29 weeks pregnant … now in Week 30!
Can you believe we have officially reached the thirties??? Wow, wow, wow.
Believe it or not, it’s only really set in that the baby is coming soon. I know we still have 10 or 11 weeks left, but I’ve only just realized that it’s getting close. Occasionally I have a burst of Omigod-we-need-to-get-all-of-the-STUFF, but I’ve been forcing myself to wait until after my shower (so I don’t buy things that I end up getting again, as gifts).
Luckily my shower is TODAY! Yay! I am so excited to see everyone — including some family members/friends that I haven’t seen in a while — and also kind of nervous about being the center of attention. I have never liked unwrapping presents in front of people, while all eyes on are me, but I’m eager to get items that will help me feel more prepared for Baby Boy.
Here’s what happening with Baby Boy this week:
Baby’s size: He’s officially a three-pounder, and measures about 17 inches long! Lengthwise, he only has 3-5 more inches to go.
Development: He might be sucking his thumb in there, and his fingers are strong enough that he could grip mine. Awww.
Appearance: His skin is smoothing out, and it gets more fat beneath the surface. I hope he’s a cute little chubber.
