We had our 36 week ultrasound this morning to do a BPP and growth check on Pedro. His vitals all look good, his heart-to-chest-cavity ratio is holding steady (which is better than getting worse), and they calculated his weight estimate at about six pounds! The pregnancy websites compare him to a honeydew melon or some other kind of melon…I don’t even like orange and green melons. Plus, it was cute for a little while, but comparing my baby to produce is obviously propaganda to get starving pregnant women to eat healthy or something. Like that’s important?!?
(Okay, so I really know that it is essential and I do like many other produce items.)
Still, how much more fun is it to compare Pedrito’s weight to something more practical. Something that can be obtained quickly in all it’s delicious goodness, and delivered by people in funny hats no less. That’s right, weighing in at 6 lbs. makes Pedro about the same poundage as 8.5 Double-Doubles!
P.S. In all honesty, I’ve never actually eaten a double-double. I’m a regular cheeseburger girl. But adding up his weight in weeny little cheeseburgers would be ridiculous…
