Had a follow-up growth scan this afternoon and weekly NST. All looked good and baby measured around 7 lbs 6 oz. Since growth wasn't off the charts OB didn't feel it was necessary to move up due date/surgical date.
I told her that I was pleased with the weight (Baby Boy was 6 lbs 10 days ago) and she did warn me not to get too excited about the weight. She said that b/c his head was so far down in the pelvis the sonographer could not get an accurate cephalic/head measurement so he could actually be a bit bigger than that.
I really think that his growth has slowed a bit b/c I've been doing such a great job on managing my blood sugars; especially those fasting blood sugar readings.
Now if I go into labor on my own before 7/29 that's no big deal, but it would be nice if he cooperates and stays in there until next Thursday (10 days) as my parents are traveling from St. Louis to help me with the 2 littles. I do have a middle of the night back up plan with my neighbor!
Hope everyone else is doing well. So many of us are due with in days/week of each other. I'm getting really excited!
