38 week ultrasound

i had what i think is my last baby ultrasound ever today! my first was born very small due to an issue with the insertion of the umbilical cord into the placenta at 38 weeks. just to be sure my OB wanted me to have another ultrasound to check the growth of the baby (thomas basically stopped growing 2 weeks before he came out). this baby at 38 weeks is estimated at 6lb 10oz which doesn't sound big but to me it's HUGE! thomas was 5lb12oz so i'm thrilled this guy's a bit bigger.

i freaked a little when i saw that the leg bones were only measuring 35 weeks or so but the doc said that's nothing to worry about. i'm 5'4" and DH is 5'11" so it's not like we're going to have huge kids.

we got some 3D pics that i'll try to upload later. so nice to see his chubby little face. i want him to bake until his due date - we'll see!
