My midwife guessed 6 pounds at 34 weeks, and after that hasn't wanted to guess or tell me what she thinks. She's been pretty strict about my diet because I'm at risk for GD but never developed it, and I get the feeling that she thinks I'm going to have a huge baby and doesn't want to scare me by saying I have to push out a 10 pounder. She did say that she didn't think it would be good for me to go much past my due date.
After Mischevium's terrible news I've been feeling pretty down, and last night I had a breakdown pretty much freaking out about any number of things that can go wrong between now and the birth, and beyond. And just as I got here this morning I saw a thread with "stillbirth" in the title, which I can't bear to read. I hate that these things are happening. This forum has been a great source of information and comfort in the past few weeks, but that kind of news has such a powerful effect on me that I don't know if I should allow myself to be exposed to it. I do want to read all of the birth announcements and stories that I know are coming, but I may have to lay off for a while until my baby comes. I don't know. I hope you all are doing well.
