32 weeks 2 days

I had an ultrasound today.  It's funny how little you can see on the ultrasound as the baby gets bigger.  The tech took a few measurements and tried to get some pictures, but Emma was facing down so we couldn't get a shot of her face.  Based on the measurements, the tech estimated that baby is weighing in at 4 pounds 12 ounces already.  This puts her in the 71st percentile (above average).

After the ultrasound, we went in to talk to the doctor.  He said she is above average, but if she keeps up at the current growth rate, she should be around 8 pounds 4 ounces at birth if I deliver at or around my due date.

I can't believe I only have 53 days until my due date!  Seems so crazy how fast time is flying.

Here are a few pictures from the ultrasound.

The past two weekends, I had two baby showers.  I received lots of wonderful outfits and baby items.  So excited for Emma to get here!
