36 week ultrasound and checkup

Tuesday, January 11, 2011

My bruiser is weighing in at 7lbs and 11 oz. Doctor says he is healthy and strong and not to be worried. She said the weight is an estimate -- best guess if you will of the ultrasound tech. Baby is still down and ready to meet his Mommy and Daddy!!

My blood pressure was good and I had gained 2 pounds. Makes my total gain = 15lbs. Doctor was happy with that and so was I! We are going every week now. Doctor checked me and I am not dilated at all and she said I shouldn't be as of yet.

My parents went with us and really enjoyed themselves. It was the first time my dad had ever seen an ultrasound and he was amazed! My mom had gone to our 19 week ultrasound and could see all kinds of things. But with this being so late in the game, Baby is running out of room to move so it was harder for the tech to get any good views. but I think my dad still had a good time. He said, "There is Papa's boy!" LOL.

My husband just smiled!!

    That is just awesome!! Just awesome! Big hugs! Caleb saw is brother during an ultrasound, and when he saw him, he said Mommy is having an alligator! And thus, Atticus Alligator he became!

    How exciting! I think my dad would faint if he saw an ultrasound... LOL He is such a teddy bear that emotional things really get to him.

    You have been amazing with only gaining 15 pounds with Baby King. He will be happy that his mama is healthy and he will be too.

    Keep us posted! I am so excited for you!!!!
