Throughout my pregnancy, people have said that I look way more pregnant than I am, and at my last checkup even my doctor agreed. I had an ultrasound today to check Lelly’s growth, just to make sure she wasn’t growing out of control.
Happily, the measurements today show that Lelly’s growth is average and my doctor estimates that she’ll be about a 7-pounder. Both my sister and I were over 9 pounds, though, so I wouldn’t be surprised if she winds up being a little bigger.
Most of what’s making me look big is apparently the amniotic fluid surrounding the baby. For the record, I am not about to give birth any day now! I have about seven weeks to go, though with Christmas in less than two weeks I think the time will fly by!
Please enjoy this picture of my baby! (I love how she has that scrunched-up newborn look to her face even though she isn’t even born yet.)
For those of you who need a little extra help interpreting the photo, here you go. I’m not offended that you can’t figure it out, ultrasounds are tricky!
