Weekly Doc Visit Update

Wednesday's are our official weekly doctor visits.

Keith's Version of the Doctor Visit:

The doctor said last week that Carli could be anywhere from 7 lbs to 7.5 lbs. Resa was not dialated at all, but this was normal with first babies. This week, he estimated Carli to be around 7.5 lbs to 8 lbs. Still not dialated, but totally normal. He expects Carli to be a normal size, healthy baby and things are going extremely well.

Resa's Version of the Doctor Visit:

So, last week, I measured at 37 cm, right on for 37 weeks. Carli was a whooping 7 lbs and quite content to be "baking" in her momma's tummy. Doc says I wasn't dialated and to not worry...only I have a 7 lb baby in my tummy, whose got to come out some way or another AND she still could be in there "baking" for up to 41 weeks!! That's 4 more weeks!!

This week, I didn't gain a pound on the scale - good news. Belly measured at 39 cm - okay, so my belly grew a bit. He estimated her weight at 8 lbs!!! Oh no, the little stinker gained another pound in one week and he says she could still be in there for up to three more weeks!! This is not a good situation! I didn't gain a pound, but Carli did - and quite happily moved around a bit for the doctor. I think she was taunting me.

Due date is still a week and a half away - not dialated at all - big baby in tummy, this is not looking to be a good situation for Resa...


Keith says Resa grabs on to the worst case scenario and runs with it...

Resa says if Keith is not the the one having to carry around an 8 lb baby with 3 more weeks to go and expected to remain calm, cool and rational. Nope, Resa is pretty sure her reactions are normal, to be expected and totally justified.

Resa would also like for ppl to start praying that Carli does not gain another pound in a week!

Thus is our update on our weekly doctor's visit...

It is so hard when the end is near, but you can't quite see it yet! Soon Carli will be here, and all this fretting will be behind you. Holding that precious baby makes lots of other things pale in comparison. Hang in there!

From what I hear...you're going to miss the baby being in your tummy so enjoy it...and a reason to eat more ;) Can't wait to see her!

Good luck! She'll come out when she is ready, I'm sure....that may be way after when you are ready, but you'll be glad either way just to have her out! I'll be checking for updates!

Wow, Resa! Despite it feeling like an eternity...you really are soooo close! I can't wait to make a trip out there to see your beautiful little girl.
