38w5d appt

Today I went in to for my regular scheduled appt., but when I got there I found out that my MW had canceled all of her appts. I got rescheduled with a MD whom I've seen before when I was having TTC issues. Well, she did an u/s and did some measurements and found out that baby Cee is barely a little over 5 lbs. She wasn't too concern, but she does want me to come back tomorrow for a NST for more measurements. Other than that baby Cee looks good, still head down. 
I know everything will be o.k. I just have to have faith in God that he will continue to look over him. My son was 6 lbs at 41w. so even if baby Cee barely reaches 6 lbs I'll be happy. 

I also had my hospital tour today. It's a brand new hospital which open last month. The birthing rooms are large and so are the postpartum rooms, which is nice. The one thing that I didn't like was that I would need to go to triage before L&D. There they will monitor me for awhile before admitting me. I'm used to going into L&D and I was set to go. 
They also told me since this is my 3rd pregnancy I would need to wait unitl my contractions are 10 mins apart before coming in. Glad to know this otherwise I probably would wait until they're 2-5 mins about before making my trip to the hospital. Sheesh by waiting 2-5 mins I'll probably make head line news...lady gives birth to a baby boy on Sunset Blvd. Imagine that?

Hey Gee- I'll be thinking of you and baby Cee. I'm sure everything is fine! Keep your faith and pray over the baby. Hang in there and KUP! Thinking of you! You're so close!

I hope everything is okay! A week before our son was born, our doctor said he weighed 7 lbs, some ounces - He turned out to be over 9 lbs - those measurements can be way off! :)
