So I had my 33 week appt yesterday. It went amazingly well. Starting yesterday I now go in every week for a u/s and NST. Then at 36 weeks I start twice a week. At least I get great pics of EJ ;)
So my EDD by ovulation is February 28th, and by LMP it is the 23rd. They are going with ovulation even though EJ is measuring over 33 weeks. Yikes!! SO my offical induction date is not until the 15th. I wanted the 9th but oh well....
EJ is measuring 4lbs 10oz and has the chubbiest cheeks! Everything looked perfect with him and I am so over the moon! My NST showed my contractions but nothing bad so we are fine there as well. My weight gain is 29 pounds which I am not thrilled with, but I guess it could be worse. I still have 6 weeks though so I am sure I will hit 40pounds like I did with Austin.
I also got the go ahead to deliver at the hospital I wanted (where we had Austin). It is much more natural than the hospital they wanted me to deliver at. You stay in the same room the whole time and the rooms are HUGE with wood floors and a bed for your guest. They are super suportive there and you can use birthing balls ect that they provide. I am so relieved and thrilled!!!!
SO all in all I had a great day. I bought EJs coming home outfit as well! It is really sinking in that we are bringing home a baby...and soon!!!This makes me nervous and thrilled all at the same time. I can not wait to meet this sweet boy and smell his hair and just kiss his cheeks. I am so in love with him. On the other hand I am still a little nervous but I know it will work out. Now if someone could promise me a pain free birth I would really be thrilled ;)Sigh....
So here is one of his 3d pics. He is head down and the cord is infront of his face so the pic isnt the best but you can see his face. Enjoy ;)
