Big babies run in the family......

I went to the doctor yesterday morning and here is the scoop: After the ultrasound to estimate the fetal weight, Abbot is already at approximately 8.5 pounds! I still have 3 weeks to go! The doctor doesn't want to induce because I have not really started to dilate yet so our plan of action is to wait and see what happens and know that a C-section could be an option when he decides to come. I suppose that if he does decide to come early then we know he won't be struggling for weight!

I talked to Mom after my appointment and found out that there are several 9 pounders (and up) that run in the family. I suppose we're just made to birth big ole' babies!

How about "healthy babies". Have him tonight and he can come to your shower on Sat.

Woah!! Are you planning on working right up until he comes? I'm praying that you can try to get some sleep in these last few weeks. Cheers to big babies!

You used one t in Abbot(t). Have you changed the spelling of his name?

See you tomorrow. Love you.

I didn't change the spelling, just made a typo. My bad. :)

Dont worry too much about it. They told me Dayton was going to be 7 pounds... he was 9! Then they told me Dacie was going to be AT LEAST 8 1/2.... she was 7 1/2.
Only God knows, so just give it to HIM and know that you and Abbott are in HIS hands. I'm praying for you all!

He is going to be amazing no matter what!! My friend Blair just had a nephew who was born 6 weeks early and weighed 8lbs.

I am so sorry I couldn't be at the shower! :(
I had to work until 7.

Where are you delivering?
