39 Weeks

Whew! 39 weeks!

We had another ultrasound, where they confirmed that:

  • He is, in fact, still a boy.
  • He has the ability to look exactly like the Phantom from The Phantom of the Opera in some images.

They also told us more useful information, like that he’s in the head-down position and estimated at about 8 lbs, 3 oz!  (Which is normal, as the average U.S. baby birth weight is now up to 8 lbs).

So you guys… this week there was a little dilemma. The baby is supposed to be the size of a watermelon. But guess what?! There are no watermelons out yet at the grocery store. Since we’ve pretty much made our way through the large produce, we went with a carton of strawberries. Kinda lame, but oh well! Hopefully, if the baby doesn’t come by next Tuesday, there will be a watermelon or pumpkin at the store… otherwise we’ll just have to get a little more creative!

    Emily –

    Once the bouncing baby boy gets here, you probably won’t be posting as much and I, for one, am really going to miss these posts. I’m getting so excited for you and wish you a safe and healthy delivery!
