Baby #2 | Mr. Chubbers





We had our ultrasound at UNC hospital yesterday afternoon and all was well. No excess amniotic fluid and one healthy, chunky baby boy. Apparently they think he's already 6 lbs. 9 oz., which is only 2 oz. bigger than Seb at birth! They weren't really able to clear up the due date, though. UNC thinks I am 35 weeks, and the birth center says I'm 33 weeks, so it's really anyone's guess as to when this mister is going to show up. But the fact that I'm measuring at 35 weeks makes me think he's coming earlier rather than later. In the meantime, I'm soaking up the fact that I have one child that sleeps 13 hours every night and takes 3 + hour naps. Having a newborn is going to hit me hard, let me tell you. But at the same time, I still can hardly wait. It was so fun to see him stretching and opening his mouth and sticking his tongue out. There's a baby in there, folks, and we can't wait to meet him.

  3. As my midwife keeps telling me, different places will probably measure within a couple of weeks...and if it's within a couple of weeks, we'll have a general idea of when the baby will come...though he'll probably come when we least expect it, anyway. :) So glad to hear all is well!

    1. haha that's exactly how the doctor at UNC hospital described it to me. i guess overall it helps to not have specific expectations because i know of so many people that just couldn't handle their pregnancy anymore once they reached the due date. understandable, of course, you have been waiting for that date for 9 months, so it would be very disappointing and difficult to keep being pregnant day after day. hope you're feeling well, heidi!
