Big Baby Update

I had my Dr. appointment this morning to go over the results of my 3rd trimester ultra sound & can I just tell you how much I LOVE my Dr?! She's SO great- very personable & friendly & just puts all my worries at ease! She's easier to talk to than some of the nurse practitioners/ midwives I've seen & I'm just really thankful she's so good! I gained 4 more pounds over the past 3 weeks (at least it wasn't 6 AGAIN) so that puts me up to 16 lbs total- She was happy with that, so I guess I am too :). Anyway, she agreed with the ultra sound tech- the baby is big (she said a lot of her patients that deliver at 38 weeks have 5-6 lb. babies & mine was 5lb. 3 oz @ 32 weeks). Another thing she said that was funny was that my uterus is measuring 31 inches (which is what it should measure at 31 weeks and I'll be 33 weeks tomorrow), so I'm "just ALL baby up in there!" - a direct quote :).
What's the plan now? I'm going to have another ultra sound at 37 weeks to see His size (& HOPEFULLY get to see HIM, but I'll try not to get my hopes up this time) & depending on how that goes she said I can probably plan on having him that next week (which is Christmas :-S) or the week after- I'm hoping for the week after Christmas, but whatever happens happens.

Glad everything looks great. You are so cute pregnant! Heather was born on the 26th of Dec. I went in labor Christmas night. I was so excited! I had waited almost 6 years to have a baby! I didn't care if she would have been born on Christmas. She was my best Christmas present ever!
