Did I kinda throw you off with the title? My bad. But seriously, can you believe that there's only THIRTEEN weeks left until Baby L will be here!? Yep, I'm 26 weeks today and technically there's 14 weeks left, but my Dr will probably induce at 39 weeks so we hopefully don't have any surprises!
Anywho, here's the scoop on baby this week:
The network of nerves in baby's ears is better developed and more sensitive than before. He may now be able to hear both your voice and your partner's as you chat with each other. He's inhaling and exhaling small amounts of amniotic fluid, which is essential for the development of his lungs. These so-called breathing movements are also good practice for when he's born and takes that first gulp of air. And he's continuing to put on baby fat. He now weighs about a pound and two-thirds and measures 14 inches from head to heel. If you're having a boy, his testicles are beginning to descend into his scrotum — a trip that will take two to three days.
Hey, BTW, have you noticed the little baby ticker on the right side? We're down to double digits now!! Eeekk!
I wish the weather were down to double digits! It's just getting more miserable by the day...we're on [consecutive] day 32 of triple digit heat.
I think cankles are on the horizon...I looked down the other day and my feet were randomly swollen, although the swelling went down, I'm sure it's only a matter of time before it's here to stay. Yay.
In other random news, it was my b-day yesterday and my wonderful IPs sent me a goody basket that I just have to show off ☺
Are you jealous? You should be.
Anywho, nothing else to report. I'll holla at cha next week after my Dr appointment (glucose tolerance test day!)
