His head is how BIG???

Yes, that's right we will be having another baby with a big melon!! It must be all the brains in there! I went to the doctor today instead of next week because she was concerned that I have actually been losing weight!! Strange when your almost 8 months pregnant and you are losing it instead of gaining it!

So they did an ultrasound to check on the size of the baby and to make sure I have enough amniotic fluid. The good news is that everything is fine...the bad news is (at least for me) he is measuring 2 weeks ahead and his head is 3 weeks ahead (bad news)!! Gee, thanks doc for letting me know that! So they want me to have another ultrasound at about 36 weeks. I am 31 weeks right now...the baby is measuring 33 weeks! She also said he has an estimated weight of 4lbs 9 oz right now and I have only gained 9lbs total! So half of my weight is just baby!!! SCARY!

So please pray for me and that I don't go late and have a big baby with an enormous head!! Ha Ha, I know you all think it is funny, but your not the one that has to push him out!!

Other news in the Heiden house is Matthew is now in a big boy bed!! I think it was harder for me than it was for him. He has done amazing! He actually stays in it and even calls for me in the morning when he wakes up!! Although, yesterday he knocked on his door and called for me instead of just coming out!! He is such a goofball. He will even stay in his bed for a time out!! Which is unbelievable for a kid that won't sit for 2 seconds at the dinner table.

Anyhow, hope you are all doing well.

Please pray for me and my big headed baby!! =)

Between your kid's fat head and our kid just being...well...larger, one has to wonder what you ladies are feeding our children!

Oh sure, you men always blame us for everything!!

Just trying to deflect the reality that we are the ones at fault.

WE MISS YOU! I had my haircut by the stylist from HELL! Apparently I had NO IDEA what my hair should look like. WHEN CAN YOU MOVE DOWN HERE!!!!!!!

Sarah said...

The question is when are you moving back here? I'm sorry you got a bad haircut. i wish I could fix it for you! I thought you did your own?

No, no, no, I'm not that talented...pity us...we are experiencing "winter", which stinks when you just started baseball season.
