I had my 36 weeks appointment last Friday. Took me a few days to update because the stomach bug hit our house hard this past weekend. First Jackson, then DH and then yesterday I was in bed all day with the darn thing. We all seem to be on our way to recovery. Just hoping that Jacob doesn't get it now.
On Friday I had my 36 weeks appointment. Dr did my GBS test. Haven't gotten the results back yet. My blood pressure was good, weight was good and urine was good. My dr was in surgery when I got there so his nurse practioner did the growth scan. She measured my little boy at 5 lbs 7 oz which was 2 oz less than he weighed 2 weeks ago. So of course I started to freak out. I know they can be off but I couldn't figure out why he was measuring smaller. So they sent me back out to the waiting room to wait on my dr. Thankfully he got there soon so I didn't have to wait long. he did a scan and he measured baby to be 6 lbs 1 oz which was 1/2 lb bigger than 2 weeks ago. He thinks the high risk dr who did my last scan overestimated the weight and that is why it seemed like baby wasn't gaining much. he did say my fluid levels looked good and everything else looked good. he did schedule another scan for this Friday just to double check and make sure baby was gaining weight. he did help put my mind more at ease about baby's weight gain. So i'm hoping that come friday we will have some more weight gain on this little guy.
We did go ahead and tentatively schedule his induction date for Feb 17 so if he's not here before then we will go ahead and induce on that date.
Thanks ladies. I'll be glad after Friday and I see that this little guy has gained some more weight. My husband is now counting down the days. I think he's more excited than I am to meet our little boy.
Thank you *Kiliki* for my beautiful siggy
That is so exciting! My sister has been having issues with her little boy giving her trouble too, he hadn't looked like he was gaining weight, now her scan yesterday showed that her placenta was failing so they are monitoring her even more closely and think that she will have him within the week - she is just a few days behind you, maybe you will both have them on the same day Can't wait to meet both little boys!!
