Sleeping baby

36 weeks today!  I’m not sure how big the baby has gotten because I wasn able to attend the last ultrsound session.  The appointment was scheduled for today, but the doctor had a meeting or something so everything was rescheduled for last Thursday.  Since I had to work, I couldn’t be there, but it seems that everything is good.

I’m not sure why, but the doctor seemed to have a hard time getting the baby’s weight.  The machine kept returning 3100 grams (7lbs) which is about the size of a full term baby.  But considering that the baby was only 2100 grams (4.8lbs) a couple of weeks ago, I don’t see how the baby could have gained over 2 pounds in just 2 weeks.  So, we think that this is probably a mistake and the baby should be only about 2500 grams (just less than 6 pounds).

We got a new sonogram pic.  Its not a 3D, but its a pretty good 2D.  It takes a bit of imagination and a lot of squinting, but it’s a picture of Haruka’s big chubby face.  She has her eyes closed and facing downwards and to the right a bit.  There are only four weeks left.  Very nervous but very excited. 🙂
