So with only 4 weeks left, the docs start giving me the stats. Today's appointment went swimmingly - just like all the rest. I actually saw the nurse practitioner, Brittany, today. She asked me if I knew how big the baby was and how much I was dilated. Well, I haven't been told any of that. She said that was because I had a great pregnancy so far so the doctor really hasn't worried about any of it and therefore, didn't say anything! I've put on 26 pounds total weight so far. She estimated that little Cole is about 5 1/2 pounds which means if she's right that he'll be somewhere between 6 and 7 pounds depending on when he comes and how accurate she was. So now that we have a guestimate - how about we guess the delivery date and the weight - see the survey to the right and add your guesses to comments as well!
I'm already 3 centimeters dilated which doesn't mean much at this point because he hasn't dropped and I haven't felt a single contraction. We're still expecting an on-time delivery but as Brittany said, "You can deliver any day now - we're just waiting!". Eek! I would be ecstatic if he came early, but not THIS early! Besides, my parents are going on vacation tomorrow and Mom says baby Cole will already be on her bad side if he comes while she is away. Don't worry Mom! He's content doing turns and stretching a whole lot in my belly! Oh, I thought with all of his movement he had turned around and was in the breach position, but he is still head down. Good boy! I don't want to worry about that.
I'll have another appointment next Thursday so stay tuned!
