We have a plan...now place your bets!

Well, after an eventful day at the doctor...
Rajko Rasheta will be born via a c-section on Friday, March 13th at 12:30 pm!
I went to the doctor today and still nothing...in fact, he showed me that I can feel the baby's entire head still floating around high in my abdomen. He's been head down for over a month, but just won't drop into the pelvis or go anywhere near it. No dilation. No effacement. No progress.
Since we were very nervously awaiting this appointment, it was no surprise to me that my blood pressure was sky high!!! But, wanting to make sure it wasn't a bigger issue such as preeclampsia, the doctor sent us over to triage to be evaluated and have some blood work done for a platelet count and something that has to do with the liver. By the time I got there, I was plugging away at a perfect 120/80 and the baby was fine. It was a quick hour or so until they had the blood work back, and they let us go...scheduling us for the c-section before we left.
So...your guesses on time will be pretty easy, since you know I'm having surgery at 12:30 and it only takes a few minutes, but place your bet on time and weight, if you please!!!
Love you all, Noah and Giselle

Yeah, I can't wait to see pictures of this cute little baby boy... I never know on guessing times, doctors can be late ya know... But he looks pretty tiny!

Hmmm, I will go for 2:45 because although you're schedule, something always changes! I'll bet he weighs 6 lbs 12 oz. I don't know why I think he's so litlte, but I just do. Maybe if he were a chub a lub, his weight would push him down into your pelvis??? Either way, I can't wait to be there in person to see this little guy!!!!

Yay Noah! You're gonna be a daddy! Congrats ya'll! I can't wait to see pictures :) Oh...if I had to guess, 7lbs. 8 oz. @ 1:15.

I am saying 2:10 and 8 lbs. 8 oz. I had the same thing with Treygen. He wouldn't drop down and I had to hang over one of those huge exercise balls for an hour and a half thinking happy thoughts and breathing deep trying to get him to drop far enough. haha. It didn't work. At least you won't have to go through the contractions and all that. I know you will do great! Post a pic asap!!!

I have been thinking about you a ton since your last post! I am sorry that you have to have a C-Section, but at least you won't have to go through labor and then end up in one. I am guessing that when you say the baby is being born at 12:30 that it is the time you are supposed to be ready and in the OR. If that is the case, I say birth time would be 12:48 pm. The birth weight guess is 7 lbs.
15 oz. I wish you the best of luck!!!

HA! I can't stop laughing at how unique and individual you two both are, and how it ALL SHOWS THROUGH in each of your blogging, HAHA! Giselle, I think you're going to have baby Rajko BEFORE the scheduled C-section! Let's say Tuesday evening sometime around 6:00pm. Don't call me a cheater, haha!

Giselle and Noah Rasheta said...

Josh and Allen, you ARE cheaters...you can't wait until I'm in labor and then post the day, you sillies!

Thanks for your comments. They are keeping me laughing and happy through these (really fun) contractions...we'll keep updating!
