I'm 34w pregnant today - can't believe it! My c/s is going to be the 16 or 17 of June - so only 5w/5w1d away, and I cannot wait!

Pregnancy seems to be going well, and Emersyn is doing everything she is meant to do, however she is proving to be very large (weight wise), so my high-risk ob has been having me do growth u/s once a month, to make sure everything is still looking good - at this point, she is over the 90th percentile for weight & 80th for general growth. I am having my next u/s at 35w6d - and if she is still over the 90th percentile for weight, I have to do the GTT again... I passed it with flying colours at 28 weeks, but the high risk ob is a bit concerned i may have developed GD later in pregnancy - though she said that chances are very slim, and it looks like Emersyn is just naturally a big girl!

I am finding all of a sudden though - as I did with Gaby, that my anxiety is back... Everyday I have a freakout that something is wrong & she's going to die.. if she doesn't move a lot I freak out, if she moves a lot more than usual, I freak out.. if I feel weird pains, I freak out. By the time I got to 40 weeks with Gaby, the anxiety had me not sleeping, and a complete mess, so I hope I don't get that bad THIS time - I'm having her at 39w anyway, so at least I know I won't be going to 42w0d, like I did with Gab!!!!!!

anyway, that's me
hope everyone else is doing well

I have the same fears, I totally hear you. He's being too quiet... he's thrashing around too much... he's too big... something is going to go wrong... the worries never end! I guess it's a recurrent loss thing. Plus I've never had a normal pgcy until now, knock on wood Hang in there, sounds like Emersyn is doing great! What was her estimated weight at the last scan?

thanks for your reply Lisa not long for us now!

My last growth u/s was 32 weeks & she was weighing an estimated 4lb8oz.. I have another growth u/s on the 25th May - so interested to see what my little girly is weighin by then. Going by the growth chart she should be 3.3kg-ish by then, which is EEK 7lb3oz!!!!!!!!!! Hopefully she'll only be around 4kg at birth (8lb8oz)
