39 1/2 Weeks Belly

Five days from my due date and counting.

I don’t really feel like I’m any closer to having a baby than I was a few weeks ago, but what the heck do I know?

The other day I was getting a little impatient. I just wanted to have the baby and be done with the whole pregnancy thing. Then I realized how much things were about to change in my life, and decided to view these final few days of pregnancy in a new light. I’m going to appreciate and enjoy the quiet moments, the time to myself, the times where Brandon and I can sit in bed and laugh about the most mundane things. I’m especially going to embrace the sleeping opportunities and the pampering!

36 Weeks Belly

36 Weeks Belly36 weeks and all is well!

According to the books, our little boy is pretty much full grown as far as length goes, probably measuring in somewhere around 20 – 21 inches. He’s probably weighing about 6 pounds.

It’s becoming difficult to get a good night’s sleep, and the baby’s starting to get a little cramped. It’s pretty much impossible for me to not feel him in their moving around, and trying to stretch out.

33 Weeks Belly

At 33, almost 34 weeks along, things are starting to become more real. Not only am I getting larger, the baby’s movements are becoming stronger.

Sometimes it feels like LBS is in there training for a sycronized swimming competition or something. I’m starting to track patterns in his practice schedule: he’s usually up early in the morning, around 6am; mid-morning around 10:30am, mid-afternoon at 3pm and finally as I’m going to bed around 9:30pm. I’m sure he’s getting in a few night sessions, but luckily he’s not strong enough to wake me up, yet.

According to the books, the baby weighs about 4.5lbs and is nearly 20 inches long.
