I had my 38 week checkup yesterday, and as usual they checked my weight, blood pressure and urine, and the doctor gave me an internal exam and did a scan of my bump.
He was pleased to announce that baby boy now weighs 3006grams... wow! And that his weight is completely normal for a 38 week 2 day old fetus! YAY! According to babycentre.com, an average 38 week old fetus measures / weighs;
|38 weeks||19.61 inches||6.80 pounds||49.8 cm||3083 grams|
He also told me that there are no visible signs that I will go into labor anytime soon... hmmmm...
Recently it has been hard for the doctor to get a good picture of the baby (from the scan) because he is just too big and moves around too much. But yesterday he managed to snap a picture of bub`s fist, as he tried to punch me... cute! (a bit hard to see, sorry)...
