I’ve reached the point in pregnancy (29 weeks) when I see my OB doctor every other week and I had an appointment today. I’m not feeling well due to seasonal allergies and I had also prepared myself for a weight gain (considering my recent trip to Kentucky included vegan chocolate cake, Mom’s home-cooking, and very little exercise). But I was pleasantly surprised that I had lost another two pounds. While my OB is pleased with my weight loss, and my belly is measuring fine, she was worried about Baby K’s size and did a growth scan (ultrasound).
Turns out, Baby K is a chunky monkey! He currently weighs 3 pounds and 3 ounces, in the 65% percentile at 29 weeks. There’s nothing wrong with this kid!!!!!
Remember in yesterday’s post I told you that Baby K (a.k.a. Chunky Monkey) didn’t like my allergies and would kick every time I coughed or sneezed? Well, now I have photographic evidence of my Future Olympic Kick Boxer. In the sonogram photo above, both of his hands are balled into fists and tucked beneath his chin. You can also see his eyes, nose, and mouth.
At least he’s a cute Chunky Monkey, right?!
