How far along: 34 weeks. His skin is smoother than ever. His central nervous system is maturing and his lungs are continuing to mature as well!
How big is baby: About 4 3/4 pounds and almost 18 inches long. Like an average cantaloupe!
Sleep: It is okay, some nights are better than others! Switching sides is sort of a production, and I have to fully awake to make the switch.
Diet/Cravings/Aversions: Yogurt, apples and Halloween candy!
Exercise: YOGA! I love the yoga barre class. Today I was late and everyone thought I had had the baby. So funny!
Movement: Yes. They are getting firmer and more powerful!
Worries: I don't know if I had any new worries this week. I am still wondering what position this baby is, even though we have 6 weeks to move.
What I'm loving: Fall break! It is so nice to sleep in a bit (today the entire family slept until 8:15 AM) and have time as a family. Today Ryan and I went to lunch ALONE and it was perfect. I also took him to Ikea... it was a special day!
Symptoms: I don't want to hear from strangers how hard 2 kids is. This is similar to when people say "enjoy your sleep" when you are pregnant with your first child. There is no reason for these sorts of comments. Most people have siblings and many people have done this. I have no delusions that this won't be hard, but I am also confident that we will be fine. Tired but fine.
What I'm looking forward to: Ryan finished painting the nursery and now we are working hard to get it all pulled together! Our colors are gray, orange, and blue! I can't believe there will be a little baby sleeping in there in less than 6 weeks (hopefully)!!!
