SO I just realized that other women whom I thought were due around the same time as me have had their glucose test and are beginning their two week a month appointments. While I have not done the test nor has it been mentioned that I should start the 2 week appts.
I know from the ultra sound that we were TWO freaking weeks off the original due date. As in earlier then we thought on the week so if I am writing this properly Miss Pancake is due two weeks later then we initially thought.
Here's the deal - my Midwife told me at the appointment right before the ultrasound that "I had to have the baby in July because she had a lot of births for August and she was booked." I told her at the point that I felt like I would probably induce if we went past a week late but now I am reneging on that offer. I do not want to induce unless there is something going wrong with the pregnancy.
Part of the reason for my take back on the inducing thing is that despite the fact that the baby measured 18 weeks old rather then 20 weeks old for the ultrasound, Liz, the midwife, never blinked and did not change the due date. Does that make sense to anyone? Especially since we had no clue when we actually conceived? We guessed at the date we thought I stopped having my period and had no idea going in to the 1st prenatal appointment. How responsible of us, huh?
I decided over the weekend that I am going to ask Liz about this at the visit next week. I just think it is crappy to assume that I am due at the end of July because Liz seems to want to have that time frame happen then walk around feeling horrible about being two weeks late when really Pancake is on time if she comes in the middle of August, you know?!
Maybe I am rambling about nothingness here. I will update next week after the appointment. It is not like it changes things THAT much but enough to make me wonder if she is just predicting the July due date so after one week she can say 'oh you want to be induced you are a week late and I have a crap load of babies due in August so you BETTER induce.' Which I do not want. Tea leave people, this due date stuff is like reading tea leaves, I swear!
I think... I think I am over thinking this. Weee... nothing like a hormonal pregnant woman gloaming on to some obscure fact and rehashing it in depth for the Internet to read! Fun times, people, fun times!
