We had our 36 week u/s today right before our appt. It was to do measurements and check size. Baby Harper's organs all looked great. She is head down and has dropped quite a bit, which explains the way down low pain I've been having the last few days. Her legs are measuring 39 weeks and her head is measuring 40+ weeks, at 9.4cm! Overall her weight is estimated at 7 lbs 6 oz already, which surprised me, but DH is 6'3" and I am 5'9", so we are not small people She is is the 95th percentile overall.
I had my Group B Strep swab done and then my cervix checked. I am 1cm dilated and 50% effaced. The doctor also said she could feel her head way down there right when she checked me. I go back next Monday for my next check up. I had to see a different doctor today since my OB is on vacation this week. She mentioned that my OB might talk about inducing me a week or so early due to baby's size, but I seriously doubt she will. And, I really don't want to be induced if I don't have to. I know the u/s can be off, and I'd rather her come when she's good and ready! My husband said he'd rather have a big baby that he's not afraid to hold, lol.
So we will see what happens! I am really excited and can't believe I'm down to the last few weeks
