35 week appointment, BIG boy!
Mon, 07-23-2012 - 1:40pm

I went in on Friday to both my specialist and my ob.  The specialist appointment, which I thought was going to be my last, went pretty well.  The baby is "practicing breathing",  head is super low, and he's ready to go.  The shock of the day was that he is currently measuring 7 lbs 13 oz!  Because of being so big, they now want me to come in once a week for a quick sono so they can measure him.  Sigh..

Next appointment was to my ob where they did my strep b test, and checked my cervix.  This time my cervix was soft and she said that I was externally dialated, but internally I'm still closed.  I really don't know what this means, but I guess those contractions I've been randomly having are doing something.  I am currently scheduled for a c/s on 08-17-12, and I asked if that was going to change because of his size.  They said it does not.  So August 17th is our date unless he decides to set his own birthdate before then.  I asked if she thought I would make it, and she just kinda giggled, smiled, and said "I donno" in a way that makes me think I could be having this little one any day now.  :smileyvery-happy:
