Todays Check up and now I'm up to weekly visits!!!!!

Today's check up went GREAT, b/p was 102/69 and my weight stayed the same from 2 weeks ago! WOO-HOO! Smile

She said I was carrying great and baby Kyla's heartbeat sounds great! I had a few questions on my mind and such about if i'll get another sonogram and all, and as i left her office I realized, that her and the nurse kept saying I was 34 weeks and a day... that doesn't jive with what my due date suggests and I didn't realize it until i got home... could something have changed and they know and just forgot to inform me or are they charting wrong? The only thing that this DOES jive with is the first due date i was given, of November 18 - but then after my first sonogram they changed my due date to November 24....

in any case, she said i can go for the sonogram at 35 weeks so i can make my appointment for any time next week... i'm thinking of just going ahead and making the appointment for next week, because wouldn't that reveal the actual amount of weeks she is grown? well thats what i'm going to do, i'm gonna make the appointment for Monday, or hope to get an appointment for Monday the 15th. i am SOOOOO excited and SO happy that today's visit went so well. and now i'm up to going every week! WOW!!! Yahoo

Excited for you to see LO again! My doctor said the later measurements are not as accurate in terms of due date. Did they just want to check on her size one last time or is it common where youare at to do another sonogram? I am going every other week now until 37 weeks (it will actually be 37.5 weeks) and then 1 weekly and then baby the next. But we will see once we get closer. I would love to see LO again. GL and congrats on seeing LO again!

Sounds like a good appt. Here weekly appts dobt start till 36 weeks, unless there is reason to have you go more often. I have a sonogram tomorrow to check on how wee dude is doing, his amnio levels, and so on. I am hoping to grt more answers, and a plan... I also have a feeling that we may start nsts depending on what the levels look like, and maybe get a plan of when they will induce if he doesnt cone on his own. We shall see Smile

U/s for dating is basically useless at this point. I'd call them up and talk to them about your EDD and sticking with the later one (after all, better to let the baby back than to risk baby coming too soon if something were to happen). Definitely odd to me for your EDD to be confused at this point! Glad that the appt went great!

I can't believe my next appt (next week at 36 weeks) starts my weekly appts! The MWs did say they may want to do a quick u/s for positioning if they can't tell easily by feel (Zoe is doing a lot of flipping at this point so I might request that we wait another week or two before getting concerned).

Hope you get a plan Kier!

Thanks Smile I just know that with the amnio levels being low that sooner than later its going to be better for him to be out than in. Also, wiyh his movements being less, and his dcells, I would rathet that they keep a closer eye on things. I am also going to ask about getting the steroid shots for his lungs,. I cant stand up and get anything done without hqving contractions, so Id rather be safe than sorry. I know the negative fetal fib test is a good indicator that hell be in for another week from thur, but its still no guarantee Sad

That's strange about the due date. Like Jackie said though, u/s isn't very reliable at this point for dating. Yay for starting weekly appts! I always felt it made the time go by faster.

yea - this is just to check fetal weight, amni levels and such. i got a u/s appontment for 10/17, and my next dr appt will be 10/16 - i am going to keep it at the front of my mind to pay attention to how many weeks they say i am and if it doesn't agree with my 11/24 due date i'm going to ask how.
thanks guys Smile

Good for you. Better to get it cleared up sooner rather than later! Like Jackie said, unless there's really good evidence to the contrary, better to stick with the later due date.

Yay for moving to weekly appointments and glad you'll get to see your little one again. Sometimes dr's and nurses do mess up when they say your due date is. I would just question it when your at your next appointment.
