Your baby now weighs about 4 3/4 pounds (about the size of a cantaloupe) and is almost 18 inches long. His fat layers — which will help regulate his body temperature once he's born — are filling her out, making him rounder. His skin is also smoother than ever. His central nervous system is maturing and his lungs are continuing to mature as well. If you've been nervous about preterm labor, you'll be happy to know that babies born between 34 and 37 weeks who have no other health problems generally do fine. They may need a short stay in the neonatal nursery and may have a few short-term health issues, but in the long run, they usually do as well as full-term babies.
I’m going to guess about 34
The weather has temporarily cooled down, yay! I’m still dealing with lots of leg/ankle swelling which I’m sure I will deal with until the end now. I have been SUPER tired, but I have an almost three year old to thank for that plus pregnancy insomnia. Oh, and tons of heartburn too, the norm.
Chicken is still not my thing, not gag worthy but I never crave it.
Nothing in particular although Taco Time has been my lunch go-to, I could seriously eat a taco salad every day.
Two weeks have passed since my last sleep update and Audrina is still waking up every single night. We have her wakeup(s) down to about an hour now which is so much better than three. On top of her wakeups, I can’t seem to get comfortable anymore. I gave in the last two nights and took Unisom which helped tremendously.
Looking Forward To…
Tonight kicks off my husband’s home festival, it lasts all weekend with tons of rides and food. His mom helps put the festival together so we always get special treatment. I’m excited to take Audrina to the parade tonight, we’ve gone every year but I think this year is the first time she will really appreciate it. Also, she LOVES rides now so I’m glad she will get to go on some fun ones.
Any Baby/Pregnancy-Related Purchases?
We purchased a name decal for behind baby boy’s crib. Yes, ‘baby boy’ has a name now, we decided on Brody. We aren’t sure about the middle name yet.
Belly Button In Or Out?
Still feeling good, I can’t believe I’m less than a month away from meeting my little man. I know as time gets closer I will be way more emotional about Audrina not being my only baby anymore. In the meantime, I’m trying to get as much quality time with her as possible.
Lots, the movement has changed though to slow rolls instead of crazy kicks. I think he’s running out of room.
