pregnancy update
so I found out last week that my Due Date was wrong I had my anatomy scan btw its a boy Wahoo anyway Im due Nov 9th instead of Dec. so uh yeah thats um pretty close actually.

I actually had not been the lest bit freaked out about a Natural birth B4 I had alot of stuff I wanted to know and figure out and get all lined up and stuff but I wasnt that scared I was pretty confident about it really. but then the last few days I just keep thinking OMG NOV is really only like 2 months from now im gonna be doing this.............im not sure if im ready. I really hate that iv just now started this second guessing thing I hope it goes away.

but all my tests are good and my OB office and the hospital is pro Natural birth and breast feeding or at lest they said they were when I brought it up so that's helpful. I guess Im just doing a little early freakout.

(sorry for anyone who read this when it first posted My computer has a hot key to post things and I cant stop accidently hitting it lol)

Re: pregnancy update
Wow how were they off by that much? Honestly, scans are much less acurate later in pregnancy. They're more accurate in the beginning between 7-10 weeks on average. What was your EDD based on your LMP?

Re: pregnancy update
due in nov is where I was suposed to be the whole time its where LMP had me and its where my first U/S actually had me the dates were just written down wrong.

Its Kind of a confusing story actually my 1st U/S was in the ER so I never saw it. (shortly after I tested positive at home I started bleeding heavily I thought i was mis-carrying but it ended up being a hemorrhage.)

the ER doctor set me up with the OB office & my first meeting there is when I was actually told my due date she said DEC 9th. my proof of pregnancy to get insurance said Dec 9th and all my stuff said due dec 9th.

so I was operating under the assumption I had skipped a period (im pretty irregular honestly) and then gotten pregnant.

When My anatomy scan stared he was measuring to big so she pulled the records from my er visit and acording to the original U/S (the one from the ER) my due date was Nov 9th the whole time. it looks like the doctor who saw me the first time just wrote the wrong month on my intake papers.

Re: pregnancy update
Oh wow! Congratulations on the BOY! Yay! They are so much fun! (Love my girl too, though, ya know! ;))

Second guessing NCB, I think, is totally normal. What you gotta do is start reading tons of birth stories and birthing books if you can get your hands on them. You will feel more empowered! One other thing to remember, though, is that you aren't feeling up to the task yet because you aren't near enough to the end! Lol My midwife with my first dd told me "The last month of pregnancy is what makes a woman want to be in labor" and it really is true. By that point you are SO willing to do whatever it takes to have your baby that you will be rearin' to go!

AHHHHHHHHHHH! Wow that's quite a typo! Well, I'd be excited if someone shaved off a month of my pregnancy lol. I wasn't the glowing pregnant woman type.
