new Claire update!

The doctor appointment today went extremely well. The baby is weighing in at 5 lbs and 10 ounces. She got measured today. We have been getting measurements on her every 3 weeks for awhile now. My sugars are still staying relatively well controlled. The doctor said that the fluid level and her weight look great, right where they need to be. It is sort of surprising she is doing so well honestly. Since I am diabetic, that makes the baby bigger sometimes.

We talked about having the baby 2 days earlier. For us, it would just be more convenient to be quite honest. Having her delivered 2 days earlier would make our nerves more calm for sure. I know its only two days but it'd still be better for us. I feel bad because some of my family wanted to make it down for the birth. I want them to be here to see her shortly after she's here. I have to call my ob and see what she thinks about delivering the baby two days earlier than planned.  We wanted to talk to the high risk specialist before we made any serious decisions. He told me he didn't have a problem with me delivering anytime in the 37th week so that was nice to hear. He told me that the sooner a baby is delivered the more chance of respiratory issues (and the diabetes makes things worse) but at the same time, the longer she is inside me the more chance is might pass away its hard.

I'll have to let you know what happens tomorrow after I talk with my doctor.
