Dr. appt today... **Update!**

So I just came from my appt... and am still adjusting to the news! If you all can remember, two weeks ago at my 34 week appt I was measuring 36 weeks, and the ultrasound estimated his weight was 6lbs 8oz already. So now Im 36 weeks and he's measuring 41 weeks! She's sending me to a peri to get another ultrasound sometime this week to check on his size again. Here's the shocker for me... Im already dilated 3 cm... my head is still spinning! Basically I could have him any day. I know with my son Max, when I went in for my 39 week appt and was dilated 5 cm they sent me straight over to the hospital. My next appt is on Monday so we'll see if I make it that long!

*Update* So the peri office called earlier and scheduled an appt for Monday morning to do the ultrasound... right before my normal OB appt... so Im super excited for both! I keep thinking that I'll go in and be dilated to 5 and they'll just send me right over to have him... just like with my son Max! Im making sure DH has the morning off with me just in case... he'll get the kids off to school while Im at the ultrasound and then he'll meet me at my Dr office for my regular appt. Im getting so excited!!

You are pretty much 37 weeks! Sounds like an induction may not be necessary afterall! now you are making me think I should have gotten checked today. Do they think you could walk around at 3cm dialated for a while and not go into labor? Are you having any other signs of labor?

Wow! I'm most excited about your dilation!

Although you could walk around for a little while at 3cm but I don't think you go late!!

IDK what to think. Im sure I could walk around, but at this point Im so uncomfortable and at least I know why... because my little man is measuring full term!! Now Im just worried about making it to the hospital if I do go into active labor or my water breaks. I've been having light contractions here and there, but nothing too serious... but the pressure has been horrible.

I already called my boss and told her about the appt. She's officially on vacation as of tomorrow, so I've done all I can do!

Jenn, I am ready in a sense and Im not lol. I just need another car seat and Im good... but I don't want him out yet... actually the thought of him coming in days rather than weeks makes me want to cry. I'll miss him in there...

Take him w/ you to see breaking dawn. lol. He will still be a sleepy baby & you can just nurse or feed him. Smile I know it's not the same, but we have to sacrifice as mommies & it's better than taking a 1.5 yo.

Lol I was thinking about Breaking Dawn!! I would take him but I already have my ticket to the midnight show and its already sold out, so there would be nowhere for me to put his seat!! Maybe I could just hold him lol...

You better invest in a sling or something specifically for the movie - because I think he wants to see it too - from the outside of your womb.

They should not charge you for a seat for an infant. Just smuggle him in w/ your purse like he's some candy. Biggrin Maybe you can call the theater today & ask them the policy.

Most theaters do not charge for kids under 2, sometimes 3. I'd put him in a wrap or in my arms and take him with me.

No our theatres don't charge for him either, but Im going to see the very first showing of breaking Dawn!!! The tickets are already sold out, meaning there will be no available seats for me to put an infant seat in! I'll have to get a sling for him lol... since Im not missing the movie and no way am I leaving him at home!!
