29 weeks

ill update on life later. pregnancy wise:

her muscles and lungs are maturing and her head is growing to make room for her developing brain. during this trimester about 250 milligrams of calcium are deposited into her skeleton every day! her nutritional demands are increasing so i have to bulk up on protein, vitamin C, folic acid and iron.

28 weeks

7 MONTHS. O.M.G. SEVEN. MONTHS. im just gonna let that sink in for a minute.

((and a month left til graduation)) [does little happy dance]

lots has been going on. senior design has been keeping me pretty busy, we have our final presentation next friday, so we’re freaking out just a litttttle bit. maybe ill post a pic about our project? everyone seems to be rooting for us to make it work, which is encouraging. a mom and her toddler son saw us practice flying it and they were amazed lol.

been a little stressed and overwhelmed with everything but im working on trying not to let it get to me. i listen to some of my happy songs, and picture my daughters face in my arms. speaking of her….

she can now blink her eyes, which now have lashes, and she is able to filter some of the light thru my womb. she is developing billions of neurons in her brain and adding more body fat before she makes her world debut.
