Now two weeks..

So this is an update for those who read my post last week, I was 36 weeks 4 days measuring 35 1/2 weeks..well today, (37 weeks 4 days) when the midwife measured me; I was 35 1/2. I'm not sure how to take that because I feel like if I am concerned, I just get ignored. But that's an update.

  • Don't worry so much, there's no sure way to predict how big your baby is.

  • I just think its weird that his measurement hasn't changed at all but they don't seem to care.

  • i would call and see anyhows it never hurts..i think its important for midwifes and docs in general to make us feel as comfortable and reassured as possible during pregnancy

  • Sometimes babies can change position and it affects how you measure. I wouldn't really worry about it as long as everything else is okay.

  • I was 8 months pregnant with my son when I switched doctors. You are NEVER too far along to switch, unless you've already had the baby. Your doctor/midwife is providing YOU a service, you have every right to cancel that service and/or "fire" them whenever you want.
