Weekly Womb #35

35 weeks and growing. So, my babycenter email said things like this today:

1. your baby doesn't have much room to manuever now that he/she is over 5 lbs and 18 inches
2. your baby has likely stopped turning somersaults but the number of kicks will remain the same
3. since most of the baby's physical development is complete, he or she will just spend the next few weeks (5 to be exact) putting on weight.



That is totally awesome that the baby is over 5lbs and all the major organs are pretty much developed! Actually, it's a relief. Thanks for the good news Babycenter!


And then there's the rest of the story :
(which was presented in the Babycenter email like a newflash)


1. baby doesn't have much room to manuever- REALLY, Babycenter? I hadn't noticed....


2. the number of kicks will remain the same- that's GREAT......just great......consider my ribs and bladder to be a punching bag.....really, i love that.


3. he or she will spend the next few weeks just putting on weight- even better, Babycenter, even better. I can't wait to add umpteen more pounds to my already bloated, gargantuon figure......can't wait.
