|My view of 34 weeks|
Last week I had gone to the doctor and she seemed to think that Otto was measuring about 3 weeks big. Today we had an ultrasound to find out just what he looked like in there. Sure enough, they believe he is weighing in at 6 lbs 4 oz already at 34 weeks. With approximately 6 more weeks to go Dr. Rupe thinks he could get up into the 9 lb range. I've heard stories from people where they make these estimates ahead of time and then end up being off, so I'm not letting myself get too freaked out that he will actually being a 9-10 lb baby.
I had one of those normal/random questioning thoughts a couple of weeks ago and thought "What if HE comes out a SHE?!". I mentioned it to the ultrasound tech so she did everything she could to confirm for the 3rd time that he is a boy. Thankfully, she set my mind to ease - It's *still* a boy!!!
She also tried to get some pictures of his face, but he is now head down and was facing my back so we weren't able to see what he really looks like all fattened up. We will just have to wait 6 more weeks.
