Let’s Hope the Machine is Wrong

Had an obstetrician appointment today. Everything was fine, my blood pressure, urine specimen, weight gain and so on. All the usual suspects they check out. Dr B. gave me an abdominal palp and said that I was measuring at about 30 – 32 weeks, and his guess that by due date Heshe would be around 7 pounds. I thought that sounded like quite a nice size.

Then we had an ultrasound.

The measurements said by birth date expect an 8 or 9 pounder. Like I said; let’s hope the machine is wrong. Dr B. tried to reassure us by saying that I am carrying a baby that is going to be that big amazingly well – as in I really don’t look that big. Please, please let Dr. B be right.
