32 Weeks/8 Months

From babycenter.com (she changed to he):

By now, your baby weighs 3.75 pounds (pick up a large jicama) and is about 16.7 inches long, taking up a lot of space in your uterus. You’re gaining about a pound a week and roughly half of that goes right to your baby. In fact, he’ll gain a third to half of his birth weight during the next 7 weeks as he fattens up for survival outside the womb. He now has toenails, fingernails, and real hair (or at least respectable peach fuzz). His skin is becoming soft and smooth as he plumps up in preparation for birth.

How I’m doing:

I had a baby doctor appointment this morning. The baby’s doing good. My blood pressure, glucose, and all that is good. Gained more weight than I should have, which I’m blaming on water retention/fat feet and constipation – by no means was it caused my constant hunger and gorging. 🙂 We’re getting closer and closer. Sitting in the waiting room, I was reading a magazine with it resting on my belly. Ben starting kicking/punching/exercising so much that he actually knocked the magazine from my hands. My little ninja.

Due in 7 weeks!
