Ultrasound

I now have a little more time to write about some details. The baby looks good and everything. He's a little on the big side, but we've come to expect that in this family. I know my dates are extremely accurate when calculating my due date and according to that he should be weighing at about 8 ounces. According to the measurements taken during the ultrasound, they have him weighing in at 11 ounces. That doesn't sound like a big difference, but when they're that small it kinda is. That's OK. I'd much prefer a big baby. I figured it was big anyway and almost thought it was twins since I'm quite a bit bigger this time around. I really thought we would be having another girl because after comparing belly photos with past pregnancies, I seem to be carrying the same and I definitely don't feel any different or anything. However, it was quite evident that our new little bundle of joy was a male! I really wanted a boy, but now that it is, it's kind of got me freaked out a little. I don't know why. The ultrasound tech did say that it looked like I had a low-lying placenta again. We won't know for sure until the radiologist looks at it and I go see the doctor again though. I had that with Abby and when they did the 2nd ultrasound to check it, the placenta had moved up and out of the way on it's own. So it's nothing to worry about at this point. If if doesn't move on it's own, we might have some problems.

Congrats!! I'm so excited for you. I can't wait to meet Jonah. Oh and I had low-lying placentas with all 3 of my boys--with Nathanael it was actually covering the cervix for a while, most likely it'll move and be no problem!! Praying for you and baby!!

Congrats, guys!

So, are you going to our neighbors? When do you move?

Thanks! We haven't turned in the application yet and they have a waiting list right now anyway, so we're not sure when we'll be your neighbors, but that's still what the plan is!!
