Ultrasound and Doctor's Appointment

Doctor's appointment yesterday went great.  Brandon is already head down which is awesome since they usually that stay this way once they get in this position.  The ultrasound tech said that he doesn't really have any room to move into a breech position so that's good news. He is measuring in the 68 percentile and is already weighing in at a whopping 4lbs 12oz. which is about 8-10oz. bigger than most babies his gestational age.

I think he looks just like Nick and definitely has his giant head, hands and feet.  Brandon has a head full of hair which is neat to know (he won't be a bald baby, LOL).  He was being a wiggle worm again which they say is good and is practicing his breathing for when he makes his grand debut hopefully the end of March (I don't think I'll be able to make it to April). 

I have to start going to the doc once a week now so they can keep an eye on my blood pressure and sugar levels but so far everything looks great.  The good news about this is I get ultrasounds every week.  I love being able to see him and how much he is growing.

Below are some new ultrasound pics from yesterday's appointment.

His little face all squished.  He has a cute little nose.

He wouldn't move his arms so we could get a good look.

Giant hand covering his face.   Look how long his fingers are.
