Baby oh Baby!
I went to my doctor's appointment today (just a normal check-up on the baby). I love my doctor, but the wait is forever! My appointment was at 10:30 and I left the building at 12:34. Kind of frustrating because that's a very normal occurance there. However, she's definately worth the wait. I've never liked a doctor so much in my life. Anyway, the germans are great with pregnancies (of course only until you go to the hospital and actually have the baby. Then you're just on your own!). Every time I go in, they give me an ultrasound. Well, I am now having to go in every two weeks for check-up. Last check-up the doctor did measurements on the baby to determine the size and approx. weight of the baby. He was a little over four pounds, which I guess was ok. Well, today she did the measurements again and the baby is already a little over SIX POUNDS! Heaven help me! To top that all off, she said it doesn't look like I'll be having this baby early at all. If anything, I'll probably have it late. He's still very high. She said she's not worried about his size, he'll just be a really big baby. Easy for her to say, she's not the one who has to push the sucker out! I'm due in six and a half weeks, so I still have quite a bit of time. Eva wasn't even close to being this large at this point in my pregnancy and she ended up being 9 pounds 2 oz. I'll be fine...right?!
