A lesson from our Lazy Bones...

If you don't move, you might just get chubby!

We had our ultrasound yesterday and our appointment today to find out how our little baby is growing inside of me. As I mentioned before, the doctor was concerned that the baby was too small because I am measuring about 4 weeks behind. However, we have no reason to worry because we found that we actually have quite a chubby baby already. I was shocked to hear that the baby is already weighing in at 6lbs 14oz at 361/2 weeks! This means that in two weeks, we'll likely have an 8 lb baby born a week and a half early. Can't imagine what we could have if I went to 40 weeks! We got a few little peeks at our baby's face, but it was actually really hard to see anything because he/she is so crunched. The baby's face is literally smashed into my right hip bone and refused to move even a little bit. The tech did get a few distorted shots of the face and it was quite apparent that this baby has super chubby cheeks. According to the doctor, our little one also is carrying quite a bit of weight in the girth...I can relate right now:) The baby really did look cute, even with the nose smashed into something. All this time, I thought I was carrying this tiny baby. I'm so shocked, but we're so excited to meet our little bruiser! Two weeks from today....or less, if I have anything to say about it!

Amy, What an awesome God we serve! Praise God your little lazy bones is growing like crazy and very comfortable... even with his/her nose all smooshed... this could be a sign of an easy going baby!
I'm very excited for you and I'll be praying as the day arrives.

Amy, I am so happy and thrilled for you that you got another peek at your little one! I'm so anxious to hear the news about whether Parker has a brother and sister; I can't believe it's less than two weeks away!! I'm thinking of you, friend!!

I am sorry that I have been such a horrible commenter this week! I haven't been feeling too great. But...

1. I loved reading Parker's birth story. Even though I was there the day he was born, it still made me cry!

2. I can't believe that the baby in your little itty bitty tummy is so big!

3. I can't believe that you are having a baby in less than 2 weeks!

4. I know I keep on saying this, but I am so excited to meet the newest Randall!!

Did you know that we are finding out our baby's gender on MONDAY!? Crazy. Crazy.

I love you!

xoxo Andi

It's a good thing you're scheduled a couple weeks early. : )
