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!

Happy Mommy to one amazing girl (6y) and one sweet boy (2y), and wife to DH since 7/03 : :

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!
