  • I can't believe I only have one week left!
     


    At my appt. today everything looked good, but she's a little on the small side. They did an ultrasound and she is measuring at 37 wks. 2 days...5 days short of where I am. She's about 6 - 6.5 lbs, which is good in my opinion because at my last ultrasound 4 weeks ago she was 4 - 4.5 lbs. So, she's gained 2 lbs in the last 4 weeks, which is normal, right?...1/2 a pound a week.
     


    Anyway, dr said I am still at 3cm, but now at 70%, and she is still at -2. He's confident that I am going to go into labor on my own before Monday. I kind of agree because this was the first appt that I left with cramping. Just cramping though, not contractions. But in the last hour and a half I've had two contractions...actually just had the second one. They aren't really intense, just enough pain to let me know that they are real. Looks like hubby's not going on that business trip this week, lol.
