Another day at the OB

Today was my last 2-week interval appointment; from now on I will see the doctor each week to check progress. I am 35 weeks this weekend, so I feel like the birth is just around the corner. The doctor went ahead and did the Strep B test to be sure they are ready in case I go into labor sometime soon. She says I am not dilated at all, which is good news. Pretty shortly though I’m sure I’ll be hoping she’ll tell me I am…I think I’m running out of room in there! At this point she is not planning on needing to schedule a c-section….if I don’t deliver before 38 weeks we’ll talk about the possibility again.

We had another ultrasound today, and the technician was unable to tell us if the baby is “still a girl” to quote Karl. 😉 She was lying bottom up which would have been great had she not had her heel placed between her legs. Modest already…that’s a good thing. So, we’re still going on their first viewing, which indicated a baby of the female persuasion. It did show us that ‘baby girl’ is 6lb. 4 oz….which can actually be off by a whole pound either way…so somewhere between 5lb. 4oz. and 7 lb. 4.oz. Karl had guessed that she would be 6lb. 1 oz. so he got it pretty close!

By the way, we’re calling the baby ‘baby girl’ because we have yet to decide on a name. Here are a few more possibilities for your perusal:

  • Delaney
  • Morgan
  • Gabrielle(a)

    Delaney is a name that is rare…I don’t know a single one..it is pretty though. I know you are at that tough stage of pregnancy and i am thinking/praying for you as you journey through these last few weeks.

    Thanks so much for your prayers! It is tough in some ways, but I know the end is near and I will meet my baby soon. I’m getting excited about that…

    I will put in my vote for Emma Grace. Theo’s grandmother’s name was Emma. She was straight from Germany with a heavy accent. Grace reminds me of the song, Grace, grace, God’s grace and then it goes on. Have you heard about the method of giving birth in a nice warm tub of water? The position is more natural and the warm water is soothing. Love, Aunt Joanne.

    Emma Grace is my favorite of the ones we’ve been considering…my Grandma’s name was Emma and I just really like the name Grace. It would be cool to have a name that is from both sides of the family.I have heards of laboring in warm water…the labor room at our hospital actually has a jacizzi in the room. So, if the labor isn’t too quick (like the rest) I may try it. That was my intent when we had Hailey, but it was fast and I nver did do it…same with Corbin. We’ll see what happens with this one. Thanks for your comments…I’m so glad you’re able to keep up-to-date on our lives.:)
