Ultrasound photos - 32 weeks 4 days

Here are some photos from our most recent ultrasound, which we had on 20th Feb 07. It's not routine to have an ultrasound at this stage, but we needed to check if my placenta had moved up and out of the way, as it was looking a bit low at the last scan, and may have meant an automatic caesarian section at 38weeks.

As it turns out, my placenta has moved up, so I'm all set to attempt a natural birth.

Bean, it turns out, is a beautiful big healthy bubba ... the measurements for head circumference, abdominal circumference and femur length are all above the 98th percentile, and the estimated weight is off the charts. At this stage, at 32 weeks old, Bean is estimated to weight 3.0kgs!!!
