Such A Big Boy!
When I went for my doctor visit this past Monday my obstetrician said that I was measuring on the large size so she recommended that I have an ultrasound to determine the size of our baby. I had an appointment yesterday afternoon and our baby boy looks very healthy and in the words of the ultrasound technician he is "a mover!" I was thrilled that the technician took these 4D pictures of our baby's face (his hand is on the side of his face & on his forehead in these pictures). I think our boy looks a lot like Grace in these ultrasound pictures. The surprising news is what a big boy he is already. A baby at thirty weeks of age is typically approaching 2 1/2 to 3 pounds. Our baby boy measured in at 4 pounds, 10 ounces!!! He is at the 99th percentile for all measurements. It looks like we could possibly have a ten pound (or more!!!) baby boy in December. We can't wait to meet him. The date for his arrival has been set for December 15. We are counting down the days until we meet our beautiful baby boy.
