Growth Ultrasound

Today I am 36 weeks and 5 days, which means that this Sunday Baby H will be 37 weeks and full term! My due date is not until October 2nd, but that's just around the corner (23 days, but whose counting?)! This Sunday she will be fully developed and she will spend the rest of her days in there gaining weight.

So today was a bittersweet appointment for us because it was our very last growth ultrasound, but everything looked perfect, so we couldn't be happier! The heart rate was 150 beats per minute and she weighs approximately 6lbs 9oz. It was definitely harder to figure out what the images were on the ultrasound machine this time around, because baby girl is running out of room and looked pretty squished!

Here's a few pictures from this morning (the ones that I was able to make out).


If you're watching the pregnancy ticker on the side of my blog, the baby/fruit comparison will change on Sunday for the very last time.... The next fruit in line is WATERMELON!


  1. I can't wait to have my first taste of watermelon this year!!! love the nose shot and the face shot looks like she is holding a toy animal! I can tell she has a lot of personality already!!!

  2. p.s. I just showed your sister the pictures and told her that baby H was gonna be the size of a watermelon...she said (and I quote) "whoa..that's huge!"

  3. Thanks a lot, best sister - Ha! I'm actually feeling "whoa, huge"!
