Jack update

I had an ultrasound this afternoon, and wanted to post a quick update.

Fatty McFat Fetus is still a chunky guy, but he's leaned out a little since my 34 week ultrasound. He is now estimated to be between 7.5 and 8 lbs. His head is still in the 99th percentile...hurray? The surprising thing is that his legs are really short which must come from Troy's side of the family, cause in my family we're really long-legged!

She said with all his measurements, he's measuring about 2-3 days behind, which would put my due date around April 4th. We shall see!

The good news is that he's head down with his face towards my back. This is such great news because it avoids the "sunny-side up" position that causes a lot of back labor that causes a ton of unnecessary pain.
