Pregnancy update

I’m at about 34 1/2 weeks now. Although there is no way of telling when this child is going to come, we’re pretty much planning on any time now since Abbi was 3 weeks early. At the same time, we’re well aware that she may hold out until the last possible moment. Either way, she is apparently head down how. I have this large lump on my right side where her butt has taken up residency and I get to watch my upper left side convulse as she kicks.

“Your baby now weights over 5.5 pounds and its crown-to-rump length is approximately 13.2 inches. Your baby’s total length is around 20.25 inches at this point. Your uterus is now 6 inches from the bellybutton and the average weight gain is approximately 24 to 29 pounds.”

Next week we have our “Birth Refresher” class and tour of the hospital (which is good since we didn’t deliver there last time) and we have an ultrasound. I’m kind of excited about the ultrasound because we’ll get to see this baby again before she comes out. The purpose of the ultrasound is to see how big the baby is at this point to make sure she’s not pushing 9 pounds. Apparently my OB is a little worried about me pushing out a 9 pounder. The following week I’ll go back for my 36/37 week check and she’ll do a full exam to see how things are progressing.

Funny fact — I was just looking back at when Abbi was born; I had my 37 week appointment on Monday afternoon and went into labor with Abbi the following afternoon. Hmmmm. I really need to get to work on getting this house cleaned and all of my “to-do’s” before this child makes her way into the world.
