Had ultrasound yesterday and midwife appointment today... sooo happy my baby aint as little as they originally thought..... it 5lb 9oz +/-13oz... so smallest it would be now is 4lb 12 oz, which is great considering my last baby (my 6th) was 4lb 14oz born at 37.5 weeks as she was iugr...... Midwife said that so far gonna let me go naturally instead of having to be induced like i was with my last :)

So happy for you!!

I'm also excited. My first is now a 4yr old boy. And now, we're expecting another boy! I'm due DEC 07 2010.

Hope everyone of us will have a safe delivery!

wow...never knew that one! I'm glad your babies are ok though! That must be such a huge relief! :D 5 lbs is a good startoff weight, and yay for letting you go into labor naturally!
My cousin always goes into labor early also and actually just gave birth to her 3rd baby at 36 weeks last night! Her baby girl is perfectly healthy also, just come early for some reason! :)
Looks like you'll be one of the firsts on here to have her baby! :)

iugr is In Uterus Growth Restriction.... The uterus doesnt grow with the pregnancy... and the cord blood flow isnt normal, so restricts the growth of baby dramatically.... Iugr babies are born with no subcon#$%# Fat on their bodies (dont know how to spell it) and are brought on early, Mine was 2 weeks 2 days.... They dont gain the wait as normal premmie babies, My nearly 18 month old is the length of a 9 month old, sometimes skinnier then them too, but does everything normally for her age....
