It's official....

After Tuesday's follow up ultrasound to measure growth and my regular doc appt yesterday, it appears that Baby K will grace us with his beautiful presence Tues, Feb 10, around 9 a.m. via c-section. He will be delivered by our amazing doctor, Dr. R, who I completely trust with both of our health.

Tuesday's ultrasound was precautionary. It definitely seems that Baby K will be on the smaller side. His head is measuring in the 19th percentile, his legs are measuring in the 22nd percentile, and his abdomen is measuring in at 26th percentile. Dr. R says that although he will be "small" he will appear to be a little chunky :) This makes mom and dad really happy.... I was so worried he was going to be "preemie" small. We found out that he is estimated to weigh right at 6lbs right now. Dr. R said he could realistically make me wait another week since I am due Feb 17. However, for nutritional reasons it is best he come early.

Thank you all for your comments on our photo's. I was somewhat hesitant to post them. I want to be sensitive to all of your feelings. I know so many of you are still waiting on your miracles, and I hope you know that I pray every day that your time is drawing near.
