No, I’m not due “any day now” and yes, I’m sure it’s NOT twins. 😂
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!!!
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. ❤️
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.
