34 Weeks

Wow, only 6 weeks to go! Kyle and I had a full day of childbirth class at the hospital this past Sunday. He was a trooper - getting him there was the hardest part. During the class they took us on a tour of the birth center where I will deliver. While we were standing outside of the nursery, they wheeled one of the new babies in. Suffice it to say, I was choking back the tears as were some of the other mom's in our class and the daddies were blinking awfully hard too. It's hard to believe in just 6 short weeks we are going to have one of our very own. We better get busy on the rest of the to do list!

Here is what Baby Girl is up to this week...

Your baby now weighs about 4 3/4 pounds (like your average cantaloupe) and is almost 18 inches long. Her fat layers — which will help regulate her body temperature once she's born — are filling her out, making her rounder. Her skin is also smoother than ever. Her central nervous system is maturing and her lungs are continuing to mature as well.

  1. I think the hospital tour is one of the things that makes it more real for the guys. I hope you enjoy the last weeks of getting ready for your sweet baby girl!
