Weeks pregnant?: THIRTY- FOUR WEEKS! Technically 6 WEEKS TO GO, but we are hoping sooner! 🙂
What Demi Is Up Too:
Demi is clocking in at five pounds and could be as tall as 20 inches by now, and the vernix (the white coating protecting your baby’s skin) is getting thicker. 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. In other baby-related developments, those tiny fingernails have probably reached the tips of her fingers by now — and getting ready for that first postpartum manicure.
Maternity clothes?: I think we should rename this sweats/Michaels clothing
Stretch marks?: Michael saw a couple of super tiny ones that I could not see, but he said it actually took light hitting my body a certain way, so hopefully the bottle of lotion I put on last night helped!
Sleep: what is sleep? I heard of it before
Best moment this week?: knowing sweet Demi is a big girl who is healthy and fully developed so she is clear to go when she feels ready
Miss Anything?: my sanity! I am just so ready to be a mommy that the constant growth and pregnancy hormones are driving me nuts
Movement?: I can watch her little body move as I lay on my side which is awesome, Michael says it looks like a scene from Alien
Food cravings: salads and hot sauce!
Symptoms?: feeling like I am back in the first trimester with the nausea and fatigue but tack on some lower back pain and contractions and you have a fun afternoon right there! 😉 she is worth every last bit!
Belly Button in or out?: more out than in
Wedding rings on or off?: Off, fake ring on!
Happy or Moody most of the time?: A ton of happy moments but the occasional breakdown at times
Looking forward to?: going ahead and having our sweet baby girl!
We are definitely asking for prayers over the next few weeks for our sweet baby girl. Last week they thought they heard an arrhythmia and sent us to see a specialist, when we went in the next day to see him, he found out the problem our doctor was hearing wasn’t because of an arrhythmia but rather the cord is around her neck and I am pretty sure she thinks its fun to play with, with the way her little hands are right by it! The doctor is checking us every week until we deliver and he feels good about her being fine, but of course for first time mommy and daddy and then first time Muddy and Granddaddy the nerves and craziness is a little high. We are doing kick tests and have had to go to triage once because she failed but she seems ok, so we are just trusting that God has his perfect plan for the remainder of our pregnancy!
