33 weeks, 1 day
48 days til due date
Thursday we went for an ultrasound and baby was estimated to weigh 4 lbs 8 oz!!! So exciting. He had been running 2 days ahead with growth but now he’s jumped to about a week ahead. His head circumference was 70th percentile. His biparietal diameter was 97th percentile which means he has a very round head. His abdomen was a little small, his femur length right on track and his humerus length a little ahead. He was breathing and moving around and all looked good. So good they are giving us a week off and we’ll do one last ultrasound at 36 weeks. We did discuss delivery a little with the specialist and he said we’ll have to wait and see how baby’s growth continues. He said “my how our problems have changed. At first we were worried baby would come out too easily and now we’re worried he won’t be able to come out. “:) Happy problems indeed.
I was a little concerned Friday night that my water might have broken as I had some increased watery discharge. But it didn’t smell sweet and it didn’t continue. Baby’s been moving since and contractions have not increased or changed. So I’m hoping it’s all normal. I’m keeping an eye on everything.
I’ve been slowly increasing my activity. Nothing major but I help more with chores around the house. Laundry, putting away dishes, putting away groceries, etc. It feels good to be a little more helpful. I know we still have some tricky stuff to get through but it’s so exciting that we’re nearly at 34 weeks (6 days away!) and 35 weeks is less than 2 weeks away.
Tomorrow we’ll have our first shower at E’s work and our big shower is next Sunday. My mom and E’s mom are busy planning and preparing everything.
The forest book came end of last week and I finished the letter and hung it in the nursery.
Here’s the letter which I made from four sheets of cardboard that I cut out with an exacto knife and taped together with masking tape.
Here it is after using mod podge to glue on some of the pictures.
And here’s the finished product:
And in the nursery:
