Christian and I had our 37 week checkup today. All of Christian's current vital stats have come back as perfect and he is growing right on target. While meeting with the doctor, he mentioned that my stomach was measuring at 34 weeks. When I inquired why I was measuring so small, the doctor reassured me that I was a tall woman and that Christian is currently getting himself in position for delivery. He then did a test to do a measurement of my dilation and I am currently dilated at 1 cm. I asked my doctor when he felt that Christian might join us. He told me that he thought I could go into labor later next week or early the following week.
As I posted in my last update, Christian is going to come when he is ready. It is exciting to think that he might be here in early February.
Thank you for reading. Baby bump and nursery pictures to come shortly.
I wanted to share an interesting update with everyone. I went to the OB last week for my 34 week check up and after a very nice visit, the doctor informed me that I was measuring a little small. He then proceeded to say that he thought that I was actually at 33 weeks and not 34. That would make Christian's due date now Feb 16th or 17th... not the 11th. Side note, this is not a doctor that I have seen often and I am not yet sure I trust the fact that we need to change his due date but Christian is going to come when he decides that he is good and ready.
I would be interested to hear your thoughts. Please submit your guess on the due date in the comment area below.
