Drink Your Way To a Better Baby

Ultrasound #376 this afternoon elicited the following pertinent facts:

On account of my decision to drink my own weight in water in order to increase the amniotic fluid levels, the fluid index went up from 7.7 to 12.5, which is above the cutoff for normal.

Spudly says "thanks very much mum for drinking all that water, it sure does give me a lot more room to move around in. Being 8lb7oz doesnt give one a great deal of room to start with y'know."

Yes, that's right 8lbs 7oz.

His legs are long like mine, measuring at 42 weeks. His stomach measures 41 weeks and his head measured almost 39. His cheeks are gloriously chubby, his lips luscious (he was having a drink at the time) and we could see his eyelashes. EYELASHES! Takes after his dad in that department.

He's gonna be tall and spunky but he needs to cut down on the chocolate eclairs. Damn.

    Did the 8.7 pounds come from the ultrasound measurements? In my experience they're often off when estimating weight (though pretty accurate on everything else). My OBs were much closer at getting the right weight just by feeling baby through my stomach.

    I'm right there with you with only 11 days to go. I've been told (by the OB) mine's at 8.2 pounds.

    Hope you didn't buy too many newborn diapers as my first child was 8.12 when born and was wearing the next size up before even leaving the hospital! The smallest size gave him plumber's crack!

    Here's to a quick and easy delivery for both of us!

  3. Yeah. The sooner you give birth, the sooner you can celebrate St. Pat's day with a few drinks.

Comments make blogging a conversation, rather than mere self-indulgent navel-gazing. Look at that big empty space down there...just waiting for your thoughts.
