ONLY 8 weeks left! This pregnancy has flown by so quickly… it is almost hard to believe that our lil’ love will be here soon! We started our childbirth classes this past Tuesday. We have four of them, running every Tuesday in October. It was fun to be around so many other mom’s and dad’s-to-be… fun to listen to everyone’s stories and learn a little more about what we should be experiencing in the upcoming weeks. I also learned that my kitten-baby dream isn’t as weird as I originally thought. Today I spent some time organizing baby’s things and working in the nursery… hoping to post some pictures soon!
Here is some info on what lil’ love is up to as of week 32:
“By now, your baby weighs 3.75 pounds and is about 16.7 inches long, taking up a lot of space in your uterus. You’re gaining about a pound a week and roughly half of that goes right to your baby. In fact, she’ll gain a third to half of her birth weight during the next 7 weeks as she fattens up for survival outside the womb. She now has toenails, fingernails, and real hair (or at least respectable peach fuzz). Her skin is becoming soft and smooth as she plumps up in preparation for birth.”
