At less than two months to go, she weighs in at about 4.2 pounds to 5.8 pounds and measures about 17.2 to 18.7 inches. She’s recognizing and reacting to simple songs, if you’re singing them. (If you’re not, start! She may find them soothing after birth.) She’s also urinating about a pint a day.
She’s about 17.2 to 18.7 inches. From here on out, she won’t get much longer, but she’s plumping up. She’s now about 4.2 to 5.8 pounds, and she’ll put on a pound or more of baby fat before birth. Now, her hearing is fully developed, and she responds best to high-pitched noises.
How Far Along: 35 Weeks
Days Left: 35!!!
Due Date: March 13th, 2013
Boy or girl: Baby Girl <3
Currently craving: Italian Pasta Salad (again)
Currently Avoiding: I can never seem to finish any meat that are in my dishes!
Weight: Don’t ask, don’t tell.
Belly button status: In!
Sleep grade: I am having a hard time falling asleep but it’s not so awful!
Recent Crazy Dream: Nothing that I can remember right now!
Evidence of pregnancy brain: B was frying some wings for Superbowl Sunday and he asked me to take the last batch out so I did. But I wasn’t sure if he had other stuff to fry and I figured he’d go back in and check everything out AND I had planned on telling him that I left it on. Except I didn’t and HOURS later I realized it was still on. Good thing I was home and no fire started! I would have cried trying to figure out what to do. At least I know not to throw water on it right? Been there. Done that.
Symptoms?: Heartburn, sciatic nerve pain (I need to make an appointment with my Chrio) and the need to use the potty A LOT!
Health/Appointments: I didn’t have an appointment last week only my shot but I did have an appointment today! I got the GBS test done my second to last, possibly last shot and that’s about it.
They were going to set me up for an ultrasound next week but I declined. I’m nervous that if the baby is “big” they’ll start pressuring me for a c-section. I’ve gotten so many ultrasounds and she measured right on track with the last one which wasn’t even that long ago. I’m having second thoughts because I’m paranoid but I’m trying to reassure myself that we don’t need it!
I’m also trying to figure out if I do another shot or not. I’m thinking I really don’t need it and I feel like by the time this shot wears out I’ll be 36+3 so it’s not like it’s a “better safe than sorry” type of thing. But it could be the difference between hospital and birth center so I’m leaning towards getting it….thoughts?
Movement: She’s so strong! I love feeling her movements, she def running out of room though. I’m going to miss feeling little baby kicks once she’s on the outside!
Names: We’re finally making some headway! We have a top three and B is willing to let me pick out of that top three and he wants to pick the middle name. Unfortunately I refuse to do the middle name that he’s chosen for multiple reasons I can’t discuss here. So I’m not sure what we’re going to do :/ Hopefully we’re not back to square one!
Any baby related purchases?: Nothing this week, right now we’re just trying to organize. It seems like we may need some more clothes and the crib mattress for sure but we’re going to wait until she gets here to figure all that out!
Here’s my 35/35 bump!
