Dr Appt, 33 weeks

Okay, so I knew that I felt WAY more pregnant than I actually am. In 2 weeks, I've grown 3 cm! Being that I was already measuring 2.5 weeks ahead, I'm now measuring 3.5 weeks ahead! I was 33 weeks along last Friday and today I measured 37 weeks. Dr Weiler put it bluntly -- I'm growing a big baby! She said there's no way they'll let me go to my due date (WOO HOO!). For now, she wants me to tentatively think about inducing on either Nov 25 or 28, so I avoid Thanksgiving and can be at home for the holiday. At my upcoming appointments they'll be able to tell if it needs to be sooner or later than that, after checking my cervix and making sure I am actually ready to have the baby. They don't like to go more than 2 weeks early just to be sure the lungs are developed. Matt thinks they just have my due date wrong. :)

Everything continues to go smoothly. Baby is very active and healthy, and so am I. I've gained 21.5 lbs overall and my blood pressure is excellent. I go back in two weeks and will hopefully know more then! :) I guess we better get a move on naming him, getting baby clothes sorted through and washed, and getting the kids' bedrooms rearranged!

Remember way back when and people thought you were more pregnant than you said! Now you can laugh in all of their faces because you really were several weeks more pregnant! Or, this is just one massive baby! (But I hope not too massive for your sake!) :)
