Baby Boy Update

My favorite 3D picture of him. 
Look at those chubby cheeks (;

Better late than never right? On Thursday, September 13th, we had another ultrasound to see how baby boy was measuring up. Since Daryl couldn't make it to the appointment I got it on video for him (;

Mama updates: If we go based off of my pre-pregnancy weight I've gained 14 lbs so far. If we go based off of me losing 5lbs during the first trimester and slowly gaining I've gained 19 lbs so far. I still haven't gotten any stretch marks and I hope and pray that I don't.

Baby updates: They took baby's head, thigh, and belly measurements in order to see whether his due date moved up or down. His little belly measured a week behind, his thigh bone a week ahead, and his head measured out 2 weeks ahead! His approximate weight that day was 3lbs 3 oz which is about the size of 4 naval oranges. I honestly have a strong feeling that he will come before November 26th but I'm going to stick with my original due date so I don't get my hopes up (; Other than baby boy measuring out a bit bigger everything is completely normal.  I'm hoping that my delivery goes as smooth as my pregnancy so far!


  1. do not fear mama, your delivery will be every bit as magical :) I'm due Nov. 21 and I go in for a measurement this week. She feels like a big girl so I have a feeling she'll come early as well but we shall see.....

  2. Ohhh that's so sweet Cecilia!!!! I'm excited for you. :)


  3. I'm so excited for you guys!!! Babies are awesome :)


  4. Congratulations! This is such an exciting time! I have a 9 month old boy (boys are the best ;)! ) but I can still remember what it was like to go for the ultrasounds. And you are doing fabulous! I gained 50 lbs. during my pregnancy, yikes!

    Keep taking care of yourself and enjoy this time with your husband... when baby comes it's a whole new and wonderful experience!
