So a few months ago, I was getting scheduled for another ultrasound by my Ob/Gyn. I was curious as to why I was getting another ultrasound, and she told me because one of his kidneys was a little dilated and she wanted to check on it. The dilation got a little bigger by the next visit, so they scheduled us an appointment with ultrasound specialists. We had our appointment with them, but they were hardly concerned with his kidney. They were more concerned with his weight. They wanted to check on his weight a month later, which was today. According to the ultrasound, our baby boy weighs 7 pounds 15 ounces at 35 weeks and 2 days. Last month the u/s tech told us measuring the weight of a baby via ultrasound wasn’t very accurate, and they can be off by about 25% either way. Meaning he could be bigger or smaller. I’m a little worried that I might have to have a c-section, I’d rather give birth naturally, but if I must have one then I must have one. At least with a c-section, it will be scheduled and our family will have plenty of time to make arrangements to come visit us. We live 2 hours away and our family members don’t have the most reliable vehicles.
I guess I’m just anxious for him to get here, and I have a feeling he will come before the due date. I don’t want to go over the due date, but heard it is pretty common. Everyday things are getting harder and harder to do. I have to scoot to the end of our couch to get up, it is difficult to turn around in the bed at night, and I can’t walk or stand too long without my back killing me. I know it pales in comparison to the precious life inside of me, but I’m ready for him to be here. I can’t wait to hold him, kiss him, and love on him. I always knew I wanted kids, but never really thought of the actual day. Even if I did, it is nothing like actually getting to feel everything, the kicks and the pains. I wouldn’t take back a single moment.
Counting down the days til our Parker gets here!!
Stay tuned for more sharing!
