According to the 40-week pregnancy calendar, I am officially 9 months pregnant. I had a doctor's appointment this morning, and from her medically official "squeeze-the-belly-in-a-couple-different-spots" judgment, she does not think that my baby is 8 pounds yet. She guessed that the baby would be 7-7 1/2 pounds.
So who should I believe? The ultrasound machine - which I had previously heard wasn't great at predicting weight? or my doctor, who uses her hands to weigh a baby?
I guess only time will tell how big she really is. It's not like it's a big deal anyway. I'm just anxious to meet my baby. She's due on Tuesday, but I think she'll be later than that. Jake's guess is that she'll come next weekend sometime (the 29th-1st), and his official guess is October 2nd.
Who knows? Maybe she'll come tomorrow.
