Biophysical and Ultrasound

Had another Doctor's appointment this morning.  It has been about 3 weeks since the last biophysical of Brandon so today was the day to do another.  3 weeks ago he was measuring in the 68 percentile and weighed 4 lbs 12 oz.  

Well, today he is MUCH bigger.  He is now measuring in the 78 percentile and weighed in at a whopping 6 lbs 11 oz.  He gained 2 pounds in 3 weeks!  His head is measuring 38 weeks, belly 36.5 weeks and legs 37 weeks.  I am technically only 35 weeks along so he is definitely on the larger side.  He is already head down and facing my back which is how you want them to face for delivery.  We couldn't get any good pictures of him today becuase of how he is situated but we did get to see that he really does have a full head of hair. 

Bad news from the doctor blood pressure was slightly elevated so I now get the pleasure of doing a 24 hour pee test.  This means I have to collect my urine for a 24 hour period and then drop it off at outpatient at FWBMC and then get some blood work done.  The best part of all this, I will be doing it tomorrow while at work and I have to keep the pee refrigerated.  Lovely :)
