My apt

So I get called in, got my BP taken, weighed, then the nurse asked me to leave a urine sample...I walk to the bathroom, go then come out....WELL I forgot to leave a sample!! lol I remembered as I was washing my hands and cracking up!! (I got to leave one after my apt!) So I spoke with my dr and he said he said that my fundal height was a little off, and he thinks the baby is measuring small so we have scheduled an u/s for 4 weeks. He's pretty sure that its just because I'm small, but I'm glad he wants to check it out. It's getting me a little nervous, but I am also SUPER excited to see this LO again and make sure its a girl! Also I found out that the pain I've been having right around my scar are BH!! I never had them with DS, so I had no clue. Oh and I asked him that if I get a csect if he cuts above, below or right on, and he said he cuts above and below and makes a new scar. He said people heal better from that. I thought that was pretty funny...its like a mini tummy tuck! lol

Woo hoo for the extra u/s! Can't go wrong with that Smile Also, about a week before my DD was born, I managed to finagle an extra u/s to be 100% sure that she was a girl, so I totally understand!!! Can't wait to see the pics Smile Oh, and mommy brain strikes again! I bet I would have forgotten to pee in a cup, too.

I had another u/s done at 37 weeks with DS because I wasn't measuring right and it was because he was way down in my pelvis. I'm sure all is well!

I've always measured small with all of my pregnancies. With my last two I was measuring 5 weeks behind at around 32 weeks. Each time they sent me for an ultrasound and the baby was measuring right on! I just carry my babies way down in my pelvis. I was actually measuring 31 when I was in labor at 39 weeks with my first! She came out at close to 8 pounds too.

Yay for a good appt! Hopefully she's measuring right on at the u/s and it's just because she's riding low that you seem to be off.

Those measurements always seem off! With my first they swore he was going to be 12 lbs, he was 8-5. But I'm short waisted so baby has no where to go but out.
