So I am 36+2 today. Yesterday I had my 36 week check up and am only measuring 31.5. I wasn't feeling worried about it but as it gets later into the evening I am working myself up over this. This pregnancy has been really, really rough. Both my grandfather and father died suddenly during this pregnancy. My husband also lost his job. (luckily he has found a new one but it put us back financially a lot). I have been sick throughout. It's been hard to tell if the fatigue and blah feelings are from grief or pregnancy (probably both). I had a growth scan at 29 weeks because I was measuring 27 weeks and I was feeling so poorly. Everything from that scan looked great. But here I am 7 weeks later with very little growth and very little total weight gain. When people ask when I am due and I say January they always are in shock because my bump is so tiny. Anyone else measuring behind like this?
With my first pregnancy, I did measure a week or two behind this whole time, but never this far. DS came at 37+1 (completely naturally and super fast). I never had a growth scan with him (just the 20 week anatomy scan). He was 6lbs and 7oz at birth.
I'm not sure why I'm saying this. I just feel like I'm ready for this year to be over and this baby to be here and healthy. Here's to hoping that tomorrow's scan has good results.
