This morning I had a doctor's appointment. Everything is going well. From this point on I will be seeing the doctor on a weekly basis. I gained 5 pounds, so now I'm up to a total of 22 pounds. I asked the doctor if she could estimate the baby's size and she thinks our daughter might be around 6 pounds right now. I was a bit surprised. The doctor also said that our daughter could be 7 to 8 pounds by the time my due date arrives. Wow! That's bigger than I was and bigger than Nate was.
I also asked the doctor if she thought our daughter would arrive early or if she could tell. As of right now, the doctor did not think there was much of a chance of her coming early (yeah!). She is head down, but is sitting up fairly high. Once she drops, then I'll know that I'm closer to going into labor.
The doctor also told me to expect the baby to decrease her movement because space will become much tighter for her. Once again, as the doctor was listening to the heart beat our daughter started to squirm all over the place. The doctor commented again on how squirmy she was. I'm glad that the doctor gave me a heads up on the movements decreasing because I've become so use to our daughter moving a lot that I probably would have become really worried if she slowed down much.
Well, I have one last baby shower this Sunday. It should be a lot of fun. I'll let you all know how it goes!
