36 week ultrasound

We had our 36 week checkup and ultrasound today. The baby is about 5 and 1/2 pounds and may gain another 1/2 pound per week until birth which should put her somewhere around 7 and a half pounds. She’s about a pound below average, but my belly is measuring on track so it’s possible the ultrasound measurement is off. We also got confirmation that she is indeed a girl.

We met with the delivery doctor, who informed us that he may or may not be there when I go into labor depending on if he’s at a cubs game or not.  He’s lucky we’re fairly laid back considering a comment like that could send some couples into a panic. But, we don’t really care who’s attending the delivery as long as they have experience and a degree and can get the three of us through the whole ordeal in one piece. I don’t think any of us should suffer unnecessarily and I view the details along the way as purely circumstantial based on comfort and health of me and the baby at any given point.  And, that’s the extent of our birth plan.
