6 weeks & counting…

Baby Walker is continuing to grow – a lot!  To catch everyone up, at my 29 week appointment, my stomach was measuring 32 weeks, so they were a little concerned about his size.  At my 31 week appointment, they did an ultrasound to get his measurements.  They said he weighed 4 pounds 7 ounces at that point which put him in the 76%.  Definitely NOT small, but they weren’t concerned.  They said he may not continue to grow at the same rate, so there’s still a chance he will be average sized. 

Today, we went to Wee See to get some pictures of our big boy.  It was great to see him and how much he’s changed.  It’s been about a week and a half since our last ultrasound, and according to the tech, he weighs 5 lbs 1 oz.  He wasn’t very cooperative today – he kept his face turned towards my spine, and when he would turn his head, he kept his hands up.  But we were still able to get some sweet shots:)

The closest we got to a front shot.  Such a sweet face!

Becca was able to go with me today, and I don’t think she quite knew what to think.  She was very quiet throughout the entire ultrasound, but I think she really enjoyed it.  Hearing his heartbeat is her favorite. 

I go back to the doctor Wednesday, and we will schedule my c-section.  It’s a little scary to think we’ve only got 6 weeks until this little man makes his debut!  I’m definitely nervous about having 2 children, but looking forward to meeting this sweet man.
