I Lost a Week!!!

Soooo...don't know if I've explained the Due Date confusion I had early on...but when I first found out I was pregnant, I went to an online Due Date calculator, and came up with an EDD of 02/10/10.

When I went to my first doctor's appointment, they wrote 02/01/10 in my chart...a full 9 days earlier than what I had come up with. After my first ultrasound - they said, "Well, you're measuring kind of small, so we're going to bump you back to 02/08/10"...which was closer to what I was originally thinking.

Then I come in today, and the nurse says, "OK, the doctor is going to do your Group B Strep test...that's the test we do at 36 weeks."...and then she walks out of the room. And I'm sitting there confused going, "I'm not 36 weeks, I'm 35 weeks."

My doctor comes in, looks at my chart and says "OK...36 and 2, how are you feeling?" I say, "Fine" And she does the Group B strep thing, and measures my tummy, and says "Yep, you're measuring right on". She did the internal exam to check dilation and stuff...and said I was 1cm and 40-50% effaced. And then said, "OK, see you next week!"

So, I'm sitting there just mulling over everything...and I thought to myself "I just lost a week...here I was thinking I had just about 5 weeks to go, and now I only have about 4 weeks to go???!!!"

Crap, I have to get the rest of my nesting going ASAP.

But isn't it nicer than knowing you have another week to go? Oh, wait, this isn't your first baby, so no, it's not! They're easier IN you than OUT of you!

p.s. Also wanted to say I'm rooting for you to reach WAHM status.

That exact same thing happened to me!!! It is quite a shock because a week is a lot of time when you are that close to the end!!!

I was going to invite you to join a Christian fiction blog carnival I am hosting but I just realized that you will be taking care of baby #5 when it kicks off. Writing a little fiction is probably the last thing on your mind! Haha!!!
