Now taking bets on my baby's birth weight!


I’m amazed at what doctors can do these days. I could go on and on about cures, etc. But what I’m talking about today is my recent doc visit. I was sent in for a sonogram because despite being 37 weeks along in the pregnancy, my belly was measuring 41 weeks. So, off I was sent to make sure the baby was OK and that there was enough amniotic fluid for the little guy. I left that appointment today knowing that my unborn child’s liver, kidneys, brain and spine are developing perfectly. I also left knowing his weight right now. I thought that was pretty cool! J So, two weeks away, to the day, from my c-section my baby weighs 7 lbs 4oz. The past month I’ve been averaging roughly 2 lbs of weight gain per week (fun, fun). Since not all of that goes to the baby and most of it to my butt and hips (I’m not kidding here)…I’m guessing another 9 lb baby…


Now taking bets…

Peter was 1 oz shy of 9 lbs. After 18 hours of labor (roughly 16 of it spent at the hospital) he ultimately delivered by C-section...his poor little head was the shape of a peanut from trying to come out :( poor baby!

I'm thinking my cousin has it...9lbs 5oz sounds right...

we'll see! :)
