Well, I had my ultrasound on Monday after my doctor's concern that my belly was measuring slightly smaller than normal, and I'm happy to report that everything is A-okay with Baby Lump. I guess I must just hide it well, huh?

So Lump is estimated to currently weigh 5 pounds (though I think it's hilarious that there is apparently a 13 oz. margin of error when determining weight via ultrasound). (Raising a glass of sparkling cider) Here's to hoping he/she doesn't have some crazy ridiculous growth spurt in the next several weeks before birth!
What's also cool is the ultrasound technician was able to tell for sure that the baby's head is down, which means Baby Lump is starting to gear up for a (hopefully) smooth landing. Apparently it's highly unlikely the baby's position will change at this point, so it looks as though I won't have to worry about Baby Lump being in a breech position. Hurrah!
In other news, I wouldn't be surprised if Baby Lump gained a whole pound of weight from my cake consumption alone today. My wonderful colleagues at the Office of New Media at BU threw me an awesome little baby party today, where they all wished me "Happy Baby!" (Because, seriously, what else are you supposed to say at baby parties?) Check out the cake they got me - definitely not a Cake Wreck, that's for sure! Special thanks go to my boss, Pam, who made all of the arrangements for the little shindig. I had a great time!
