“Did she just say — did I just read — what??”
You read me correctly! BabyBug officially weighs FIVE POUNDS as of last night. To be more precise, she weighs 5 lbs 0.6 oz.
Of course, this afternoon BabyCenter’s “My Pregnancy” app (which we haven’t yet disabled) notified us that our baby is now at 38 weeks, and “has really plumped up. He or she weighs about 6.8 pounds and is over 19 1/2 inches long.” Way to be a wet blanket, BabyCenter! We’re very proud of Leah for fattening up to 5 lbs. Her little chicken legs are starting to turn into baby thighs and her cheeks get more squishy by the day. That’s the best we could ask for right now!
