The W Family Chronicles

5 weeks to go!

Posted on: December 16, 2008

Ultrasound this morning went very well.  She is big and if estimates are correct, could weigh 9 pounds (or more) at birth.  That would make her the biggest baby for me by far!  Ultrasounds aren’t always accurate for weight estimation, but she does seem to be bigger than the average baby for her gestational age.  My fluid levels are currently at the high end of normal, so for now we’re just going to watch them.

Otherwise everything looks great…she is practicing her breathing, moves appropriately, etc.  Assuming nothing else comes up, I’m still scheduled for a c-section on January 20.  That’s only 5 weeks from today!  I can hardly believe how close we are…

W Family Players

D is the dad, the husband, and the breadwinner. All around nice guy and good at pretty much everything he does. It's disgusting, really. But makes him worth keeping around.

M is the mom, the wife, and the hopeless housekeeper. At least the kids' heads haven't fallen off yet. Beyond that, she sucks at the "stay at home" thing. Oh, and she's the blogger.

J is the big boy. Born October 11 2002, he is in kindergarten and loves it. Now 6 years old, and too smart for his own good. Talks a lot but extremely entertaining.

C is the little boy. Born June 26, 2006, he went through a lot in his first year but is doing just fine now. The only blond in the family, so his paternity is routinely questioned by rude strangers.

V is our baby girl. She is brand new and arrived in January 2009. So far everything is going well. We're thrilled to have added the final piece to our family puzzle. And yes, she WILL be the final piece!
