I had a scan to estimate fetal size this morning – 7 lbs, 7 oz at only 37 weeks!  Yes, I know the estimates can be off a pound in either direction, but since a scan of Anya at the same gestation showed her to be the same size, and her birth weight confirmed that the estimate was probably right, I’m thinking Baby Girl is going to be another porker.  It just doesn’t seem fair.  How does 5’1″, 97 lbs pre-pregnancy me end up with such large babies?  I want to go into labor NOW.  I’m been trying some of the old wives’ suggestions for triggering labor, but let’s be honest, they don’t work.  Babies come when they are ready.  So maybe I just need to plead and beg with Baby Girl?  What if I promise you a pony, kid?  Will you come out, then?

    LOL, yeah they told me Elliot was probably between 7 and 8 lbs too.
    He was 9 lbs 11 oz.
    So much for their estimates! Hopefully they’ll be off in the other direction for you!

    Erica – I’m trying, I really am. I just can’t help thinking with every day that passes that now there’s another ounce or two I’ll have to contend with when she’s born.

    Saina – Thanks! The waiting on top of feeling like I’m going to explode make these last few weeks very trying.

    Amnesty – I’m going to pretend I didn’t read that!
