It has been a while since I last updated the weblog with information about my wife and baby. Last week my wife was told that her belly size shows that she is 2 weeks larger than she should be. Today we were able to confirm this with a third ultrasound. After a bit of measuring, the technician was able to confirm that the baby is 1 to 2 weeks larger than normal. My wife is 35 weeks 5 days and the ultrasound says 37 weeks. The technician guessed that the baby could currently weigh about 6.5lbs to 7lbs (71% percentile). My wife has been complaining that the baby is too big lately and now we understand why.
The rest of the ultrasound went great and we got to see some more great pictures of the face, heartbeat and even his lungs practicing to breathe. Everything appears to be as planned and other than the additional size of the baby, it appears to be good. My wife will have a doctors appointment next week in which we will get a bit more information and see how the doctor wants to proceed. The ultrasound below shows a pretty decent shot of his chubby face. I was also born with a chubby face and later turned into skinny kid (gotta love that high metabolism). The first thing that came to my mind when seeing this new picture was that my sons face looks like the face on Mars. Interesting.
