Ultrasounds done in the first trimester are usually accurate date wise within a week.
Just to clarify...yes they will. I went in for an appt. w/my back up care today and that's exactly what they did!
:They actually changed me from 43 weeks to 37 based on the size of the femur. Can you believe it? We were all excited about it though, b/c we knew we'd be left alone now. Everyone is relaxing around me. I know my dates are NOT that far off. My baby needed longer, like many others might. What a testament that we should leave pregnancy alone and trust these babies!
Gumby...that's a good idea. I think I will!
Crystal...we were thinking Annabelle or Luke, but now we are also thinking of Tuscany for a girl and Trystan for a boy. I have no idea. The baby will have to tell us! I can't wait to meet him/her.
Ok mamas, for the last hour I have had contractions 5-7 minutes apart instead of my last 5 days of 10 minutes. I'm not getting excited or convinced though...after all this prodromal (sp) labor. I've lost 3 mucous plugs this week! Maybe with everyone calming down and releasing negative energy around me, it will happen. I haven't had a drink in 5 years and I told dh to go to WF and get some organic red wine b/c I need things to stop so I can sleep. Also, the spa isn't clean for me...so with all this, watch, tonight will be the night! Geesh. I'll keep you posted of course. Thanks for the support once again!
StacyL...If I still am by Monday or if I need him this weekend I have his home number...I am always up for another adjustment!
Come on baby...come meet your mommy and daddy!
