If you follow me on Twitter, then you heard the news that Baby JJ could possibly be here two weeks early. I went to my OB for an ultrasound and to talk about my sugar test as well as my severely low blood count on Monday. Well, during the ultrasound appointment the tech pointed out that JJ was two weeks more developed than 86% of babies his gestational age. She estimated according to ultrasound measurements that he’s already almost five pounds!!! That is crazy.
Can you imagine how much bigger he’s going to get these last two months? I mean that’s when babies really start to put on their final pounds. So, let’s say he puts on two pounds in April and then another two pounds in May. I’m looking at trying to push out an almost ten pound baby folks!!! And then think about the carrying around. My arms are going to beyond tired.
Guess, I better start carrying around and cradling a ten pound bag of sugar to get used to what my baby is going to feel like. With Moo, I at least had two weeks before she hit the ten pound mark. JJ is going to come out weighing ten pounds or close to it which means in two weeks he’ll weigh 12 pounds or more. Since, I’m breast feeding, he’ll pack on more weight than a formula feed baby in a faster time period.
Anyways, to the hubby and I decided that we needed to go ahead and get a move on getting the rest of the stuff we needed. So, this morning I got surprised with breakfast complete with fresh orange juice. I was glad that I didn’t have to cook. And then I enjoyed a nice hot shower minus Moo for a change. She usually throws a fit if she hears the water running and she’s not in there showering with Moo. She thinks the shower is some kind of magic rain cloud. LOL
After we were all dressed and ready to go, we headed out to do some shopping. Since my family is taking care of the clothes and toys, we tackled the big items and here are some of the steals we got today:
We got the Graco Kinsey DuoGlider Stroller from Target for $139.99. That’s a whole $10 cheaper than Babies ‘R Us. Needless to say I have scratched this off our registry with them.
