Our Little Monkey's Checkup

We had (another) checkup on our little guy this morning. He is looking good and growing well. He now weighs approx. 4 pounds 5 oz and has once again flipped into the breech position with his cute bum down. We are now 33 weeks and our perinatologist said that he would give the baby three weeks to turn before they try to turn him manually.
He also did a test to see if I would be delivering in the next two weeks (I will spare you the details of how THAT is done) and we should have the results tomorrow.
Have I ever mentioned how much I love my doctors?!
So, apparently we produce monkeys instead of little boys! If you look closely at this ultrasound picture of his head you can see the spikey stuff coming off the top of his head . . . IS HAIR! :)And here is a profile shot with his arm draped over his face. SO dramatic!

I'm so glad he's got hair! Woo hoo! I can't wait to see him! Well, I can wait - a month or so. :) I love your doctors, too.

lindsay, how exciting! i'm glad everything is going well. levi was breech and had to be turned manually. and it worked! hopefully your little boy will turn, but if not, its totally worth it to have them try to turn him! good luck with everything!:)

Yeah for little monkey boys! That soft feathery hair is the best thing in the world. :)
