For the past 2 weeks now, and up until due date, I have to go to the doctor 2x a week for a stress test and ultrasound. Anyone else out there having to do the same?
They told me I have to do these because I am considered "obese", which I don't think so, but whatever. lol So they want to make sure the baby is thriving and not under any stress due to my excess fat. ;p So far all tests come back positive and showing that she's one happy lil fetus and doing very well, (which I could have told them...I'm the one that feels her bouncing, kicking, squirming, hiccupping, etc all throughout the day... :D ) But I'm also not complaining because an ultrasound every week?! Awesome!! Unfortunately the past 2 weeks she's been head down and facing my spine so no good pictures... :( But its still nice to see her, getting bigger each week! The past 2 weeks also they've been saying she's measuring 2 weeks bigger so I hope that means she comes earlier and that I go into labor naturally! (Been induced past 2 babies and want to know what its like to just go into labor on own!)

1 more month to go!! (give or take....) Can't wait to see who has their baby first! lol

If you see this, leave this form field blank.

Well, thank you and congrats to you too. :) They want to induce around a week early, but my ob's don't really tell me much about it. they measure and listen to his heartbeat, but don't say anything about anything else. its a bit frustrating.

i have to have this done too! I find it annoying, but it keeps me busy. My son is due december 16th, but they want to induce me, considering they believe he is going to be big.
