Every day is one day closer...

I had another ultrasound last Thursday. The tech isn't the nicest of tech's (She won't let you look at the monitor with her, she has to look at everything and then she moves it just a few times to show you a few things, but then she moves it back so you can't see it from the table), but I sweet talked to her and got her to give me the weight estimate.
She is estimating that the baby is 4 1/2 lbs + or - a lb. So that means our baby girl is between 3 1/2 to 5 1/2 lbs.
What I keep thinking is how the estimate of baby weight on ultrasounds seems to be the most inaccurate part of ultrasounds. Am I right? It seems like the ultrasound will show the baby is 10 pounds and then upon delivery the baby is 7 pounds. Or something like that. So I'm just excited that she's still growing and things seems to look good (since I haven't heard anything I'm assuming all is normal). My next appointment is Monday 15th, and I'm ready.
When do I have to start getting undressed again? It's the weirdest thing, since 9 weeks (the first appoinment with the OB) I haven't had to get naked. But I know it's coming.
For all of you out there, when should I start to expect more 'personal' checkups?

I am tinkering with the idea of maternity leave. If I get laid off this year, I may start earlier maternity leave as my sick days could get lost in space if I don't use them. We'll see.

Here's to May 2nd! Due date coming soon! Praise Jesus!

I don't know, the cervical check is kind of personal. :P

Glad the ultrasound went well, although how annoying that the tech won't let you look! Makes me think maybe she's nervous about something.
