Dr. appt today... (xp)

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!

So jealous Wink

Hope babe is not too big! Of course, U/S estimates can be way off. Try not to freak out about the results!

I don't think I have ever heard a large baby ultrasound preduction coming true... it's so exciting that you're 3cm though! Biggrin

I don't think its fluid, because the ultrasound tech checked and my levels were totally normal. The peri office called me this morning and scheduled me for an ultrasound on Monday morning, right before my OB appt... so Im very excited about both appt needless to say! I just keep thinking that it will be like with my son Max, where I'll be dilated to 5 and they'll send me right over to have him. I keep having lots of pressure, no contractions though... but the pressure seems to be enough to make me dialate. The scary thing is he hasn't even dropped yet, so I know when he does that might kick things into full gear...
