6lbs 5oz

We have a big boy on our hands.

My ultrasound yesterday estimated his weight to be the above figure. Now, I know these estimates can go 1/2-1 pound in either direction, but wow. He's a big boy already!! We both expected him to be a big baby. I was 10lbs 11oz, Curtis was 8lbs 10oz. We have big babies all over the place in both of our families.

He is head down, and still using my bladder as a pillow. He is not engaged in my pelvis yet, but that likely won't happen for a couple more weeks.

Tomorrow means that I am 35 weeks, and I have 35 more days until we get to meet this little bruiser. And the excitement in our house is overwhelming!! We are both more excited than we have ever been. You can see it on our faces, and when we giggle and laugh about him like we are two teenagers that just fell in love. Except, we are in love with our little boy!!

Right now, the plan is to not let me go past my due date. So, here I am. 36 days and counting until I finally get to see those puffy cheeks in person. The anticipation is almost too much to bear!!

Would you believe he is almost 2 lbs heavier than Addie when she was born! ha! Good thing you are such a strong lady!

wow! your pregnancy has seemed to go so quickly... I can't believe it's only 36 more days. i loved your description of two teenagers giggling and falling in love. I can't wait to experience that some day!

You look great! Love the thought of you two falling in love all over again over this little boy!

Jill said...

Yay! My guess is about 9 lbs. That's a healthy weight for an Amazon prince baby. :) You look lovely and healthy! Can't wait to see Baby K.

Carter was 7lbs 1oz at my 35 week growth ultrasound. The original plan was to induce around my EDD, but my high BP had different plans I guess. Anyway, Carter was born at 38 weeks and he was already 9lbs 5oz. Those growth u/s are pretty acurate, lol. I can't imagine what he would have weighed if I was induced on my EDD!! Good luck with your "little" peanut :)
