Belly update!


32 weeks 1 day knocked up!

Sunday, November 29, 2009

Baby's now the size of a squash!
Ready or not, baby's getting ready to emerge. She's probably in the head-down position by now, with her bottom facing up. This is the comfiest way for her body to fit in your increasingly cramped womb and will make her eventual exit (only a few months away now!) much easier. (If she's still head-up, don't panic -- there's still time for a flip before birth.)




How far along? 32 weeks!!!
Total weight gain: Down 6 lbs. I gained a pound!!!
Maternity clothes? Indeed!
Sleep: still up nightly to pee :o)
Best moment this week: growth ultrasound our little girl is getting big quick! 4lbs 7 oz (1lb bigger than average)
Movement: yes! The war on my hips and ribs continues.
Gender: little Girl!!!
Labor Signs: Nope!!!
Belly Button in or out? In.
What I miss: sleeping all night and on my stomach.
What I am looking forward to: another uneventful week and getting a massage.
Weekly Wisdom: do not over do! one day of overdoing will hurt for a week!
Milestones: The doctor said it would be good for Avery to come a week or two early!

Baby's now the size of a squash!
Baby's going through major brain and nerve development these days. His irises now react to light, and all five senses are in working order. (He won't pick up anything from his nose until after birth, though -- smell is transferred through air, not amniotic fluid.)




How far along? 31 weeks!!!
Total weight gain: Down 7lbs still.
Maternity clothes? Indeed!
Sleep: still up nightly to pee :o)
Best moment this week: My baby shower. I cannot believe how loved she is. We got tons of our big items and lots of other useful items.
Movement: yes! she has declared war on my hips and ribs.
Gender: little Girl!!!
Labor Signs: Nope!!!
Belly Button in or out? In.
What I miss: sleeping all night and on my stomach.
What I am looking forward to: growth u/s tomorrow afternoon.
Weekly Wisdom: somehow it will all get done.
Milestones: we could have a baby in the next 7 weeks. holy shit!!!!!!!!!!

Baby's now the size of a squash!
Baby's energy is surging, thanks to white fat depositing beneath his skin. And since he's growing so fast (weight will triple by birth), things are getting kind of cramped in the womb. What all this means for you: Get ready for some more kicks and jabs to the ribs.






How far along? 29 weeks. Holy Crap!
Total weight gain: Hoping I gained a few pounds...we will find out on Thursday.
Maternity clothes? yes, however, I am still wearing a lot of my prepregnancy tops but they are starting to get kind of short :o)
Sleep: not so great. I have been getting up at least once a night to pee.
Best moment this week: The dresser is in!!! All we have left are the final accessories!!
Movement: yep it is now visible!!!
Gender: little Girl!!!
Labor Signs: Nope!!!
Belly Button in or out? In.
What I miss: DH drank a beer last night and I almost made out with him just for the taste.
What I am looking forward to: my shower next Sunday!!
Weekly Wisdom: even though her head is in the 95th percentile the rest of her body might catch up.
Milestones: Her estimated wight is 3lbs!

Brockly taking care of Avery's nursery!

Baby's now the size of an eggplant!
Baby's lungs are mature enough that, if born right now, she has a pretty good chance of surviving (with help from medical technology). Her skin is still pretty wrinkly (one byproduct of living in amniotic fluid) but will smoothen as fat continues to deposit.




How far along? 28 weeks.
Total weight gain: I lost another 3 pounds so I am down 7 pounds from prepregnancy weight.
Maternity clothes? yes, however, I am still wearing a lot of my prepregnancy tops :o)
Sleep: not so great. I have been getting up at least once a night to pee. Avery likes to wake up about then and then have a little party in my ute :o)
Best moment this week: We are almost finished with the nursery!!! We are now just waiting for BRU to call and let us know our dresser is in. :o)
Movement: yes.
Gender: little Girl!!!
Labor Signs: Not at all.
Belly Button in or out? In.
What I miss: my winter coat. It no longer fits:o( I have been wearing DH's old hunting coats.
What I am looking forward to: Growth scan in the next week or so, I can't wait to see her again.
Weekly Wisdom: Be thankful for all the help you get. We have had so many wonderful gifts for Avery from family and friends who are excited to meet her.
Milestones: 3rd Trimester!!!!!!!!!
