I had to move my appointment up to today cause the other day I ended up in the hospital for decreased movement. He had a few dips in his HB but they said he was ok so sent me home and told me to get a sooner appointment. I saw the midwide today instead of my regular OB. I have to say I like her much better. This cough has got so out of hand that it seems to be effecting LO so she prescribed me some meds to try and help. Then they did the HB, not where it normally is but still ok. Well, when I was in the hospital on Wedneday they did an U/S and this LO is just growing like crazy. It's been a little less than a month since my last U/S...only 3 weeks I think and they said he was around 4lbs12oz, well according to the measurements he is up to 7lbs1oz already. So I have my weekly appointments now and next week she is setting me up for another U/S cause she is thinking that she wants me to deliver at 38 weeks! That's in just 2 weeks!!! And suprisingly I have only gained 1 lb this entire pregnancy. I was wearing heavy jeans today so they said I'm really at 0lb weight gain.
You can do this! With luck the u/s measurements for you are too high.
Good luck and KUP!
I'm so, so glad someone finally prescribed you medicine! Everyone is always so worried about how the medicine will affect the baby that they forget that if mom is really sick that is going to affect the baby, too. lol
I agree with Jackie. Since ultrasound weight measurements can be a pound or two off in either direction, hopefully he's one of the ones that is measuring bigger than he actually is! But, hey, everyone I know who has had 'big' babies has said it wasn't as big a deal as everyone made it out to be. I've heard the extra baby fat actually helps them slide out easier.

So glad that you finally got some meds!! I know that you have been having issues with that for a while now! I hope that the u/s is off a bit and he is a little smaller!! Cant wait to see your little man!
Wow, you're almost there! Glad they gave you something for the cough so you can get some relief!
