Pregnant after 35

Wahoo and Huzzah! (What a relief!)

Soooo.... despite my scale saying that I've gained not one ounce in the past 4 weeks (in fact, I've lost 1.2 pounds, if my scale is accurate), my P?pite is measuring on the larger side of 26 weeks. 2 pounds 5 oz to be exact, according to the tech.

I have an appointment with the OB tomorrow, which will hopefully confirm that the tech's measurements were accurate, but what a huge relief! I was a little anxious.

Now I can go back to enjoying this whole experience...

  • Yay! So glad to hear the LO is baking just fine.

    I see my MW this afternoon and have my first NST--should be interesting...

  • Yay!  Dont' worry about your weight too much.  My weight fluctuated 1-2 pounds over the last 8-10 weeks. I stayed the same, and Max grew like mad.  Good news is, I think I can wear my pre-baby jeans today just 6 days post baby but the thought of zippers by my incision scare me right now.

  • Exactly what Gundy said!  From week 12- 36, I've only gained 4 pounds, however, baby is measuring fine.  I did the same thing last pregnancy, and was wearing my prepregancy clothes as soon as I got home from the hospital... but I also agree with Gundy in that the regular jeans hurt my incision to much at first. :) 

    You're getting so far along now momma!  I love to see it!!!

  • Wow, you all are keeping your weights low!  I eat healthy for the most part, but have gained just under 40 lbs this pregnancy.  There is no way I'll be wearing my pre-preg jeans the week after birth.  Maybe 2 or 3 months after, if I really push myself, but no way any sooner than that.
