32 Weeks & Getting Things Done

by tinysneakers

With only 8 weeks to go, I’m started to realize I need to actually get stuff done. Like a nursery. Put my new office together. Register at the hospital. Find a pediatrician. Full term is merely 5 weeks away…

What’s Up With Baby

Baby’s almost 4 pounds these days and 17 inches long. Apparently half of the pound a week I’m gaining from here on out goes straight to the baby. He or she has toenails, fingernails, real hair, and can suck his or her thumb. It’s all about the practice now- breathing, swallowing, sucking, and kicking.

What’s Up with Me

I can tell baby’s growing a lot this week- growth spurts are always accompanied by a couple days of roughness. Luckily that’s my only complaint. All of the week by week guides are telling me I should be swollen, achy, heartburning, and generally miserable, but so far that stuff’s holding off. I think it’s a fair trade off for feeling like crap for so long. Winking smile Let’s knock on wood just in case.

Other Happenings

This past weekend the husband and I attended a condensed birth and baby class at the local hospital. There was no way we’d be able to manage 5 weeks worth of regular evening classes with our crazy schedules, so it’s great they offered a quick 2 day version. To be honest, it wasn’t enough information for me to feel like spending 5 weeks would be worth it. A little over one day of class was great though. More about that later though.

We’re growing…
