Baby Update

I had another growth ultrasound at Maternal Fetal Medicine this morning. The baby is now estimated to weigh 5 1/2 pounds, which freaks me out. I mean, some babies are born weighing that much normally! So, he's on the high side of normal, which means a few things. First, I have to meet with the doctors on March 10 to discuss amnio. They have scheduled me for another ultrasound and an amnio on the afternoon of March 19. If the amnio shows that the lungs are mature, I will be having the baby on March 20. When the tech told me this, I sort've hit panic mode. We are still getting the stuff together that we need! I don't stop working until March 27! As of last week, my position at work hadn't even been advertised! hopes of having an April baby are slim to none right now. Chances are, he'll be here in about 4 1/2 weeks. I emailed my principal hoping that he would get his butt in gear and find a sub finally. And...I think I'll be spending my day off getting the baby's closet totally cleaned out and getting some of his clothes washed.
