Baby K: Weeks 29, 30, 31, 32, 33

Monday, March 5, 2012

Wow, a lot of weeks are passing by in between blog posts! Things have just been so crazy busy these days. We have completed our childbirth education class and our baby care class, both offered through the hospital we will deliver at. While informational, they crammed a WHOLE LOT OF INFORMATION into a short amount of time! Each class was around 7 hours but it's nonstop learning. As a result of the baby care class, Steve is now an expert swaddler.

Otherwise, we have just been finishing getting the nursery ready, getting excited for our upcoming showers (!!) and we even had a "babymoon" weekend downtown that I'm excited to soon blog about.

At our last 2 appointments, we learned that the baby is in the head down position, which we're hoping doesn't change! I'm getting more uncomfortable when I sleep and the baby is always leaning on my right side, which I've learned feels like your muscles are being ripped apart! Ouch. But, again, we're just so glad that the baby is positioned correctly and seemingly happy to stay that way!

At Week 29, the baby is about the size of a butternut squash - approximately 2 1/2 pounds!

At Week 30, the baby weighs about as much as a cabbage - 3 pounds!

At Week 31, baby is about as heavy as 4 oranges!

At Week 32, the baby weighs about as much as jicama. For those of you who aren't jicama fanatics, this is about 3 3/4 pounds! This was also a mind boggling milestone, as it put me at 8 months pregnant!

And, finally, at Week 33 baby is as heavy as a pineapple - about 4 pounds and about 17 inches long. Whoah!

I can't believe just how quickly the third trimester is flying by! We are so excited to meet our squirmy little baby but can't believe that it will be so soon. I also can't believe I will get even bigger than I already am!
