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!
