We had an ultrasound this week to measure for size. My doctor was thinking I was measuring small so he had his nurse call the hospital to schedule an ultrasound since he doesn't do them at his office. We got there and the ultrasound tech was so nice. She was the same lady who told us the gender and made sure to point out everything. Our little guy was moving around and I kinda thought that he looked pretty big, but I haven't had an ultrasound since week 18. Anywho, at the end she said that he was measuring 3 weeks and 4 days ahead of schedule and that he was weighing about 5 pounds 11 ounces already. She did explain that the ultrasound can be off by up to a pound either way. Let's hope he's not measuring 6 pounds 11, or I may be delivering that 20 pound Indonesian babys twin. lol. I had researched online what the average size of a fetus should be this far along and found out that it's usually about 3.7 pounds. Eeeeek! It is always such a relief to see him moving around in there. And even though I am scared that I may be delivering a big boy, I am glad that he is bigger rather than small :) She also told us that he's still a boy. Phew...I have had a couple of nightmares that they might have messed up on that one.
It was hard for her to get a good picture of his face because he likes to keep both hands up by his chubby little cheeks all the time. haha. This is the best she got. It's my favorite one. He's so cute!!!!
I have to include this one of his foot. It looks like our little man might have his dad's feet. Tyler wears a size 13 and his toes look like my fingers. hahaha.
I don't know when I will be having him. There has been talk of inducing early because of size and I also found out my doctor is headed to Peru in mid March so who knows. We are just excited to meet him!!!!
P.S. If one more person says "Happy Valentimes," I am going to freak out! It's Valentines people! I have heard not only little kids say it, but also grown adults. I am a bit of a grammar snob, but seriously??? VALENTIMES??!?!?!?!?!? But..really Happy Valentines Day!!!
