BIG Baby!

We are 8 months this week!  The weeks are flying by!  

Our appointment this week went great.  Surro babe is head down (yay!) and looks perfect! His heart rate is 155 which is awesome. He is measuring 6.6 pounds already!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  No wonder I feel so huge and squished! Check out his adorable chubby cheeks:  


I will be seeing my OB weekly now for the remainder of the pregnancy. Whenever a baby is on the bigger side, my OB does weekly ultrasounds and fetal non stress tests just making sure that the baby is thriving. Because of a marginal placenta we’ve been watching surro babe making sure he’s growing enough and now we’re watching him because he’s grown so much! Oh the irony! 

R and E are busy getting everything ready for their stay here (flights, short term rental, all the newborn gear, etc.).  So exciting!!!

Bonding From Afar 

We are 31 weeks!!  My babies all came 1-2 weeks early so we are anticipating the same for this birth.  That means that surro babe will likely be back in his daddies’ arms where he belongs in just 7 to 8 weeks!  In the meantime, surro babe spends his evenings listening to voice messages from his daddies and big sister (with the help of Belly Buds).  I play the messages every evening when surro babe is most active so he can bond with his family and know their voices when he’s born.  ❤️

30 Weeks!

Feeling good other than feeling squished (especially at night when I’m trying to sleep).  Baby is still very active!  At my OB appointment today everything looked great, and my OB commented again on how big this baby is.  

7 Months!

We had another ultrasound this week.  My OB and the ultrasound tech kept exclaiming over how big surro babe is.  He is measuring in the 90th percentile at just over 3.5 pounds!  No wonder I’m starting to feel squished!  Everything looked great on the ultrasound.

In just 10 weeks or so I’ll be delivering this little cutie pie into his daddies’ arms!  ❤️❤️❤️
