A "Super-Sized" 27 Weeks

Back to the doctor yesterday for another "OB check," as they like to call them.  Here's the nitty gritty...

Glucose test came back normal.  YEA!  No diabetes!

I have yet to plateau and am still measuring six weeks big.  Lucky me.  

I did ask about the potential of an early delivery.  My doctor said that certainly, given my large size and the baby's large size, and the fact that Drew weighed 9 pounds at birth, I could go into labor early.  There could also be the possibility of inducing early.  He is going to leave that decision until after I have my next ultrasound with Dr. Egley, the perinatologist, at the beginning of January when they measure the baby again.  

All in all, everything is as normal as it can be (minus the plus-sized baby and super-sized uterus!).  As my doctor said yesterday, "you feed these babies well."  Umm, yeah, you bet.

  1. So happy for the good news! You look awesome by the way! If it makes you feel any better I was measuring right on this whole time and in the last week I went from measuring right on to measuring 3 weeks ahead! SO I am measuring 39 weeks at 36. HOpe you plateau soon or at least can look at an early induction.
