Say Cheese

We went to see the Perinatologist again today to check my low-lying placenta. Thankfully, although it is still low, it has moved far enough away from my cervix that they pronounced me "in the clear." Whew.

We got some new pictures. They aren't as good as the ones we have of Megan, but are cute nonetheless. Partially that's because Megan's pictures (which are below Spidey's) were taken at 30 weeks, and then again at 36w1d whereas Spidey's today was at 26w1d. Also, it's because he just wasn't feeling photogenic and therefore wasn't as cooperative as Megan proved to be.

Here is a picture of his face:

And, in a feat you will never see an adult pull off (except, perhaps, in Cirque Du Soleil), here he is in an exaggerated punt. That's his leg on the left side (foot on top), the umbilical cord in between, and then his head on the right. Really, all I can think to say is "ow." Nothing about this picture looks comfortable...
For comparison's sake, here is a picture of Megan at 30 weeks. For those of you that have met me in person, you'll probably recognize that face since she is the spitting image of me (and already was in 30w in the womb!).

Lastly, here is just a nice picture of Megan at 36w1d. No less than 3 of the OBs at my doctor's office were convinced she was HUGE and there was no way they should let me go to term. They were worried that she was getting too big and that she'd get stuck, or I'd need a c-section or other stuff like that. They sent me to the Perinatologist who proclaimed her over 7 lbs at 36 weeks gestation. This put her on track for a birthweight of 9 lbs or more. So, how much did she weigh at birth, you ask? A whopping 6 lbs 15 ozs. Just goes to show you that sonograms are much more of an art than a science. Anyway, here is the picture:

Those 3D pictures are amazing! I guess we start losing our flexibly from well before birth.
