We're getting closer to the next ultrasound and finding out the baby's gender, and I can't keep my chill at all. It feels like going on a date with our baby, since ultrasound is the only way we can meet for now. If I could I would literally build a baby clinic room in our apartment and hire someone to come and do ultrasounds every single day. This is my level of crazy pregnant lady. I know.
We're getting a lot of questions about our due date and the thing is that we don't have an exact due date yet. In the beginning of pregnancy the baby grew a bit slowly, I was still underweight and it might have something to do with that. So we had a completely different due date back then. But then at our week 14 ultrasound the doctors said our baby had grown super quickly, and at this point I had already gained a lot of weight since I did everything to keep me and the baby healthy & happy, so they moved the due date a whole week earlier. It was one of the greatest moments to hear our baby had done a growth spurt since that meant he/she was happy and healthy.
What happened then was that I started going to the maternity clinic in Helsinki instead of Stockholm and they have a bit different systems, so right now we still don't know our exact due date and we don't know where the baby is going to be born either! You might already know that I'm getting a C-section, so our date for that will be a bit earlier from our original due date. And while they in Stockholm do the C-section two weeks before the original due date, it's only a week before here. So it depends a bit on where we're having the baby as well. I'm honestly so indecisive when it comes to this and I can't make up my mind about where I want to give birth.
But next Thursday we'll get a "final due date" when we know how the baby's grown now and after that it's really time for me to choose the location for the C-section. So soon things will be a bit more clear (I hope). <3
