34 Weeks

From BabyCenter.com:

How your baby's growing:

Your baby now weighs about 4 3/4 pounds (like your average cantaloupe) and is almost 18 inches long. Her fat layers — which will help regulate her body temperature once she's born — are filling her out, making her rounder. Her skin is also smoother than ever. Her central nervous system is maturing and her lungs are continuing to mature as well. If you've been nervous about preterm labor, you'll be happy to know that babies born between 34 and 37 weeks who have no other health problems generally do fine. They may need a short stay in the neonatal nursery and may have a few short-term health issues, but in the long run, they usually do as well as full-term babies.

From Sarah:

I can't believe we only have 6 weeks left. WOW. My nesting stuff has kinda stopped, probably because she is impairing my lung capacity and it's hard to do anything but sit. I wear myself out getting ready in the morning. LOL, I feel like I need to go and lay down for about 30 minutes after I get ready and before I go to work. Luckily, my job is 90% sitting! I was thinking the other day that I would be done by now if I was a waitress or someone who had to be on my feet all day. Even sitting I have to prop my feet up or they are the size of cantaloupes at the end of the day. :) Not really, but they do get numb and swollen.

After the heart scare and gallbladder fun last week, this week has been pretty calm.

I have to plan to get my brother over to help get some stuff out of the attic (Pack and Play, Swing, Bouncy Chair) He's skinny and limber and can get up in the attic better then others, since we don't have a attic ladder, you have to use a regular ladder and it just doesn't work for bigger folks, because there is a refrigerator in the way of where the ladder needs to go, so it makes it difficult. (Don't worry, I've thought about getting up there myself, but about 1 year ago, before pregnancy, I lost the ladder and was stuck up there hanging from the attic hole, therefore, no more attic for Sarah)

I've got Ana's picture outfit for her first hospital pictures picked out, washed and ready to go (Thanks Gran) and then her going home outfit is ready, too. It's this sweater with some cute little brown pants. It may be too hot for the outfit, but she won't be in the heat but to walk from the hospital door to the car (What, 5 feet?) and it is cold in the hospital. And it was tooo cute. :)

I know, a lot of dots, my family has already joked that her nick-name is going to be Dotty. But, it's cute.

Soon, I'll be packing our suitcase, and getting stuff ready for her to be here, I really can't believe 6 more weeks.

I see Dr. S on Friday and will let you know how it goes!
