C-section is scheduled for next friday! Peri said I will not be on mag unless I start showing signs of PE which is awesome. non-stress test and growth scan done, one more to go.... I know why I'm so uncomfortable, baby is SEVEN pounds 3 oz already!!! 34 weeks 6 days by their date (35 weeks 4 days by mine). Lil guy was practicing breathing and moving around like crazy. Head and tummy are in the 90% range. Doc thinks he will be seven and a half to 8 pounds next week. Our bestfriends just had a baby and this doc was with in ounces of their baby's birth weight. My only new concern now is his cord is close to his neck, but the doc said i shouldn't be a problem since I am a c-section, just keep watching movements, blood flow looks great, and 1 in 4 babies have the cord around them somewhere. Blood pressure still good... hoping for an uneventful last week, and good easy c-section/recovery and of course healthy baby!
