YIKES....oh WOW!

I went for my bio-physical profile today. They were making sure the blood flow through the placenta and umbilical cord was healthy and that Baby AC is developing and growing like he/she should be! So I plopped down in the chair and she readjusted me to a good position, we warned her that we didn't want to know the gender and she began. She started out by measuring the babies head circumference and then she stopped and re-measured....she hesitated and asked "how far along are you?" I'm 34 weeks today....she looked back at the screen and said "Yikes...oh WOW" Todd asked what that meant and she said that we have an over achiever! She then continued to measure the baby and said several more "yikes" and "wow"s Then she showed us on the screen how big they're calculating the baby to 34 weeks the baby is 7 lbs 5 oz! HOLY COW! So she played a little longer, looking at this and that, the baby has both kidneys and a good size stomach (obviously) and was practice breathing! Then she was looking to get a good picture of the babies face but since the baby is face down and STUBBORN as all get out, he/she wouldn't roll over and actually crossed his/her arms over the face (Todd sleeps like that) so no face shots! but we did see LOTS of LONG hair! LOL! Too fun! So everything looks great but maybe a little plus sized! This should be my biggest baby by far! Blood flow through the umbilical cord and placenta was VERY healthy and looked great! Everything is functioning as planned! And we of course have only one to thank for that! So Thank God for BIG miracles! We only have about a month left, lots can happen in that month....I have faith that everything that will happen will be good things!
