We went and had an ultrasound today because my little Elouise is measuring big.
Since Hazel was 9 pounds 4 oz, I have been expecting a big baby.
I am supposed to be 34 weeks 4 days pregnant and little miss Elouise is measuring 37 weeks. She weighs 6 pounds 6 oz. She has the chunkiest little cheeks I have ever seen and her little tummy is so precious. She will be a chunky monkey and I can't wait. The ultrasound tech also said she had hair... but mostly she just kept saying how chunky she was!
This is her looking at the "camera" with her hand beside her face. Look at those cheeks!!
I'm a bit worried because she is still breech. So that makes me nervous... especially considering how big she is but the doctor said I have "plenty of fluid" so she definitely has room to move.
The ultrasound tech said most babies who were 34 weeks measured at 4 to MAYBE 5 pounds. She seemed quiet impressed with how big my little munchkin is. That doesn't make me feel better. I had a little panic attack in the room waiting for the doctor.
The good news is is because she is breech still, I get to have another ultrasound in 2 weeks to see if she has flipped. Can you please pray with me that she flips in time? Have you ever had an babies who were breech? I need any advice I can get.
How far along?: 34 weeks and 4 days. (Haha)
Size of the baby?: The app says 5 pounds and 19-22 inches. My little angel is 6 pounds 6 oz.
Sleep?: Still sleeping good. I have pretty bad hip pain on my left side but I just got a heating pad and I'm hoping that that helps with the pain.
Best moment this week?: Seeing her sweet angel face today!!!! She has really, really long legs and fingers and her face is so chunky and I can't wait to squeeze her cheeks!
Miss anything?: Nope. I just can not wait to hold her.
Gender?: Confirmed that she is a GIRL again today! Go away bad dreams!
Bed Rest?: None.
Limitations?: I can't really bend over. It sort of suffocates me so I try not to unless it's necessary because I can't breathe.
Pregnancy Symptoms?: Hip and back pain. That's pretty much it though.
Wedding Rings?: On! And I got my engagement ring back!! Feels so good to have it back.
Looking Forward To?: My next ultrasound and her flipping (hopefully.)
Weight Gain?: Up 27 pounds. If I have her in 4 weeks (very probable) then I'll be up to 31 pounds and I am totally okay with that. I've pretty consistently gained 1 pound/ week which is normal so I'm feeling pretty good.
The doctor said to hold out until 39 weeks (4 short weeks) and then we will probably induce.
