We still have a boy!

We had our third trimester scan today to check baby's position and make sure we still have a boy. Definitely still a boy!! NO question about it. I wasn't really too worried because the ultrasound tech at our second trimester scan was so sure. But I have grown so attached to my baby boy that I could not imagine my child no longer being a boy at this point and was relieved to hear that nothing has changed!

He has been growing like crazy. My coworker thought that I even looked bigger since last week. Though I am now 33 weeks per my due date, in the ultrasound his head measured at 36 weeks and his stomach measured at 35 weeks. In fact, one due date showed February 14th! Hello?! What? The doctor then measured his femur (the largest bone in his body) which was 33 weeks. I asked if we should expect a much sooner birth than planned and my doctor still thought we should anticipate end of February/early March. Obvious next question, then -- does my child have a huge head? That could be bad on so many levels..... I guess we'll post more when we know more!

Sarah, Allen was 8lbs. 13oz. and 21 1/2 ins. long when he was born. A baby that size does Not have a small head. =-)

Maybe he'll wait until March 13 to come and share a birthday with his "Aunt" Laura! Glad you are feeling better, Sarah!
