Size of baby: Supposedly baby weighs 6 1/3 pounds and measured a bit over 19 inches long. I'd like to think he is weighing it at a solid 8.
Development: Baby's lungs are most likely mature enough, that if he were to be born now, he'd fully adjust to life outside of the womb. Holler. He also is supposed to have a pretty firm grasp... which I believe since he's been tugging at my hip bone for a solid couple months.
Feeling: Actually... pretty good. I really can't complain too much. I haven't had heart burn once this whole pregnancy, and for that I am thankful!
Sleeping: Non existent still. The couch is my new best friend... I can get a good couple hours of sleep there. Inevitably my hips/back start aching there though too.
Movement: This little man is still quite active. Uncomfortably active at times. Mostly by my hip bones??
Brody likes for me to "carry him" when he is falling asleep in his bed. He rests his head on my belly and the baby usually shoves his butt against Brody's head. I like to think they're bonding.
Name: I think we may have it figured out. Crazy right!? However, we are going to keep it under wraps for now - I'm not into hearing people's opinions about it and how they might not like it. We like it, so that's all that counts!
Looking forward to: Holding this little peanut in my arms.
Fun facts: I went in to my doctors appointment last week to see if I was progressing at all.
Luckily I had very low expectations, because I was dilated to a big ol' ZERO!
I have another appointment tomorrow... my prediction... zero again.
Feel free to cast your baby prediction in the comments.
Do you know what's more uncomfortable than being 35 weeks pregnant?
Being SICK while 35 weeks pregnant.
Yup, we're sick again.
I'm just hoping we get our fill of sick days for the year before little Mr. Fetus makes his arrival!
Size of baby: He is over 18 inches long and tips the scales at 5.25 pounds.
Development: His kidney's are fully developed now, and his liver can process some waste products. Basic physical development is now complete. His main job over the next few weeks is to put on weight.
Name: You'd think we would have chosen a name by now... but you'd be mistaken. We like to live on the edge apparently, and name our child at the last minute. Aren't we daring!?
Feeling: Well since I'm sick at the moment, not so hot. Blah.
Sleeping: Nope. I had to get up to use the restroom FIVE times last night. And with Brody coughing quite a bit and checking on him, this momma's not getting her much needed REM sleep.
Movement: Yup. He is running out of space, so he's not quite as somer-saulty as he used to be, but he sure likes to stretch out and push quite hard on my belly. He's a strong one, that's for sure!
Looking forward to: Sleeping on my stomach!!!!
Fun facts: The same thing happened to Brody, but this little babe has been popping. Yes, his joints make an audible pop in belly every now and then. Since it happened last time, and is supposedly normal, I'm not nearly as freaked out. But it is still strange.
Now, onto cuter things than my big ol' belly.
Brody is 26 months now... or as I like to say... 2.
