Ultrasound update and feeling emotional
By stillfuntryin » Posted Oct. 20, 2014 5:26pm - 628 views - 5 comments

My little man has measured big for months now, at the start it was great! A bub measuring ahead ment he was doing well, but as I get closer to the end o ststart thinking about labour and what it will be like pushing an oversized baby out, I'm 36 weeks and went to a proper scan place yesterday as my Ob only has a small machine, the final consensus is bubs head is the size of a 38 week bub and he weighs 3.2kg ( a little over 7 pounds) he looks so cute all squished up in there.
And today I woke up just feeling low, I haven't seen DH for 10 days and won't get to see him until I go into labour so that could still be anothe 4 weeks away, the dog had pulled her brand new bed apart and dug a heap of holes on my lawn, I get that she is used to having all the room in the world to run being from a cattle property and this small house yard in town will be driving her nits, I walk her every day, she has plenty of bones and I play nap every night, I try to stimulate her as much as I can but it seems its not enough, so I had a break down, I cried for a good half hour, I rang my mum and then o got a hold of DH, I suppose its just that time on my pregnancy, I'm away from home all alone, no friends or family around me, just waiting to give birth to my gorgeous littlean, I can't post pics on this site on my phone bit o hope to have my computer running sometime this week and will post some pics.

Well, you know the growing slows down at the end, so surely little man won't be getting too much bigger. Then there's the possibility that he comes early because he's ready to be here! Hang in there! Not much longer and the moment you've been waiting so long for will be here!

I hope this adds some comfort. When I was pregnant with my son I ended up going to 41 weeks 3 days. My first trimester ultrasound with him showed he was actually a week farther, but my doctor wouldn't use that date. If you ask me I was actually 42 weeks 2 days. Anyway, when I went to the hospital the doctor told me my son's head was very big and that I have a very small pelvis so I would more than likely need a cesarean. It took a lot of pushing, I won't lie, but I was able to have him without a cesarean and I only needed an episiotomy. I don't have another birth to compare it to yet, but I just wanted to tell you that it really isn't that terrible. Oh and when I was 40 weeks I was an emotional wreck. I spilled cereal and milk in the floor and sat down next to it and cried for a good 5 minutes. The last few weeks are not very fun.

I'm thinking you will have him a bit early as well! :)

I don't blame you for having a breakdown. I have to be away from my DH for 4 nights this week and I'm super bummed. Plus I don't have a frustrated dog and everything else you have going on. Hopefully you'll have him a little early?? Hopefully he will reach "fully cooked" status early and get you back to your comforts ASAP. You can do it. Just a few more weeks!!!

I feel your pain. My emotions are crazy lately. I don't think my moods have been bad the entire pregnancy really but the third trimester is just awful to be completely honest. I wish my doctor's office would do a scan before the baby's born to do a weight estimate but they won't for some reason and I'm terrified that I'll have a huge baby and won't be able to push her out. They tell me based on just feeling my belly that they don't think she's very big but based on the fact that her head is in my pelvis and her legs are up under my ribs 24/7 I'd say she's not tiny lol!
