My last 3 pregnancies I have been considered high risk due to a genetic condition I have called Factor V, Leyden MTHFR. It causes excessive clotting in the blood, and was one of the main contributing factors to the Pulmonary Embolism that I had after Ian's birth.
It also means that I am at risk for a small baby (we know that hasn't proven true), and placenta issues.
It really goes against all my beliefs of just letting pregnancy progress, and letting the baby be. In addition they are highly recommending that I stop my medication and then get an induction. Last time they would not take no for an answer, so I scheduled the induction then just didn't show up.
Unless there is a medical reason, I plan to let him come when he is supposed to come.
I am officially 37 weeks. The countdown begins.
