Wednesday was our "38 week appointment", though by our calculations, it should have been our 40 week one. I had the midwife check me, and I am 3 cm dilated with a very soft cervix. I asked for a fetal weight as I fear a large baby. Not fear as in afraid to have one-- just that I think this baby is larger than my other two and I want to be prepared for the possibility, considering with Ephraim they wanted to do a c-section if he was bigger than 9.5 pounds, as I had a difficult time with Bretton who was 9. So, the next day we went for a fetal weight. The baby is measuring at about 41 weeks (when doctor says we were actually at 38w4d). Baby's weight was 8 pounds 11 ounces. Boy, do I hope that is a high estimate and not a low one!
Again, the baby wouldn't show us a profile! :( Stubborn kid we have on our hands, apparently! But that is alright-- soon enough we can admire it all we want! I hope that day is sooner rather than later. :)
