Yes, he's a very big boy! Before we went in to our 36 week scan, Rich and I had a go at guessing his weight. I guessed 6 pounds 3oz, and Rich an ounce less. We were a bit surprised, then, when he weighed quite a bit more! But all looks excellent. He'd head down, as he has been for a long while, and his bottom (as I thought) is pushing itself up above my belly button. The odd looking 'bump' that appears on my side is his knee, and somehow he still manages to have a spare foot lodged into my rib.
We're getting so close! I've been having a few cramps, which aren't especially comfortable, though certainly not painful. I've also been experiencing some braxton hicks, which is quite exciting as I can't help but feel that this is a sign that things are getting close!
I had my check up with Deb on Monday. All looks good - measuring right on track again, and gained a pound in two weeks for a total of 16. I really felt as though I had gained at least 10 in those weeks!
I finished packing the poppet's bag and now I have to do mine. It seems both so close, yet so far away.... But I am feeling more than ready to meet this little chico - although a finished bathroom would be lovely before he comes home...
