Yesterday, we had a regular OB appointment. When we got there, I mentioned that I thought the baby was moving a little slow over the weekend. It may have been all the traveling or the fact that I was busy and I just didn't notice as much. The doctors at our OB clinic are so patient with my anxious worries. They decided to do an ultrasound and a Biophysical Profile just to check everything out. The Biophysical Profile is basically a simple and painless test to access the baby's health and development. Baby was wiggling around during the test and tech focused in on the chest so we could actually watch the baby breath and she said our baby has hair already. Our little overachiever scored 8 our of 8, an A-plus rating. The doctor said our baby is absolutely perfect.
This is my favorite photo from yesterday's ultrasound. Check out our baby's cute little perfect ear. The tech said that she couldn't get a good face picture because she was upside down in the perfect position for birth.
Your baby's the size of a winter melon!
Yay! Baby has reached full term. He likely measures around 18.9 to 20.9 inches and weighs about 6.2 to 9.2 pounds. He's gaining about 1/2 ounce each day.
