Ultrasound Today

Baby Alex is doing just fine. He is measuring large and they are expecting him to be 8-9 lbs. at birth given my previous children's weights and his growth today. He's still measuring a week ahead and weighs 4 lbs. 8 oz. and was 17 inches long. My fluid is at 20, which is good, and he is doing swell! My heart melted watching him yawn, suck his thumb, open and close his eyes, and squish his lips together. Here's the best pic. we got of him as he is a mover, he's squishing his lips here. Smile

No, this is the last thing I had to get checked on before moving to the birth center as they cannot take any high risk pregnancies and when the MW at the Ob's office suggested the u/s b/c they were concerned with size, I had to get it done. My first appointment at the birth center is the 7th, we write my birth plan with my doula on the 29th, and then I go once a week until my baby is born. Smile

my babies definately don't take after me, i was 5 lbs. 4 oz. but DH was 8 lbs. 10 oz. at birth and his mom was 10 lbs.!!! there is nothing wrong with a smaller baby but when you have larger babies and then all of a sudden have a smaller one, there could be something wrong with the placenta functioning, which is what i was concerned about. the MW said your off-spring will tend to way 8 oz. less or 8 oz. more than your previous birth... but this one is growing just fine, he is balled up in there pretty good which is why it looks as though I am literally carrying a basketball underneath my shirt, lol. Smile i just can't believe he weighs over 4 lbs. now and they kept saying, "and he won't put on the majority of his weight until the last 8 weeks, i'm so sorry to tell you." i kinda laughed b/c they kept hinting at a c-section, which i think is funny! u/s aren't 100% accurate and even if he comes here 9+ lbs. i can deliver a baby that size. Smile

So cute! Glad that he growing and measuring large (I am always happy when my babies measure large :)). Both my babies were 8+ lbs and they were relatively easy deliveries, so I think it's funny when OBs try to scare patients into thinking their bodies can't handle a 9 lb baby.
My mom had three 11 lb babies, six 9lb 8 oz + babies, and one 8 lb baby all delivered naturally with no meds. She is not a large-framed person at all, but she had great OBs who knew to trust a woman's body to do what it was designed to do.
Very adorable pic. TFS!
