5 Weeks to go!
Your baby doesn’t have much room to maneuver now that he’s over 18 inches long and tips the scales at 5 1/4 pounds (pick up a honeydew melon). Because it’s so snug in your womb, he isn’t likely to be doing somersaults anymore, but the number of times he kicks should remain about the same. His kidneys are fully developed now, and his liver can process some waste products. Most of his basic physical development is now complete — he’ll spend the next few weeks putting on weight.
5 Weeks and my little man will be here. I just can’t believe it’s all happening so fast!! I had my doctor’s appointment this morning and everything went well. It was pretty easy and normal pretty much like always. I got to hear his heartbeat again of course. Except it took her forever to find it because he was moving around so much! Apparently everything is right on track according to when my due date is. He’s flipped but his head is still high. Which is good because I CANNOT have him in NY. B would kill me!
I talked to the doctor about traveling to NY and in case you didn’t catch it earlier she said it was perfectly fine! Hence the reason why I’m already in NY. She said the only thing I should be concerned about was blood clots so I should stop every 2 hours and walk around for 2 hours. I didn’t do that…oops I stopped once at my three hour mark and walked around for like 5 minutes? I know I know I should have listened to the doctor but I was making sure that I was moving my legs and adjusting while I was driving and I was fine, not nearly as uncomfortable as I expected to be. I got to NY at like 9:30 which wasn’t so bad considering there was traffic.
VA is currently having there biggest Snow Storm since the Blizzard of 96′. Do any of you remember the Blizzard of 96′? I do it was crazy here in NY!
B says there is already a foot of snow on the ground and it’s still going strong. The craziest part is that it’s suppose to snow the worst from 1am to 3pm on Saturday so they should be getting another foot OR MORE! Never thought I would say that about Virginia. It kinda makes me sad that I’m not there. I would have loved to have gotten snowed in with B this weekend!
Okay back to pregnancy stuff since this is my offical weekly update. Everything is still going good. I would say my only complaint now is that I’m having a hard time sleeping. B usually goes to bed later than me and EVERY time he gets into bed I wake up. EVERY time he rolls over I wake up. It’s horrible. And I always wake up having to pee. But I only get up once. I just refuse to get out of my warm bed multiple times just to use the bathroom. So I usually just try to ignore the urge lol. These next 5 weeks are going to fly by especially since by the time I go back to VA I’ll be 37 weeks! I might try and go back earlier though because I think that’s a little to close to my due date to still be in NY. Like I said earlier if B ends up missing Bean’s arrival because I’m in NY he’ll never forgive me. And I don’t blame him!!!
I’ll post pictures tomorrow and I have updates on the nursery to come!
