The bedrest paid off! (35 week appt.)

I'll start with the most important and then get into the details of my appt. Cervix has not changed since last week! Yahoo

My appointment was 9:00AM so I drove 30 minutes to my appt. after dropping DS off at school, I get there and sign in, then they call my name to the front. The lady tells me that my appt. is tomorrow and I show her my appt card showing that it's today. She has me go to the back to talk to my docs secretary. Ugh! Turns out they made a mistake, but my doctor was up there and said that she's going to see me right away since I have a long drive and it was their mistake. Problem is, next available u/s isn't until 11:00 so I have to wait around the waiting room (thank goodness for Angry Birds)! So I see her and she tells me the great news that my cervix has not changed (still 2 CM, 80% effaced). Last week I was measuring 37 weeks and this week I'm measuring 36 weeks so baby girl has definitely dropped! Afterwards, my doctor offered to let me use her office and play on the internet while I wait for my u/s. I love her! Smile I ended up just going to the waiting room anyways. I'd feel weird just sitting in her office.

So I finally get called for the u/s. She is approximately 6 lbs. 3 oz. U/S tech says that if I go all the way to 40 weeks then she will likely be 8 lbs, but they don't think I will go that far anyways. I know not to put too much faith in the measurements, but it was still fun to get one since I didn't get to with DS. We could see Sophia breathing really fast like she ran a marathon and then she got hiccups. Haha! U/S tech said that she has never seen a baby breathe that much on an u/s and my doc said that its great news. Means her lungs are fully developed! Sophia's feet are to the left side of my belly which explains the rib pain on that side, her butt is to the right, and her head is down. She is completely stretched out and taking advantage of any open space in there. LOL! Here is one my favorite pics I got from today. She was hiding her eyes so all we got was her lips, nose, and chin. I think she has my lips. Smile

DS was a 5 pounder so an 8 pounder kind of freaks me out especially since I'm going to have her natural. I even tore a little with DS so I guess its time I start those perineal massages! She already weighs more than her big brother did at birth! Haha!
