The doctor did tell me (not to freak out...it is totally common) that the babies placenta is a little too close to the cervix. However, this should move further up as the uterus continues to grow. This only means two things right now: 1) call if there is ANY bleeding (which I would do anyways) and 2) that I get an "extra" ultrasound next visit (yay...more time to see the baby). Other than that, it was a fairly routine visit. I will post pictures of the baby soon, but the baby was still being difficult and wouldn't give us a cute little profile shot. We think it was completely turned away from us. We do have a few things on our "homework" list from the doctor...pre-register at the hospital, find a pediatrician, make sure we get a car seat installed properly...and we added on to read up about the "Bradley" method of labor for our own benefit. So much to do before we meet this giant baby!
The reason we are referring to it as a giant baby is because the ultrasound shows the baby measuring closer to a Halloween birth rather than November 5/6/7. We are not too worried about it either way...we just need to remember to stay away from newborn sized clothing!
