The curious case of the changing due date~

Yeah, so I go to my OB specialist appointment today whereupon I was promptly informed that my April 1st due date was wrong. It is, instead, supposed to be April 11th...and where did I get the idea that it was the 1st?

I had gotten the idea from my regular doc who, I think, was having a ditzy day. I reapeatedly asked if she was sure about the date change at that stage in the pregnancy since ultrasound pics can be misleading (which was what she was going by). Oh, no! She assured me that she was right and, in a ditzily condescending way, let me know that I was mistaken. Yeah, okay lady!

Sooo...now I'm back to an April 11th due date. Even though it feels like things are further along than that. During the anatomy scan today - to check on the thickness of the placenta which was in normal range - the baby was relatively quiet in his breech position. He looked much more filled out than he did a month ago. He's a little over three pounds and I already wanna squeeze him and get all of his sugar!

Well, I'm off to change my baby ticker over there on the left sidebar...again.

Nice job, doc. Hello! That is a pretty big gap. Someone needs to communicate a little better. I'd go with the Obgyn and not your regular doctor. Sounds like the OB is more with it. I'm glad everything looks good. You must be carrying this baby well because mom said she didn't even think you looked pregnant. In other words, you were carrying well and looked good. Not that a pregnant woman doesn't look good....hmmmm... none of that is coming out right. Well, take it for what it is worth. it was supposed be a compliment! :-)

OB and weatherman get paid lots of money to just take a guess.

Gotta love docs! I had one tell me I'll never have children. Imagine my surprise when I had twins. That man will limp when I find him.

Seriously, I'm due to deliver in around three months and they still haven't gotten the due date tacked down! That is not something a pregnant, overly hormonal planning freak should be subjected to....
