Wowie!!!!!! We have five weeks until the baby’s due date. Crazy crazy crazy times!
I still remember when AM and I found out I was pregnant…30 weeks ago. So much has changed, so much has opened up for us. It’s truly a wondrous thing.
So apparently that baby will stay the length he is, which is the size of a pineapple/butternut squash/acorn squash/bunch of carrots (oh these fruit and veggie sizes are all over the place!) but should be gaining a pound or two before birth.
The baby continues to do well! In fact, during my third NST test (which I must get every week since my age qualifies me as high risk) the tech continued to marvel at how well the baby moves, the incredible jumps in his heart rate. I don’t fully understand it when she says “this is the best reading I’m going to get all day!” (she’s said that the last two times I’ve been there) and when I asked her what that meant she just said the baby was really happy in there (??) and would be going to Harvard or Yale eventually. Still don’t know what that means, but I guess it’s a good thing and I’ll take it!
AM and I are continuing to get our place ready. And we ordered the first set of diapers!!! We also did the last bit of traveling we are planning to do until the baby’s arrival, to our baby shower in NJ. Check out some of the pics:
We are also kinda/nearly/maybe? close to getting the apartment fully prepped. I’ve encouraged AM to hold off on pulling open that dreaded closet and cleaning it out. As soon as it opens, it’s game over!
The other thing we’ve done is find a doula we want to work with. We are really excited about who we have selected, and hopefully the delivery will work with her schedule. Other than that, I’m treating these next five weeks like I’m training for a marathon. Meaning: I’m continuing to work out 4 days weekly, doing my other prenatal exercises, drinking a ton of water, and working on eating healthy foods. Cos I know when it’s baby time it’s not going to feel like nothing!
Ok, onward to week 36! (OMG, and only 4 weeks until his arrival!)
