Sonogram-38 vs 39 weeks?

Andrea had her second medical sonogram last Thursday (at 37 1/2 weeks). Her doctor wanted to check Paige's weight, the placenta, and amniotic fluid since she's considering inducing labor. To our surprise, the sonogram estimated Paige to already be 7 lbs and 8 oz and estimated the due date as May 4th. We aren't for sure if the doctor will change Andrea's due date since it's so late in the pregnancy, but Paige is definitely measuring big- 76th percentile. Andrea figured Paige would be little like Connor was (He was 6 lbs 9 oz at birth).

Andrea goes back to the doctor tomorrow and we should know whether the doctor is planning to induce this week or not. If you go by the first due date (May 10th), Andrea will be 38 weeks on Monday and if you go by the second due date (May 4th), she'll be 39 weeks on Tuesday. We're both hoping to have Paige this week. We'll keep everyone posted!

Oooo - we're all waiting for the news. Almost there Andrea. The last week or two is the hardest. Hang in there. We're thinking of you and rooting for you.
