Only 9 more weeks!!!! Give or take a few...
I currently feel the same as always. The only problem I have been having constantly this entire pregnancy is the need to pee a million times at night. I think lasts nights tally was somewhere around 7, YES I said 7. I am going to be so happy when the constant need to pee at night is GONE!
The baby is still moving around like crazy in there, sometimes it looks like it is trying to escape. Sadly it's favorite spot to dance is my bladder, which doesn't help with the peeing issue I have.
Lately I have been thinking a lot about this little baby and who its going to take after more or less. Is it going to have Dan's eyes, my hair and so on. I am also obsessing over what its personality will be like. It will be a Ewing, and if you have ever met one you know they have strong personality genes. I can spot a little bit of Dan in each one of his nieces and nephews. I just wonder what out kid will be like, soon I will know.
The other day I got some pretty good advice from a customer at work. He said looking back he realizes he was always thinking about future and past instead of just living in the now with his kids. Like when the baby was a newborn, he was always thinking about how he couldn't wait for the little baby to grow up and talk and walk and do all that. Then when it got older he was wishing for the newborn days again. So, he told me to remember to live in the moment and savory every second of it. I think I will.
This week, your baby measures over 16 inches long. He weighs about 3.3 pounds (try carrying four navel oranges) and is heading into a growth spurt. He can turn his head from side to side, and his arms, legs, and body are beginning to plump out as needed fat accumulates underneath his skin. He's probably moving a lot, too, so you may have trouble sleeping because your baby's kicks and somersaults keep you up. Take comfort: All this moving is a sign that your baby is active and healthy.
As far as our room swap is going. Yesterday we moved our bed and some dresser's into our new room. All the stuff that is waiting to go into the baby's room is currently in the living room. It is all happening slowly but surely.
Sang this song during worship at church today. I love it, really makes me think about how much I love Jesus and how much I am thankful for what he did for me.
