A little longer…

A little longer...Just last week it finally dawned on me – there’s only about a month left until Baby Kern will arrive. Where has the time gone? Needless to say we’ve reached the point of this pregnancy where we are beginning to get a bit nervous, anxious, and excited. With about 4 1/2 weeks remaining, we found ourselves at one of our last appointments before the baby arrives today to see Baby Kern again one last time before his birthday. They decided to do another ultrasound this morning to check on the size of the baby and he seems to be growing rapidly. According to the ultrasound tech right now he’s approximately 6 pounds 2 ounces. The doctor reminded us that babies generally gain about 1/2 a pound a week during the last month until they are born, so you do the math – he’s more than likely going to be larger than Hope (she was only 6 pounds 7 ounces). During the ultrasound the tech noted that he wasn’t sucking his thumb, which is a first out of all the ultrasounds we’ve seen clearly. So she switched over to the 4D ultrasound and took some amazing shots of him resting. Check out more of the photos taken in our flickr account.

I guess we’ll just have to await a few more weeks patiently to finally meet Baby Kern. Only a little longer!
