33 Weeks

33 Weeks

Had a growth scan yesterday and the baby is 5 pounds and 3 oz.

I know that's just an estimate, but, eeek! That's the 78th percentile. Axel was just 6 lbs. 8 oz. when he was born, and I've heard babies are supposed to gain about a half a pound a week from now until delivery. So that's another 3.5 lbs?!?!

Good to know that the single umbilical artery isn't causing any issues so far, but it still makes for a crazy number of scans and doctor's appointments from here on out.

His weight estimate at this stage kind of adds to my conviction that I have a bit less than 7 weeks left...I think I am at least a week ahead of my official due date and have thought so since the beginning. This baby also kicks a lot harder than Axel did (could the new guy be even more active than our jumping bean?)

Anyway, here I am at 33 weeks with Axel.
