(Not So) Little John Morgan

Well, here's a preview of our "little" baby boy. We had an ultrasound today to check on the growth of the baby. When we got there, the technician said "So, you're here because your doctor wants to check the growth?" I said "Yes Ma'am." She said "Okay, is she thinking large or small?" I couldn't help but laugh out loud and say "Umm, large. But thanks though, you're sweet." It was pretty funny. And for the results:

Not that you could guess, but here comes another big one folks! We're at 36 1/2 weeks, and he weighs in at 8lbs 7 oz. Now, that's give or take a half pound, so he can really be anywhere between 8 and 9 lbs right now. They say babies will gain anywhere from half a pound to a pound per week the last month, so who knows where he'll end up!

As you can imagine, this upsets our VBAC plans in a big (no pun intended) way! That's okay, we'll just wait for our dainty little girl that will come along and allow for a successful VBAC! Lol. :o)

I don't have another appointment until April 1st, at which time we'll schedule a date for the C-section, but we're thinking it will probably be around the 6th...they like to schedule a C-section for 39 weeks so you don't "accidentally" go into labor.

Seeing his little face on the ultrasound was so wonderful...we just can't wait to meet him! From what we can see, he's got the same cheeks that Levi had (actually, has) only bigger! :o) The picture is looking at his face from the front, not a profile, but just kind-of from the side. Can't wait to see what he actually looks like! Thanks for all the thoughts and prayers!
