Hello, friends! Like I mentioned in my Instastories on Monday, I waited for this week’s link-up and bumpdate post so that I could include the results of my ultrasound for baby boy #3. Here’s a quick recap of my appointments today! Please share your links for this week if you have time in our widget below!
I’m 37.5 weeks today and got the all clear from the early morning ultrasound and my OB that baby boy #3 is healthy and BIG! I now understand why I’ve been wheezing so much. Oh and don’t get me started about the Olympic event that is me getting out of bed in the morning! I guess that’s normal considering I’ve gained 40 lbs.
According to my OB’s analysis of my ultrasound, baby boy is measuring over 3.5 kg, which Google tells me is in the ballpark of 8 lbs. (makes me feel a little better about my more than average weight gain.) My OB says that my husband and I must make big babies because our older boys were both in the 8 lbs. range (A was 8 lbs. 11 oz at 40w3d and C was 8 lbs. at 38w). He said I just lucked out that I hide big babies well, but I think that’s what accounts for so much of my third trimester discomfort and pain!
Have I mentioned we don’t have a name for baby yet? At this point, we’re just going to wait until we get to see him in person! Hopefully, once we see his face we will know what fits him best! We didn’t get too clear of a picture of his face because he was sleeping and covering up with his hands. But, we did get these two glimpses. He is definitely his middle bro C’s mini-me according to these snapshots!
I am so relieved that everything is okay with the babe. Now, I’m bracing myself for birthing another 8 lbs-er! EEK!
Last weekend was spent outside surround by family! My brother and SIL were visiting us from New York, so we spent much needed QT with them and went down to our huge Farmers’ Market to get our flowers and vegetables for the season, too. The boys loved spending every waking minute with them. They should hopefully be moving closer to us in the next year or so. I can’t wait until they’re just a few hours drive away!
Hope you’re having a great week, loves!
