That’s what Baby Boy is estimated to weigh by his due date: NINE POUNDS!
The funny part? I’m considered low risk for any complications – as my doctor told me last night, “Hey, nine pounds is nothing for you!”
Honestly, I’m glad they’re not considering any early intervention – I really didn’t want to have a C-section. But still – I know what a nine pound baby is like (my first was 9lbs, 3oz and my second was 9lbs, 13oz) – it’s not “easy” giving birth to a nine-pounder!
And I’m still hoping against hope that this kid decides he can’t wait to meet us and comes a bit early…part of me was sort of looking forward to them saying, “Whoa, we gotta get that kid out of there NOW!” They definitely won’t let me go past my due date, but I could go all the way to the 25th…so we’ll see!
I lost a pound this week, so I’m hovering around 40 total pounds gained. I don’t have much swelling, which is nice, and baby is head down and in position, so it’s all just a matter of time.
In other news, today we’re celebrating my “baby”‘s birthday! My little girl is 3 today.
She was three months old here!
This was at her kiddie party this weekend – so big!!!
Man – where has time gone? I was watching her play with her toys the other day and I got all choked up because she is just such a little kid now. I guess that’s why we women get crazy and have multiple kids, eh? Still – I’ll be looking into LONG TERM birth control after this one, ha! I’m celebrating my 38th birthday this weekend, and I’m DONE with the pregnant stuff!
