Friday I will be 32 weeks into this pregnancy. They scheduled me 2 weeks ago for a sizing ultrasound and OB appointment. At that time they told me that I HAD to see one of the doctors in the group since it’s been way too long since I’ve seen them (not my fault). At 2:50 I was in homeroom with my students and my cell phone rang. Sure enough it was my OB’s office calling to tell me that the doctor I was going to see was off at the hospital for a delivery, but to come for the ultrasound.
So I went in for the ultrasound at 3:30. The technician confirmed what I thought, the little guy is head down (now at least). I had a feeling about this since I always feels hiccups way low – talk about a strange feeling. Considering my due date of May 18th he is measuring in the 52nd percentile, which is about 8 days big for the date. He’s approximately 4lbs3oz, which is nothing too alarming there. With NHL I was always measuring 2 weeks ahead by ultrasound, and sure enough my water broke at 38 weeks. . . go figure! Mind you ultrasound sizing at this point is far from an exact science, so it will be interesting to see if they let me go past 38 weeks given NHL was as large as I will be able to birth, and he was only 7lbs10oz.
After the ultrasound I went to reschedule my appointment. They told me just to come in tomorrow after work. I told them I would be there by 3:30. I have an appointment with the one doctor I really like – the one that was out delivering 2 weeks ago. If she can’t see me, then there is another doctor there.
Other than that things are going pretty well. Lack of sleep is the norm and I’m exhausted after a full day of teaching. NHL has been really cute lately. Every day when JL picks him up from nursery school he asks if the baby is here yet. Sometimes he’ll ask me in the morning and then look at me and say “Oh, guess not!” This morning as I was leaving for work he asked me if I was going to the “baby hospital” – LOL! I told him no and he was very disappointed. Can you say he’s in for the shock of his life when this little guy invades his world?!?!
I will update anything big that happens at my appointment tomorrow.
