Maternity Monday...34 weeks
Hey guys I just had my 34 week doctors appointment, and it looks like I will be getting induced on December 10!! I know there maybe a few of you out there who thinks that getting induced is a bad idea. But here are the few reasons why that is happening. One if Logan is anything like my Aiden he will be a week late, so he will be born on Christmas (Aiden was born a few days before Thanksgiving). Two I went 41 weeks and 3 days with Aiden. We got induced with Aiden and everything went find, it was only a 9 hour labor...
Because Aiden and Ryan both have factor 5 we are 99% sure that Logan will also have factor 5. We want to have him early so people who we might need will not be on vacation (like they where with Aiden). Oh and also because I am having the wore back pain, to the point where I might put myself on bed rest!
How your baby's growing:
Your baby now weighs about 4 3/4 pounds (like your average cantaloupe) and is almost 18 inches long. Her fat layers — which will help regulate her body temperature once she's born — are filling her out, making her rounder. Her skin is also smoother than ever. Her central nervous system is maturing and her lungs are continuing to mature as well. If you've been nervous about preterm labor, you'll be happy to know that babies born between 34 and 37 weeks who have no other health problems generally do fine. They may need a short stay in the neonatal nursery and may have a few short-term health issues, but in the long run, they usually do as well as full-term babies.
