We are 35 weeks along with 35 days to go! (and they can't pass quickly enough!!)
Last weekend I had a fantastic shower thrown by friends! It was a lot of fun and even included a very competitive game of pictionary. It seems that the game was rigged though, with one team getting words like crying baby and spit up and the other team having to draw words like contractions, labor and breast pump! (although, the 3 second drawing of "labor" was quite impressive. I had a great time and got a lot of wonderful things for baby Kaylee!
My replacement at work has been officially found. She will start working with me this Tuesday and my last day of work is slated for March 19.
This week the final touches are being added to your mini-masterpiece and most of his development is going to packing on the pounds. While baby's movements may be becoming less jerky, he may do his final somersault in the womb soon—to put himself into the head-down position for birth. Other fascinating facts:
Your little Karate Kid can't quite pack the punch he used to due to the limited space inside the womb these days. You're likely to feel more wiggles, stretches and rolls than kicks and jabs. (Not true) The extra layer of fat your baby is adding will create those cute dimples on your baby's elbows and knees. His liver has begun processing his waste products, so you know which organ to thank when he has his first blowout up the back of his onesie.
Baby's nails are growing so long they may curl over the tips of his tiny fingers and toes before he sees a pair of clippers. He'll be in serious need of a mani-pedi once he's born (as will you).
Your baby is now about 5½ pounds and over 18 inches long—about the size of one of those Costco sheet cakes. (source: 3dpregnancy.com)
