soo i fully intended on writing more after i wrote that really short post a couple of weeks ago but there’s been a lot going on and im back at that point where im tired again. and i move so slow. like soooo slow. dwight keeps making fun of my waddle lol, i mean its hard to walk normal when there is human life in your uterus pushing on your bladder and when your back and feet hurt and you’ve put on this extra weight and don’t have the same center of gravity anymore. 😛
quick update that will require a longer post later: we moved into the house! we are living in the house ! and now we have to unpack and get her room ready. maybe ill post some pics so my out of towners can see? mind you we have boxes in a lot of places so it’d be like the work in progress cause we have plans for what we want to do. and of course we need to get her room ready ASAP.
according to my babycenter app: she is almost 5 lbs and almost 18 in long (there is a weight pool at my job for people trying to see how much she will weigh. someone put 11 lbs O_O ) she is developing fat layers which will help regulate her body temp after birth and which is helping fill her out and get beautiful and round. her central nervous system and lungs are maturing and ive pretty much hit that time frame where if she comes it will be preterm labor. i should get my hospital bag ready. also ive been seeing the doc weekly now so i know her world debut is approaching fast.
