34 week appt

I just got home from my 34 week appt (more like 34 1/2 at this point). Everything looks great! They did the final ultrasound to check his dilated kidneys and everything is back to normal! They are measuring at 5mL and 6mL each, and they want them no higher than 7mL at this point.

Little man is measuring about 4-4 1/2 lbs. and is in the 24 percentile...exact same as DS was! He's also really REALLY low! Which, I knew from feeling where he is, but I think 2 weeks ago my OB thought I was exaggerating because I was measuring right on. But the ultrasound tech had to use the wand on my lower pubic bone to be able to get a head shot of him. And he's so low you couldn't get a clear shot of his face. The perinatologist said they would normally bring me back in 4 weeks for another US but that he doesn't think I'll still be carrying him at that point!

We'll see! My doctor seems pretty convinced he's going to come early too and told me to get the car seat in the car and bags ready. So time to pack...but the car seat won't go in until he's here. DH will be coming home to check on DS anyway, so he'll do it then.

I go back in 2 weeks for my next appt and the GBS test, then it's every week after that! I can't believe how fast this is going!
