We had another ultrasound today to measure the baby for growth due to my diabetes. I have pictures, but am working from home, so I can’t scan them in until tomorrow.

As for his size, the tech said that he was a “big boy.” At 29 weeks his weight was estimated at 3 lbs 12 oz and today it was estimated at 6 lbs 7oz. There is a one pound differential, so he could be anywhere between 5 lbs 7 oz and 7 lbs 7oz. I still have 5 weeks to go according to my due date, but I’m beginning to wonder if I will make it that long. I have no medical reasons to think this, but just based on my doctor’s recent comments and a gut feeling that I have.

We also were told that he has big feet and is very long (they had to estimate the length of his legs on several pictures because they couldn’t get them to fit on one screen).

I’m getting anxious about these last few weeks. We’re still working on the nursery (we’re picking up the furniture this weekend while we’re in Chicago). After that, we should pretty much be done. But I’m most concerned about labor and delivery. I’m scared of needing a c-section – honestly that freaks me out more than anything else. I hate the feeling of being out of control, and even though my level of control is still limited if I have a “natural” delivery, I still feel like I have much more control than if I have to have surgery.

Just trying to stay as calm as possible…
