Due Date!

Today is my official delivery date, but alas, no stork, no baby, no nothing...It seems that the little rascal is content where he is and has no plans on leaving his comfortable abode. So, we wait and wait.

At this point, I'd really like to have him join the outside world so that I can have my uterus back. He's getting very big, which equals very uncomfortable for me. And, not to mention, we'd like to meet the little kiddo!

We had an ultrasound done last week since my fundal measurement was smaller than prior weeks, just to make sure that he was still growing and that the decrease was due to him dropping and  not anything else. Everything checked out just fine and the little guy is measuring within the range albeit a little smaller than the actual date (38w vs 39w). But, I was told this was ok, because ultrasound measurements done at this stage are not as accurate since the babes are too big and it's hard to get good measurements when they're all squished up.

Tomorrow, I go in for another doctor's appointment to do a non stress test and see if, again, everything is a-ok to let me go past my due date and then I'm assuming that they'll probably schedule a date for induction if the little guy decides that he is not going to arrive without a little prodding. I'd really like to avoid doing that, so I might ask for a membrane sweep (supposedly, helps to get the process started).

Let's hope that he decides to arrive soon!

Sooz - I hope your baby arrives soon and gives you back your uterus!!! lol.

I wish I had been able to keep our boys in longer - they were born on April 5th at 32 weeks because I developed preeclampsia. I am so glad you had a pretty uneventful pregnancy!

I hope he decides to check out of Hotel Sooz soon - ha! You've made him to comfie.

Little guy is just hanging out in there, eh? Well, at the end of the day that's a good thing, just means he'll be nice and healthy when he comes out. Hang in there, just a little while longer now!
