i went to the docs today to get an ultrasound done, i'm 38 weeks 2 days, with gestational diabetes. so i'm more then sure i have an over average baby (big). well the girl that took my ultra sound seemed way to gentle to me. i have had 3 ones before this, all saying DD was between the 25 and 29Th of July. is it possible that if she being to gentle as she was could get a very bad reading....she couldn't find my sons feet, which she did not check the left side of my stomach at all, only the right cause that's where the babys stomach and butt was. she read my baby at 33 weeks! thats 5 weeks diff and only 4 lbs???
i went in because i have been very uncomfortable for the past few weeks and was hoping to get my labor induced on my 39th week. I've been on a very stick diet of all meat! cause everything else makes my blood sugar skyrocket! this is messing my stomach up and causing me to have problems going to the bathroom, and I was told too that i might have to have a c/s this is my first child, i really dont want a c/s and would love to avoid it at all cost.
my concern is, sense she read everything totaly wrong and we still dont know the actualy weight of the baby, i dont think the doc will let me induce labor. and i might end up having to get the c/s anyways, even worse i might have to be on an all meat diet for the next 2-3 weeks, its already been that long if not longer.
