35 Week Survey!

How Far Along: 35 Weeks (I missed 34).

Size of baby: A Honeydew Melon:

Your baby doesn't have much room to maneuver now that he's over 18 inches long and tips the scales at 5 1/4 pounds (pick up a honeydew melon). Because it's so snug in your womb, he isn't likely to be doing somersaults anymore, but the number of times he kicks should remain about the same. His kidneys are fully developed now, and his liver can process some waste products. Most of his basic physical development is now complete — he'll spend the next few weeks putting on weight.

Maternity Clothes: yes! :)

Gender: It's a surprise!!

Movement: Yes, and we definitely have a "squirmer" more than a kicker now! =)

What I Miss: Not really anything!

Sleep: Still sleeping fine! 

Cravings: Just fruit! All fruit has been sounding good this week. 

Best Moment This Week: The realization that December starts this week and December is the month that Baby George is due! I can't wait to be in December!! =)

What We Are Looking Forward To: Only 2 more weeks and Baby George will be full-term!! I can't wait!!! 

Every 2 week picture didn't work! So here is 35 weeks! Huge difference from 30 weeks! 

35 Weeks!!

33 Week Survey

How Far Along: 33 weeks (I missed 32)! 

Size of baby: A Pineapple:

This week your baby weighs a little over 4 pounds (heft a pineapple) and has passed the 17-inch mark. He's rapidly losing that wrinkled, alien look and his skeleton is hardening. The bones in his skull aren't fused together, which allows them to move and slightly overlap, thus making it easier for him to fit through the birth canal. (The pressure on the head during birth is so intense that many babies are born with a conehead-like appearance.) These bones don't entirely fuse until early adulthood, so they can grow as his brain and other tissue expands during infancy and childhood.

Maternity Clothes: yes! :)

Gender: It's a surprise!!

Movement: Yes, all the time!! I love it!

What I Miss: I don't know how to answer this, this week.  I don't think anything really this week.

Sleep: Still sleeping fine! 

Cravings: Not many lately!

Best Moment This Week: Another baby shower!! This one was a small one on SEBTS campus and I was able to invite some special ladies! It was small quaint and fun!! :)

What We Are Looking Forward To: This baby getting here!! I am anxiously awaiting the arrival of this little one! I cannot wait.

I was planning on taking pictures every 2 weeks but then I forgot...maybe next week! :)

31 Week Survey

How Far Along: 31 weeks

Size of baby: 4 Navel Oranges:

This week, your baby measures over 16 inches long. He weighs about 3.3 pounds (try carrying four navel oranges) and is heading into a growth spurt. He can turn his head from side to side, and his arms, legs, and body are beginning to plump out as needed fat accumulates underneath his skin. He's probably moving a lot, too, so you may have trouble sleeping because your baby's kicks and somersaults keep you up. Take comfort: All this moving is a sign that your baby is active and healthy.

Maternity Clothes: yes! :)

Gender: It's a surprise!!

Movement: Yes, all the time!! I love it!

What I Miss: Normal Clothes.  So many people ask me don't you just love maternity clothes but I have to admit...I don't.  I love clothes so much that I miss my wardrobe! I miss finding screaming deals on super cute clothes.  Oh well, I am loving being pregnant and it is worth wearing the same 2 pairs of pants everyday! :-) 

Sleep: Still sleeping fine! 

Cravings: Not many lately!

Best Moment This Week: 2 things that are best moments this week!! 1. My Baby Shower!!! It was so wonderful and these ladies were so wonderful planning it and making it happen!! :-) I am so thankful for all of them!! 2. I was told that I can work a part of my job from home so I can still stay employed part-time at SEBTS while I am at home!! I am so excited about this.  I will feel better being able to chip in a little on the income! :-)

What We Are Looking Forward To: This baby getting here!! Having all these items from my baby shower it makes me ready to cuddle the baby in my arms!! I can't wait!

I think I am going to start taking pictures every 2 weeks now instead of 4 since I will grow so much in the next 8-9 weeks!! Yay!! The time is coming so fast. Can't wait to meet Baby George. :-)
