28 weeks and change 

I had another growth scan a few days ago and everything looks good.


At 28w2d, baby girl is an estimated 2lbs 11oz and apparently has lots of hair! Growth has slowed down some (baby went from 65% to 45%) but the MFM said she wasn’t concerned. She said later in the pregnancy, genetics and uterine size/shape starts to play more of a role in the size of the baby? 

We also talked about the plan for the next few weeks. I will go back again in 4 weeks for another growth scan (32w) then will go back at 34 weeks. At 36 weeks, we will probably start the conversation about inducing. Seems that since I’m at a MFM, and given my history and age they don’t want me to go past 40 weeks at all. So we will probably induce between 39-40 weeks. Honestly, I’m ok with that. Especially since they will be doing weekly scans/NSTs towards the end. The goal is to get the baby here healthy and safe.

So baby girl is doing her thing on the inside, M and I have been slacking off. We haven’t done anything to prepare yet. This weekend we need to focus and get her room somewhat ready or at least start the process! 

I also need to order a breast pump soon. I would really like to BF this time and not EP.  Other than that I don’t think we need to order much- besides diapers and wipes. We have a ton of clothes and all the baby gear we need for the most part. It’s just a matter of getting it out and ready!
