I had my 36 week appointment yesterday (a few days early). We had a sonogram and everything looks great - she is heads down, spine out, has a big head and is already estimated to be 6lbs 4 oz (Wyatt was 6 lbs 11oz at birth).
Dr. S checked me, said I was right where I should be for 36 weeks and said he is not really allowed to put me on the calendar for an induction until I am closer to 38 weeks. He was thinking maybe we could go ahead and let her cook until October 19th (a day before my original due date). I told him he was CRAZY - what happened to saying we could have her a week early! I told him I was getting her out the week before that with or without his assistance. I mean she is already just a 1/2 lb away from what Wyatt was at birth and has a big head according to the sonogram. We'll see though.
I also got blood work done again...have been having to do labs every appointment for a while now. My platelets have been a little lower than average and they wanted to watch them. Nothing serious at all. If I remember correctly, average range is 140-190 and I have been consistently around the mid 130s. If it fell below 90 then we would have a problem b/c I couldn't get an epidural.
OH, and the other fun finding of why I think another 4 weeks of being pregnant doesn't sound so fun....I gained another 5.5lbs in 2 weeks - yep. Up a total of 29 lbs now. Yowzers, no wonder it feels like I have to roll myself out of bed to go the bathroom!
