Big Baby!

So yesterday I had a sonogram, because not only Beau and I, but also my doctor, have been a BIT concerned about Ainsley's SIZE! I'm not measuring WAY bigger than normal - but a little bit. And yesterday we found out why! =) The sonographer first measured her head and said, "Yep, it looks like she might be a big baby!" After she had laughingly determined that she is INDEED a big baby, she told me her current weight. Are you ready for this? 7 lbs. 1 oz.! And that's at 35 1/2 weeks! Oh MY!!! And her head is ALREADY 9cm from ear to ear. Although Amy comforted me somewhat by reminding me that her skull will push together when she's coming out. =) And then she said that she'll have a cone head!!! =) Her weight gain will most likely slow down at this point, and the sonographer's guess is that she'll be in the mid to high eights at birth. At least she'll still be in the eights...but oh my...that sounds painful! =) We'll see what my doctor has to say when I go see him next Monday. Maybe I'll have her a little early??? =)

Early sounds like a good plan! Oh, I hope she still delivers easily!!! I'm sure you do too. BUT, how awesome that she is obviously healthy and developing really, really well!!!

Yes, I'm so glad that she seems to be QUITE healthy! =) But OH how I hope it goes smoothly! And I HOPE that she's in the eights...and not any bigger! =)

I pray all goes well for you Princess Sara Sue, and I too rejoice... really!... that Ainsley is so healthy. If you wait long enough, she might come out already potty-trained. hahahahaha
