The new date
The baby's birthday has been determined! Today we had another doctor's appointment and we scheduled my C-Section. It felt kind of weird to schedule the baby's birthday because I've always felt like babies are just born when they are born. Our doctor wanted to deliver the baby the week before my due date but the C-section date only ended up being four days before my original due date because of our doctor's schedule. So the big day will be on July 30th unless I happen to go into labor before then. After our ultrasound today, our doctor told us that our son's weight and some of his measurements are two weeks ahead of my weeks in pregnancy. I got excited thinking that maybe the baby would be early but then when our doctor said that he would still deliver the baby at 39 weeks, I was a little disappointed. Today's ultrasound looked great and our baby seems healthy so far. So really, I only need to wait it out about 8 more weeks!
