growth u/s appt scheduled today

hello ladies,
keeping you all updated on me...today i have my 39 weeks 4 day appointment today as well as jaydens growth ultrasound appointment scheduled right after. like i posted a few weeks ago, the docs said they would keep me pregnant as much as they could due to measuring smaller than he should, was 5 lbs 9oz on the 14th, and i know u/s's can be subjective but i was told nothing was wrong with him or me, just measured small...with that said i'll keep you all updated and post pics as soon as i get em.

(oh and i forgot to add, am a bit p/o'd they are making me see a male dr. today which i told em from the get go i do NOT want a male doc, so i tried to change my appointment to a lady doc and the next appt available was june 18th , wtf...the secretary asked if i'd like to change to that date, and i said umm i don't think so i'm due friday, i'll just suck it up. i feel more at ease with a lady doc than a guy!!! don't know why but it just put me in a bad mood yesterday.)

will update after my appointments!

I understand how you feel about the male Dr. I definitely prefer a female OB, but when I was delivering DS, the on-call OB was male, and I could have cared less at that point Biggrin Just try to remember that this is their job and it's nothing they haven't seen before. One of our close friends has really little babies too... they're always totally healthy, just small. Nothing wrong with that Biggrin

I would be annoyed, too, if they scheduled me with a male vs female if I had requested it. I don't think they always take into consideration past experiences (abuse, rape, etc.) Rude for sure.

I hope the appointment goes well. Just remember that the u/s can only estimate to +/- a pound either way.....I'm going to "guess" your baby is 6 1/2 lbs-- and I bet I'm just as close as your u/s. Studies have shown that a mother's intuition about the size of their baby is more accurate than the u/s-- isn't that wild and awesome? Mama's know so much about their babies and bodies!
