Not REALLY The News I Wanted To Hear

Today I finally had my appointment (since they screwed it up last week). They went ahead and just did my glucose test while I was there. I told my doctor that I still continue to have Braxton Hicks all the time and they are 50/50 painful/not painful. She checked me (and it hurt! What's up with that?!) and said "oh! His head is right there!" Ummm yeah... I know... She said I was closed up but still a little short. She said she was probably going to do an ultrasound at my next appointment. She measured me and said we are two weeks behind, that I'm only measuring 26 weeks. I am 28 today. I don't really know what to think about that. She mentioned the US again, so I don't know if she's going to check him out or not. She said I was long waisted so that was probably why..?

I've only gained 5 pounds this whole pregnancy, and yes while I joke about how nice it is, now it's annoying me because is my baby too small? What's going on? I eat all the time. It's not like I'm starving us. I'm not really worried, just kinda like "what...?" It's frustrating. I'm just having a very hormonal pregnancy week and have tons to complain about, but I won't!

I'm up to appointments every 2 weeks now, which I like a lot!

Hope everyone remembered today is Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness/Remembrance Day! I wrote a little post about it on Bumble B. I also bought a domain for it, so no blogspot anymore! You can still use the same URL I believe, but the new one is now! Pretty nifty huh?

2 people that love me told me so:

Oh, i just read this post today! How are you doing? Many women on my pregnancy boards had questions about measuring small and it seems that the general response is that its very common to measure small and its usally because baby is laying sideways to make your uterus measure small. Other moms say they were measuring small they whole pregnancy only to have an u/s that shows that their baby is either right on track size wise or even bigger. In fact some doctors say that the fundal height is not very accurate. Ask your doc to give you an u/s to determine if your baby is measuring right. I'm sure if your doc isn't concerned, you dont have to be too.
