Well, I went to the doctor yesterday and there is no change:( Dr. Roberts said that Braden was breech for so long that it will probably take awhile for things to change and progress! She mentioned inducing me on August 18th, but I told her that I wasn't sure. She told me it was totally up to us, but decided to do an ultrasound to see how big he was. His head (our biggest obstacle) was already measuring over 40 weeks... just like his bubba, and she said that he looked like he might be a pretty big baby... already estimated weighing about 8 lbs. She again assured me that the decision to induce was entirely up to me, but she said that she is afraid that if I go until me due date or longer I might be looking at a 9.5 pound baby and a watermelon head (she didn't say watermelon head, I did!) So my dilemma continues!!! I told her that I would think about the induction and tell her on Thursday when I go back to the doctor. Please pray that we will make the right decision. Brooks' was induced for the same "problem" (large head size) and I think that this added to my LONG labor and delivery. However, if I wait and he gets to big then I would hate to labor and THEN have to have a C-Section..... Ahhhhh, what to do, what to do???!!!!
