Appointment updates

So I've had a MFS & regular OB appt Friday & Monday

Both babies are growing like weeds. Both were 2lbs 13oz on Friday and both doctors keep telling me we are giant babies :). The funny thing is I already knew my family grew big babies, my oldest sister was 12 lbs and both of her kids were born early and > 9lbs. Heart-rates were great too and blood pressure was still good. My specialist told us Friday that he will not let me go past 38 weeks so they have set my latest date at 9/6 which is 1 day after DH's birthday. I talked to my OB today and she talked about some alternatives to start trying at 36 weeks to help get ready and hopefully start labor on my own around 37 weeks. I'm really glad she is being supportive of my wishes to avoid pitocin.

She told me my belly is full term....I don't know how i'm going to last another 9 weeks of growing!

My 1 hr glucose test was today - should get results tomorrow or Thursday....fingers crossed all is good!
