Peanut Update

Yesterday we had an ultrasound scheduled for 3:30. By 4:20 we still hadn't been called back. I checked with the receptionist, she said that they were backed up b/c Dr. D. had a compliation with one of the ultrasound. Of course I couldn't ask what that meant, but I had to remember unfortunately this may be the worst day of another couple's life & to have patience. Within a few minutes, we were taken back. Peanut had been wiggling around all day, so I wasn't worried about him. We saw the heartbeat - that makes me so happy each time. Because he was moving so much, the tech wasn't able to get any good pictures of him, she was able to take measurements - just no new cute faces to see.
They estimate that Peanut weighs 6 lb., 3 oz.!! I'm only 33 weeks 4 days. We're inducing at 38 weeks - how big will Peanut get??

My official guestimate is 8 lbs. 5 oz by his induction date. If left to term.. 9 lbs. 3 oz. What's my prize going to be?

Boy those ladies in that breastfeeding video had big boobies no? I can't get over it.

I know - I have wonder big mine will get - scary!

Hrm...I'll check with DH regarding a prize - perhaps the equilavent of Peanut's weight in Jelly Belly jellybeans - at $7/lb X 8-9 lb. - $56 - $63+ worth of jelly beans!!

You should get the jelly beans before you give birth, everybody needs that many at all times anyway. That's kind of an exciting thought, actually! Off to H.EB I go...

OMG - My spelling is horrible & I'm leaving words out. Must proof-read before posting.

The other day I came across a neat birth 'favor' - 1 oz. prepackaged Jell.y Bell.y bags - pink/cotton candy for girls & blue/berry for boys. The bag just said "It's a boy/girl." , not personalized, but nice to have at the hospital. I know I wouldn't do the candy bar announcements or similar ideas b/c I'd have to mail them out later. I'd end up eating all the candy bars instead.

Now I want jell.y bell.y.
