02/04/08 Baby update February 4, 2008

Ok, so the ultrasound shows that she’s freakin’ huge … 8 lbs 3 ozs at 36 weeks. They did an amnio and from first glance at the fluid the doctor thinks she will be mature enough to deliver on Wednesday. They’re sending it off and I should know something late this afternoon. Stay tuned …

    As long as she’s healthy… right? She’s already bigger than both my kids were at 39 and 41 weeks in utero. Was Christopher big too?

  2. Liz Says:

    Christopher was 7lbs 7ozs at 39+ weeks.

  3. Julie Says:

    7-7 certainly isn’t huge. You didn’t have gestational diabetes that time did you? That’s what makes the baby so big.

  4. Liz Says:

    I didn’t have diabetes with Christopher. He was a normal sized kid. But it is quite common to get it with successive babies. Something about the hormones interfering with the insulin. So, it’s the diabetes that makes the baby big. Because my body isn’t processing the sugar, it goes straight to the baby and she gains all of the weight. This is why they want to control my blood sugar so she’s not too huge.
