highs and lows of motherhood

Today we went to the doctor for our weekly visit.

There was good news.

Then, there was bad news:

Good news = “you get to have another ultrasound because your belly is smaller than average” (translation: we get to see Abbey again! maybe Abbey is a small baby!)

Bad news = “Let’s see what the computer measures her at . . . oh, wow, 7 pounds, 13 ounces . . . shes a big one” (translation: that’s almost 8 pounds. she has about 4 weeks left in there.  babies gain half a pound a week.  Abbey may be almost 10 pounds!)

. . . . . . .

Pray that Abbey would be a healthy size . . . and that the machine was wrong.

Beth thanks you.

    WOW! Micah was born right at 38 weeks and he weighed exactly 7 lbs 13 oz… so maybe she will come really soon! If not (and you do in fact have a 10 lb baby), the bigger the baby, the faster they sleep through the night… So, that is a BIG plus!

    It sounds like she will be a good, healthy size. Also, apparently the ultrasound measurements are something like, “Give or take a pound either way.” So she could be smaller than you think…or bigger. But probably smaller.

    You’ll be fine, sweet sister!
