Possible New Due Date!!

I went to see my OB on Monday for a new ultrasound, because at my last visit I was measuring over 2 1/2 weeks bigger. The ultrasound went well, our little boy is already over 4 lbs and measuring bigger. The ultrasound was giving measurements that are 3 weeks earlier than my original due date, so now we may be having a Christmas baby. The new date is December 23, 2008. I was very excited, especially now with all the lower back pain, 3 weeks earlier would be a blessing so long as the baby is healthy and ready to come out. I do not have gestational diabetes, pre-clampsia, or toxemia (thank heavens) which can cause the baby or myself to be measuring larger, so I am hoping this baby will be born this year!! I will post the recent ultrasound pics once I scan them into the computer.

On Wednesday the two offices I work for had a combined baby shower for me (and Dave). I work upstairs with Dr. Blasco's office mon-thurs doing hygiene, and one Friday a month downstairs at Dr. Truman's doing ortho assist, Dave also works for Dr. Truman. They did an amazing job. The food was delicious, the company was great, and we can not thank them enough for the wonderful gifts they gave us. We were so excited looking at the gifts at home, I already put together my travel system and started washing the cute clothes. Thank you all for your kindness and love!!

I was measuring 2.5 weeks big too and I still went a week late. But he was big and healthy. But with the pain you're having I can understand why you're done! I would be too! Good luck!
