2lb chunky butt

You read that right. I just had to share, we had our bimonthly growth ultra sound with Vicki this week and found out this baby is pushing 2lbs at 25 weeks and 3 days!! And he's showing off his bad ass biceps! He also flipped back to breech, I knew something was up the way my stomach was moving all over the place the past few days.

2 freaking lbs! It's amazing how quick he is packing on weight. Last time I was fighting on bed rest, drinking gallons of water and scarfing down protein just to get Nolan to gain 2 more ounces. AND that took 3 weeks to do.

This is just awesome in my book.

Saturday is 26+1 weeks and the gestational age Nolan was born. I don't have any plans to be at HP this week or the next. My OB put me on leave for at least 2 weeks and she said we will watch me closely the next 2 weeks and I might be able to go back to work. So far, so good. Guess it's time to order his crib and go register for this baby shower. EEEEKS!

I figured I would post what bimonthly ultrasounds and MFM visits look like. This is JUST the month of Sept. Good thing we found a nice photo album to stick all these in. It's pretty neat to watch him grow during all this 'high risk' business I am part of.

Ashley, I'm sooo happy for you and glad the little man is thriving. I just wanted to let you know that the other day my peri told me that the ultrasound photos will only last 5-10 years because of the thermal something paper. I had never been told that with the whole album I had from Peyton so I wanted to give you a heads up incase you didn't know. Keep getting bigger!!
