Here ye, hear ye! We've reached the half way point! That's right, Cooper is officially half way baked! All is still well and we're praying that it stays that way. We have our big ultrasound on Thursday where the doctor will measure all of his parts to make sure that he is growing normally and confirm that we are working with the correct due date. I'll update then with pictures of our growing baby boy!
Onto the update from BabyCenter.com:
"Your baby weighs about 10 1/2 ounces now. He's also around 6 1/2 inches long from head to bottom and about 10 inches from head to heel — the length of a banana. (For the first 20 weeks, when a baby's legs are curled up against his torso and hard to measure, measurements are taken from the top of his head to his bottom — the "crown to rump" measurement. After 20 weeks, he's measured from head to toe.)
He's swallowing more these days, which is good practice for his digestive system. He's also producing meconium, a black, sticky by-product of digestion. This gooey substance will accumulate in his bowels, and you'll see it in his first soiled diaper (some babies pass meconium in the womb or during delivery)."
I continue to feel him move all the time and it still shocks me every now and then. I pray that the second half of this pregnancy goes by as quickly as the first half because I absolutely cannot wait to hold him in my arms.
Until then, keep on growing Coop! Your Daddy and I love you!
