our not-so-little boy Boo

Last night my ultrasound apt was quick & just a little bit informative.  The jist of what the tech shared with me;
  • Boo is already measuring a healthy 8 1/2 pounds! (I'm not even 38 weeks yet...)
  • He is too big to have a new picture taken...
  • He is head down & facing my spine, so I didn't get to see his face, bummer
  • He seems to have some hair already
  • We have definite confirmation that he is a boy ;-)
To give you an idea on the sizes of babies I'm "use to", Peanut was 7.5 & Squirt was 7.4, they were both born at 38 weeks & 2 days.  Needless to say, I sooo hoping that he gets here very soon!

Also, I did have some pretty consistent contractions yesterday for 5+ hours!  I was starting to get a bit excited and they subsided a bit.  They continued, very mildly, throughout the night & I'm still feeling them this morning.  Here's to hoping & praying that our Boo is really ready to meet us in the next few days.

Praying for you!

Madison (my first) was 9 lbs. 5 oz. and I had her completely naturally. You will be completely fine.
