So here’s me today before my doctor appointment.
I’m 34 weeks.
Or maybe I’m 36 1/2 weeks.
Because of my issues with my pregnancy with Charlotte, I had an ultrasound last week to check my amniotic fluid and how the baby was growing. I definitely don’t have to worry about this kiddo being growth restricted. It was already weighing around 5 pounds, 11 ounces! All of the measurements showed that the baby is about 2 1/2 weeks ahead of schedule.
So today was my doctor appointment. I was thinking that the midwife would probably change my due date and we’d do normal 36 week appointment stuff (strep test, check for dilation, etc.), but no. This late in the game, they don’t officially change due dates. She does agree that my original dates are probably off and I’m actually closer to what the ultrasound showed though. Which makes sense since I’ve already noticed some signs of labor getting closer. But even though she thinks that I’m more in line with my ultrasound results, we still didn’t do any of the 36 week check-up stuff, and I don’t go back for another two weeks.
I know that no one really ever knows when their baby is going to decide to make his/her debut, but with three other kids at home and all of our family living 20+ hours away, it does make things a bit stressful to have the conflicting dates. Thankfully we have some great friends here who have offered to help with the kids if the little nugget decides to show up before my parents make it out here.
Now to finish getting my to-do list done before he/she arrives….
