I saw the doctor yesterday. She weighed me, measured me, listened to Baby's heartbeat, and we talked about the ultrasound results. She told me right now Baby is in the 59th percentile. So, he's about average size. If he continues on this way, he'll be about 7-pounds-9-ounces at birth. Not bad. That doesn't sound huge, nor does it sound tiny.

I like the idea of average when it comes to my baby. I certainly don't want to make the news because my baby is humongous. But I don't want him to be so tiny that he has health problems either. So that 59th percentile sounded pretty good to me.

*Percentile - a value on a scale of one hundred that indicates the percent of a distribution that is equal to or below it
