Okay, so last night watching 19 kids and counting really put things into perspective for me/us. At 47 days old sweet baby Josie was weighing in at 2lbs 3.5oz. Very tiny! Mason, as of last Thursday was showing to be 3lbs 10oz. He has already surpassed her weight. It's amazing to me that I have a baby growing inside my belly bigger than the one I was watching on TV.

Last week at my appt my sono tech and the dr I saw that day both made a comment that Mason was measuring in a little big for his gestational period. Dr Sarmini also mentioned that I may be a little further along. This morning I was browsing The Bump and saw this:

How big is baby?

Your Baby: Month 7

Baby’s energy is surging, thanks to the formation of white fat deposits beneath the skin. (Have those kicks and jabs to the ribs tipped you off yet?) Baby is also settling into sleep and waking cycles, though -- as you’ve also probably noticed -- they don’t necessarily coincide with your own. Also this month, all five senses are finally functional, and the brain and nervous system are going through major developments.

It says here that the average size from 29 to 32 weeks is 2.5 to 3.8lbs. I haven't even reached 32 weeks yet and at 31 weeks Mason measured to be 3lbs 10oz. WOW!!!! Also, I can tell that he's getting bigger because his kicks are getting stronger, and they're getting higher up in my belly. Also, his movements are more profound/strong. It's amazing, that's for sure!!!

I am very interested to see my Dr this Thursday. Thank God he's back in town!
