34 week appointment


Today we went for the 34 week appointment.  First, we had an ultrasound to see how big Paige is now.  She was not cooperating during the ultrasound, so we did not get any good pictures of her face this time.  She is still measuring big, but not as big as we thought at the last appointment.   She is measuring 1 week and 2 days ahead of her actual gestational age, which puts her in the 77th percentile and 5 pounds 12 ounces.  So, if she gains the average 1/2 pound per week from here on out, she will be around 9 pounds.    Also, she is head down, which is obviously good.

For the next 6 weeks I have to start going to the doctor once per week!  Now we know the end is REALLY getting close!!!

    YEA – GREAT NEWS!!! I always liked it when the appointments finally went to once a week! Soon they’ll be saying how dilated you are!! I predict she weighs 8lbs. 8oz. or less at birth – they ARE ALWAYS WRONG!!
