36 1/2 Week Appointment

My appointment went wonderfully! Gaining just the right amount of weight--I was worried that I had gained too much the past month with my birthday and the 4th of July--but I guess not!

My belly is now measuring small...I'm assuming it's because she's dropped, but my doctor said if it gets to be a 3 cm difference I'll have to have another ultrasound although at my last ultrasound Madelyn's size was perfect.

She then told me as long as I don't go into labor before Saturday (37 weeks, she'll be considered full term) then we'll both be fine. We went and did all of the pre-admission paperwork after my appointment...it's crazy that we're to this point already! I still remember doing the pre-admission paperwork when I was pregnant with Isabella.

I'm a little upset because my next appointment isn't until July 20th....I'll be over 38 weeks! And they didn't check for any dialation today....ugh. Maybe I'll go into labor before then? Who knows. I just don't know why they are making me wait almost 2 weeks until then. Oh, well.

That's it for now...just wanted to give everyone a little update on how Madelyn and I are doing!

Glad to finally get to check the comp. and read about your appt. Am glad it went so well and I, too, wish you were going sooner.. Did the Dr. tell you when to go back or an appt. person? Esp. since they are watching the tummy size and all think they'd want you in a week.. But then I'm just an old gma who has had 5 babies, so what do I know??
Am getting so excited for you all...Am so anxious to see her first pics etc.. as we won't be able to see her for a long time. :-( Keep us posted on any new developments!
love you, gma (an gpa)

My next appointments was spaced two weeks out, too. I thought that was odd since I had to go every week during my last month with Avery.

Oh well. I guess it's a good sign that things are progressing well :-)

I can't wait to see pics of Madelyn, too!
