No more IUGR!!!!

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
We had our weekly u/s yesterday and baby has gained 20oz in 7 days!!!!! Now weighing in at 6lb15oz at 39 wks (yesterday). Measuring right on and I'm 1cm dilated, 30%effaced and have had some show today so I am extremely excited. I can't believe the growth rate! The MW was so impressed and told me to keep eating the way I have this past week (2 eggs for breakfast, 2 chicken cutlets a day and a pint of butter pecan ice cream with extra nuts during the week in addition to what I was eating to begin with). So, that's my current mission Then she joked at this rate if I go 2 more weeks the baby will be almost 10 pounds! Imagine that after all these weeks of worrying my baby would be mini!

I am very happy for you! That is great news! I guess increasing what you are eating is really working and helping your baby to grow, grow, grow!
