Went to the doctor yesterday and baby is looking great. Brandon is measuring 1 lb 10 oz which is a little big but I would rather a little big that small. He is in the 62 percentile for his gestation age which makes me very happy. He is currently breech but they said that he has plenty of room to move around so I shouldn't worry. Heartbeat is 141 bpm which is about where he has been for the past few months. Dr. Hennessey said that he is "growing marvelously." My next appointment will be Jan. 11. I have to do the glucose test for the next appointment. Should be interesting as I have heard the stuff you have to drink is gross.
Below are some new ultrasound shots.

How your baby's growing
Head to heels, your baby now measures about 13 1/2 inches. His weight - a pound and a half - isn't much more than an average rutabaga, but he's beginning to exchange his long, lean look for some baby fat. As he does, his wrinkled skin will begin to smooth and he'll start to look more and more like a newborn. He's also growing more hair - and if you could see it, you'd now be able to discern its color and texture.
