Re: Can I join you here in August?
My perinatologist told me the guess, so I think it is accurate. He is head of perinatology in at least 2 hospitals and often has VERY long waits to get to see him. He told me at 30w 6d that my son born at 38 weeks (planned c-section) would be 8 lbs at birth. He was 8 lbs 1 oz. It was then I realized how smart he is!

How did you whip your lotion? That sounds like a good idea.
My OB has a long letter that he (peri) wrote her. I talked to my OB because I accidentally scared her (happens more often then I like to admit to people) and she told me that I should have a copy of it. I can't wait to see it. I see her for the first time on the 12... I thought my peri was going to deliver me so I didn't schedule with her till late.
Sorry, I had my triplets via classical c-section (vertical cut). My son was born the same way because they thought he was transverse. Because of that I am not allowed to go into labor. So this is typical for me to not go past 38 weeks really.
