Our little guy has always been very active with a great heartbeat, but about 6 weeks ago, he measured in the 10th percentile. So, the doctors had me going in for ultrasounds twice a week just to make sure he was doing okay, which concerned us at first because we didn't know what to expect. However, he always passed the test with flying colors, so we were content to have a healthy, if somewhat shrimpy, little guy.
This week, they measured again and he weighed in at about 5 lb. 6 oz, in the 34th percentile. YAY! My pep talks to him about using his energy to grow instead of to kick my ribs must have worked.
Now we move into the last month count-down, though I remind myself that most first babies come late. We are so excited to meet our little guy!
