Today is Hugo’s due date. Of course babies aren’t ever strictly due to arrive on one particular date but it does help to have a focus for the end of pregnancy. And of course my babies don’t fancy coming anywhere near their due date!
Hugo had his first visit with the paediatrician today. She was very happy with his progress since discharge. Hugo had a full physical examination during which he voiced his displeasure. The doctor was very pleased with his current weight pointing out that he is the size of an average newborn at 3.38kg (7lb 7oz) at his due date.
The plan for feeding is to replace a bottle feed overnight with a breast feed and see what his weight does in 2 weeks. Here’s hoping that it goes well from tonight.
We are so blessed that Hugo has been home for close to 4 weeks with us and we have been getting to know him even though he should have still been inside.
