Oh, cool. This got bumped (pun intended) on a big day for me. 33 weeks, 3 days, and just had my first major ultrasound in a month (the kind where they measure just about everything). Having regular nonstress tests and biophysical profiles, too.

Little one...has gotten freaking huge. He had a very normal estimated fetal weight and abdominal circumference at the standard 20 week ultrasound (right around 50th percentile for both back then), but now he's at 99> percentile for abdominal circumference. He's estimated to be 5 pounds and 9 ounces already, which is bigger than I was at my own full-term birth (5 pounds and 6 ounces).

I was 5'2" and a little over 120 pounds prior to pregnancy, and I've gained 29 total pounds...nothing too substantial. Husband is 5'9" and 130 pounds. I have no idea how we're thus on pace to produce about a 9 pound baby. I do have the rare type 1 form of diabetes, but my sugars have been really good throughout pregnancy, so theoretically I shouldn't have one of those big diabetic babies. But here he is.

Just saying, but my mom was 5' and maybe 110 before she was pregnant with me. My dad was just 5'8. And I was a 9lb 2oz baby.

Yeah you got a big one. My gf has gestational diabetes too, trying to avoid the big baby ourselves. Glad everything has been good so far for ya.

36 weeks today! Husband took me to see the new Matrix movie, and I almost fainted about halfway in. I think it was dehydration though because I felt better when I drank more water. Baby is still active and doing well.

Have to say...baby is going to come at just about the right time. I won't have to sit in front of the Thunder/Cavs stream, pondering who's worse between Kevin Pangos or Theo Maledon, in this era of COVID basketball. :)

Well guys, unfortunately I have cholestasis, so...instead of having the baby by C-section on January 18, he needs to be delivered tomorrow.

Wish me and the baby well!

Sorry to hear, best of luck! My wife is due in March and I’ve enjoyed following your updates. Hoping everything goes well tomorrow.
