A bunch of things please read.

cultures came back from my last prenatal visit , due to blood in my urine and it came back normal. I curious to why there was blood in my urine.

Im 34.5 weeks as the doctors are going by, but im measuring two weeks ahead. I just scheduled an ultrasound for two weeks from now to get babys weight, and amniotic fluid measurements.

Im a small girl, started at 110 pounds and now im 140. All baby, but i was told my placenta is in the back of my stomach, so i literally can feel every movement my baby makes, and can feel all his body parts.

Im so curious to wither this baby is huge, and i have low fluids.

or if hes normal size and i have more fluids.

But wouldnt it be less fluids if i can feel everything and seee? Like if i push on my stomach it is always hard.

how do i know if i to much or too little amount of fluid, besides a ultrasound?

  • These are all things YOU don't need to worry yourself with. Let the doctors handle the rest.

  • Is your doctor concerned about the amount of fluid or is this just your paranoia? Gaining 30 lbs is pretty normal, in fact that isn't that much weight to gain.

  • How is your blood pressure? Protein/blood can indicate preeclampsia.

  • I don't know how the dr can tell other than the ultrasound. Baby's weight is hard to know anyway, even with an ultrasound. With my fourth baby, they told me 7 to 7.5 lbs. He weighed 8lb, 9oz. My biggest baby so far! The next baby was 7'2". DS4 didn't really feel any different than DS5. But, usually pushing is a little easier with each subsequent pregnancy.

  • Girl I was just 93 lbs when I got pregnant with the first. She was huge at 7 lb. 11 oz and 22" long. I had a terrible problem with swelling. Of course I had her in October, so the summer was bad! She was a C-section as was the second. With the second, during the ultrasound, the Dr. said there wasn't even fluid left. She took up the whole area. She was just 6 lb. 6 oz. though. So, that stuff really has no bearing on the baby. When the ultrasound showed no fluid, the Dr. scheduled the C-section the next day.

  • My first was 10lbs, but the doctor knew she was going to be big. She was 4 days late, and the doc said it was time to go get her. I had a c setion because the doc was afraid she would get stuck. It wasn't that bad. I was walking that night. My second was 8.1 lbs but he was 2 weeks early, so he might have been 10lbs. Again c section. I was given the choice. I told the doc I didn't want to be in hard labor for hours and hours and then have to go through a c section. One or the other thank you. So she said lets do the c section. I was fine with that. Again, I didn't think it was that bad.
