Big girl

I'm still in the parking lot at the hospital after my sonogram and just had to share what I just learned--Y'all, brace yourselves.

She weighs 7 lb 12 oz.

I'm only 36 weeks! Biggest baby ever making her debut in two weeks...get those boys from the guiness book of world records ready. The tumor is smaller than it was in proportion...probably because she has grown so much in a week. All things are stable!

Okay- remember that they misestimate all the time!!!! She will not be mammoth, right????

Mama Em said...

p.s. Yea for smaller tumor!!!

Woo Hoo! Good news about the tumor. I can relate...Brody measured over 7 lbs. at 36 weeks! The sono lady thought I was full term. She had to take a double take on my chart! 10 lbs. 2 oz. wasn't that bad...

It makes me think of how Trevor pretends to lift heavy things and say "big strong".... that seems to describe Joy..big, and clearly strong already. Yay for a smaller tumor! 2 weeks...incredible!

Matt, Joy and Ryder said...

Yay!! I am so glad things are still stable. Um, Ryder didn't weigh that much when he was born, LOL! A Big Baby is a Happy Baby, right?!!
