32 weeks!

Day 36 of bedrest and we're getting closer! *Only* 49 more days, ugh! But seriously, can someone spring me outta this joint?? I'm so over it! Don't get me wrong, I know this is the best thing for Baby L, but geez louise I'm tired of feeling so isolated from the world. Oh and by the way, to people that call or text me....please don't ask me "what are you doing?" What the hell do you think I'm doing, having a friggin' keg party?! I'm in the bed, most likely in the same spot that you left me in 2 weeks ago and probably playing 'Words with Friends'. (Sorry for bitching, it's just one of those days)

*PS* Is there such a thing as a mobile pedicure service? If so, please send it my way. Thanks.

So anyway, enough of that. We're 32 weeks today (yay!) and here's what's going on with Baby L this week:

By now, baby weighs about 3.75 pounds and is about 16.7 inches long, taking up a lot of space in the uterus. I'm gaining about a pound a week (noooo!) and roughly half of that goes right to the 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.

Other than being bored, I'm doing well and haven't been having any contractions, so yay! I'll update again after my appointment next week. Maybe I won't be so grumpy, but don't bet on it. :) TTYL!

Hey Krystal! Whatcha been up to? Just kidding. Don't hate me.
You look "wild" in that shirt!
After this is all over, you should burn your mattress to declare the end of your suffering. It's sort of like burning your bra but without all the drama.
Take care. m.

like i said on AAS you look great!! i would talk to your doc about when the bedrest will be ending like i knew that at 36w i would be back to "normal" so it's probably not 49 days but hopefully only 36 more :)

Hey there!! Just getting caught up. You are doing such an amazing job!! Check out Dexter for sure and maybe even get HBO for some True Blood. :) If you're a reader, the Hunger Games series and Sookie Stackhouse series are both great! As is the book Outlander. It's super long and might take you all 8 weeks to finish the series!! :)

Good luck to you and baby L!!!!! Keep up the great work!!
