LDB (almost) Week 33: Our Big Headed Boy

Today we had one more ultrasound to make sure LDB's little heart is all right (I have a form of Lupus that could have caused problems, but thankfully, his heart is perfectly fine!), and we got to have one last look at our little man before he makes his debut in 7(ish) short weeks.

Of course they do all kinds of measurements, and he is weighing in currently at about 5 pounds. His body is slightly bigger than average, but his HEAD. People, this boy's HEAD is measuring 5 weeks bigger than his actual gestational age! Next to the measurement on the screen, it said something like 97th percentile. His body is more like 60th.

When I think about it, we do have pretty big heads in my family. Bryan's family's heads are pretty average. We have decided this means he's gonna be hella smart. :) I am trying not to think of the implications this has for natural birth. :)

We also got the ultrasound tech to turn on the 4D ultrasound so we could get a more realistic picture of LDB's sweet big-headed face.

People, HOW CUTE IS OUR SON AND HIS LITTLE SMUSHED NOSE?!
