You all are so funny!
I might try to break the record for the largest birthed baby. I think the record is 16 lbs and some change. Lol. I've got a pretty sturdy frame so I'm not worried about the baby being too big yet, plus when I had my last u/s on Tuesday the u/s tech estimated 9 pounds 15 oz... with a margin of 21 oz!
so that's somewhere between 7 and a half and 10 pounds. Anyways, s/he'll be a healthy size.
I may have to start packing up my NB sized stuff though... If the baby cooks much longer s/he might grow out of all that before s/he even gets to wear the stuff! Oh well, I'm actually happy to think of having a big, sturdy baby for my first- DH and I will feel less like we're going to break him or her.
I'm hoping this is the sign of a passive, laid back baby. I was very passive and easy going. My mom had no trouble with me at all. I'd be thrilled if that were the case. My sister was just the opposite- a real handful with a mouth on her from the very beginning. We'll see!
The baby must be sleeping a lot in there. I feel occasional streching or moving to get comfortable, but I think it's mostly nap time in there. I'll try to find the heartbeat and monitor things that way before going in for another NST, since at this point they think I'm 41 weeks and will try to induce.
I wish I didn't know my dute date or that we lived in a world where it didn't matter. I bet if that were the situation I would just be enjoying my last few weeks of pregnancy. Oh well.
I've got some pics on MySpace
. I have a folder of pregnancy photos and I think I have a couple that were taken a week or two ago. I haven't gained any weight since then, I don't think, so that will give yu an idea of what I look like. Everyone thinks I have twins in there. Lol.
Thanks for the reassurance. I think I'd go crazy if it were for my MDC support group!
