(18 Week) 21 Week Check-up....NOT!

NEW DUE DATE: October 14th, 2008

It's true, they changed my due date. I am only 18 weeks, 3 days pregnant. They said the "20-week" ultrasound has a two week margin of error, but since I was almost 3 weeks off, they decided to change it. Oh well, I'd rather have a new due date, then watch September 25th pass me by and wait around for another two weeks, thinking I'm overdue. All that matters is that baby is healthy, and still on the way, no matter when it arrives!

I went back and changed the titles of each post, putting the accurate week in parenthesis. For the next three weeks, you will have to bear with me as I repost some of the same material.

My appointment was good. Gained 3 lbs. BP: 102/54. Baby's heart rate: 160bpm! I'm measuring at 20cm, which she said was great for either 21 weeks, or 18 weeks. So all's well. My midwife said I need to come back in for another ultrasound in about 10 weeks, just to make sure baby's growing well and still lining up with the new due date.

Aw. I'm sorry. But sounds like you're choosing a great attitude about it. You're right--let's be thankful for a healthy baby. :)
