is because he had measured large at certian times and they were concerned their could be a chance of c-section if he was too large. I have never had one and would prefer to not have one. My other 3 all were born at 42 weeks and that is 2 weeks over the normal 40 week due date. The 40 week due date is different then the 38 to term date. So yes today as I said I am officially 40 weeks. But no one was trying to induce unsafely or asking for trouble. Babies are consider term at 38 weeks.

"At 38 weeks pregnant, you are now considered full term."
