Rileigh Update

Rebecca (our birthmom, name changed) had an appt today. Apparently Rileigh is approx 5lbs 8oz and about 19 & 1/2 inches long. According to her doctor Rileigh could come either by the end of December or 1st week in January. Her original due date is suppose to be Jan 27th!

From what I have heard babies grow approx 1lb per week in the last 4 wks. So if that is the case Rileigh could be close to 8lbs by the end of December.

I'm freaking out a little bit. It is different when you're not the one carrying the baby. We are ready but I start a new teaching job on Jan 3rd!

I'm excited and nervous and freaking out all at the same time!

It's actually just a half pound a week. So 6-8 oz a week in the last 4-6 weeks. Smile

That's exciting. Why do they think so will come so soon?

They think because she is only 34 1/2 wks and already 5.5lbs she will be huge if she goes another 5 1/2 wks. She starts going on the 30th for monitoring at the hospital for 3hrs. Then her next appt with the doc is Jan 3rd. Friday the whole family is getting together so I thought it would be fun to have a baby pool and see who gets the due date. Smile

Ah I see. My son was always a big boy and they took him at 38 weeks. The pool sounds fun! Smile
