Huge Sigh of Relief

First and foremost, I want to thank everyone who has been praying for my little family during this pregnancy. I firmly believe that prayers are answered, and so far, this pregnancy has been going very smoothly.

But here's the exciting reason that I'm posting! We had another growth scan on Friday, and Baby G is a big, healthy boy! He's officially two pounds heavier than KB was when she was born. Right now he weighs roughly 4 pounds,10 ounces at 32 weeks. He's a long guy, and his length is measuring closer to 34 weeks, about 18 inches.

Dr. Hirata, my GD specialist, says he wouldn't expect for G to fall off his growth curve. The only problem may be that he actually gets "too big" because of my GD. I put too big in quotes because there is just no such thing for me, to be honest. I have to have a c-section anyway, so what do I care if he's a 10 pounder (as long as he's healthy)??  

We can expect Baby G to gain about half a pound per week between now and delivery, so even as I write this, he's closer to 5 pounds. I just can't believe it! KB CAME HOME from the NICU at 4 pounds, 8 ounces. Came home!!  She rode in a car seat, and slept in her bouncy seat for the first time, all at a weight that her unborn baby brother has already surpassed!  Such a blessing..

So, with 6.5 weeks until delivery, I'd say we're looking at an 8 pound baby boy. I can't wait!

Oh, and one last thing.. We got a 4d ultrasound, probably our last one, and Baby G still won't show us what he looks like. He's always snuggled up with the placenta, so his facial features can't be distinguished. He did give us this view, though! It's his booty cheeks!
