Appointment

28 week appt today and GD test. I really hope I pass! I don't want to take the three hour. Next appointment my doc wants an u/s to check growth, because I am measuring small (fundal height only 26 today). Biggest news? It looks like I have a c/s date, 10/31! My kids think that is so cool Smile they are already planning his birthday Halloween costume.

Isn't it funny how the GD test can be so nerve wrecking? I had my blood draw for that yesterday at my 27 week appt. I was measuring 2.5 weeks ahead yesterday which the midwife said "close enough. As long as it's within 3 weeks - plus or minus - it's all good." These kiddos have growth spurts too. I remember mine going between being behind, on time, and ahead by 2 weeks with DS in the 3rd tri. Smile

Thanks! I assume (and hope) tha is all it is. I've never measured small before though, so it makes me a little nervous. Fortunately my appt is in less the two weeks so I don't have to wait long!

A friend of mine had the same issue. She measured a head or on time with all her kids except #4. They did an ultrasound and found that he was pushed towards her spine... he ended up being her biggest at almost 9 lbs lol

I will be 37 weeks on halloween, and my sister keeps telling me thats when I will have wee dude. I will take it, seeing as my last 2 came at 36 weeks... so, I went and bought a preemie Halloween sleeper for him, just in case Wink

Yes, as uncomfortable as I've been, he may just be more inside. That sleeper is really cute! I have a little halloween outfit, but I think now we will get a little sleeper or gown and a hat for pics!

Hope all goes well with your gd! I failed the 1 hour and passed the 3 hour a couple weeks ago! I"m measuring a week ahead. But the doc also said to me today they ahve growth spurts and measuring a + or - week ahead isn't nothing to worry about. Awesome c/s date! I also had that date to choose from but my kids said they didn't want to share his bday with a "holiday" lol! Also I had to coincide it with where my other 2 kids would be, and a thursday works so they won't miss school and the weekend is there. So much planning!

Yay for having a date!! Thats so hard to have to get out of the hospital having a new baby and then going back with your other child a few days later! I hope that the transition goes well for you and the kids!
