    Default Scan picture from today :)

    We had a great afternoon. Our early pregnancy assessment unit set up a scan for us a few weeks ago just as reassurance everything was ok, given the scare we had early on. I'd not heard the baby yet on the doppler so was quite pleased to have this even though I wasn't too worried.

    Everything looks beautiful! The fibroids have moved the baby right over to my right hand side up near my bellybutton, but it is totally fine and very active. We saw it really dancing around. They didn't measure the heart rate but we saw it pumping, and the crown rump measurement was 4cm.

    The other nice thing is that having been put back 6 days a few weeks ago, I was moved forward 4 days, so am 11 weeks tomorrow. I have to update the ticker.

    Here's the baby at 10 weeks and 6 days

    Thanks for sharing your picture. The EDD, no matter how scientific they try to make it, seems to have a lot of wiggle room from appt to appt. In the end the baby will come when he or she is ready no matter what date is picked. Maybe they should throw the whole date method out and just pick a target week and be settled with it

    I think they are trying to pin it down as much as they can because if the same thing happens with this one as with DS, it'd be dangerous if labour started. I'm high risk for cord prolapse unfortunately, but they also don't like to take any baby out before 38 weeks. I think they are lining up with the date I thought it was, so I'm confident it will be fine.

    Yes that would be reason to want to know the date. I hope you didn't find my comment before flippant towards your situation. I was just commenting on how many of us have had our dates shifted this way and that, the date starts to seem a little arbitrary as far as some healthcare providers are concerned

    No Christina, didn't read it that way at all You're totally right that these things are arbitrary and they are just having to make a best guess. It was weird last time knowing what his birthday would be a month before he came out!

    On this topic I think this article in today's news makes very interesting reading, a study about due dates and gestation naturally varying by up to 5 weeks:
    BBC News - Pregnancy length 'varies naturally by up to five weeks'

    When DS came out at 39+4 I was showing no signs of labour but as I was pretty sure about my dates thought he'd be well cooked. He was nearly 9lbs, but covered head to foot in thick thick vernix, which always made me wonder how much longer he'd have been in my tummy for if I could have gone naturally. He also needed an hour under a heat lamp later on the day he was born to help settle his lungs.
