Quoting Patti.:" I know how to read just fine. This is the first time Ive seen you mention anything about your baby not ... [snip!] ... (or whenever) that he was thinking around Christmas. You got so excited because you wanted to be able to claim him on taxes."
It's easy to get excited about having my son a few days early, when you aren't aware that they are having growth issues. If I thought that keeping him in until after my due date would make a difference, tax money wouldn't even be in the idea. I'm excited to meet him and have him, finally, regardless of taxes or not. And honestly, who wouldn't want to have their baby 3 or 4 days early so you can claim them, if the baby is healthy and fine? That just means you get to have your baby and get a little extra back for taxes to take care of some things that need to be taken care of. Though, I'm assuming you're insinuating that I shouldn't be upset because I was willing to put his health in "jeopardy" for money, anyway?
And my uterus measured 31 weeks, when I was 33. And then 32 weeks, when I was 35. So, my doctor ordered a growth ultrasound that I had today. He was behind a little at my 20 week ultrasound, but they weren't concerned since it was early on. In the ultrasound today, his head and legs only measured 31 weeks, even though I am 36 weeks and a few days. My doctor is monitoring his growth for the next week (plus, some sort of oxygen monitor?) and will decide Friday what day he wants to induce(if he were to somehow turn) or schedule a c-section. I'm assuming he feels that the baby isn't getting enough through the umbilical cord, but I can't be for sure about anything until Tuesday and Friday when I see him again.
