Part A Does Not Fit Through Slot B

The sonogram (at 36 weeks and 5 days) estimates the baby's weight at 8 pounds and 4 ounces!
That's WAY OVER the 90th percentile. WAY OVER. Holy crap.

My blood pressure was high (which has never happened before) and my weight, which hasn't changed in weeks, was up since last week by 8 POUNDS!!! I will get checked for protien (which would mean preeclampsia) this afternoon. Hopefully, that will be negative. Otherwise, it's probably off to the hospital tonight for monitoring.

At my OB appointment today, we'll talk about induction. High risk doctor says no more than a week or two left, at the very most. Alan says Friday. :) Either way, the baby passed the biophysical profile with an 8 out of 8, so that's good.

I wouldn't put to much stock into the sonogram weights. They told me all along that Mr. Toby was in the 90 - 95th percentile. The day before he was born they said he weighed 8lb 5oz and the day he was born the level 2 sonogram said 8lb 15 oz. He actually weighed 7lb 8oz.
