Welp, Mom is officially on bedrest. The doctor said the only thing that will help her is delivering me and right now time is her enemy. He offered amnio in 2.5 weeks to see if my lungs are mature enough to induce and deliver right then (at 37 weeks). Mom and Dad said absolutely not and he said he hopes Mom goes into labor a little early on her own then. :/
He also recommended a cesarean or at least an epidural to handle what’s sure to be immense pain but Mom told him she’s not delivering in the hospital unless he says it’s medically necessary. So for now he’s prescribing a home healthcare aid to help while she’s on bedrest. Let the insurance telephone game begin!
