34 Week Ultrasound

We had our 34 week growth ultrasound with Peanut yesterday. We had been counting down the day to get to see our little man again. We were looking forward to the ultrasound all throughout the holidays and also telling ourselves that it will be the last time we'll see him on a monitor. In our minds, the next time we would get to see him it would be on his birthday.

Yesterday's stats are as follows: Peanut is supposedly a BIG baby (causing a little panic on my end). At 34 weeks 3 days, he is measuring ahead - he is measuring 35 weeks 6 days. His current estimated weight is approximately 6 lbs 10 oz. His head, arms and leg only measure about 1 week ahead; however, his abdomen was in the 98% percentile for his gestational age. Maybe he had just finished with his breakfast? After all, my appointment was at 8.30AM.

Much to our surprise, we were told to come back for another growth ultrasound in 2 weeks. I am happy to go back to see him again; however, we were sort of hoping that the next time we'll see him we'll actually get to hold him. I am hoping that when I meet with my OB at my next appointment, which is Friday, that she will give me the option to be induced at 38 or 39 weeks. I know that is probably wishful thinking.

Here are some pictures of yesterday's ultrasound. Just like last time, he was not happy about having his pictures taken. He just did not want to move his little hand in front of his face. The pictures are still cute and his nose looks just like Lucas' nose. Can't wait to meet him.

* The pictures have a little glare to them since I had to take a picture of them to get them uploaded. I haven't been able to get them scanned in yet. Hope you'll still be able to see his cute little chubby cheeks.


  1. He's absolutely gorgeous!!! Yay for big, healthy boys. :)

  2. Oh dear!! I hope it wasn't all of those weekly trips to Chipotle that has peanut tipping the scales. Ahhh well! No harm!! Maybe this one will grow up to be a "Foodie"


  3. He is the cutest thing!!!! Can't wait to meet him either.
