Ben and I have survived our labor and delivery classes! No fainting on either of our parts! We learned alot and it did not seem to overwhelming. Doodlebug is kicking up quite a storm, and it has become pretty interesting to watch my tummy do the wave. I forget that people see my tummy from a different angle then I do... but none the less it is fun to watch.
I officially don't fall into a deep sleep until about 3am and then sleep until about 9. This seems like a habit I may get myself into with this little one!
"This week your baby weighs a little over 4 pounds (heft a pineapple) and has passed the 17-inch mark. Baby is rapidly losing that wrinkled, alien look and the skeleton is hardening. The bones in the skull aren't fused together, which allows them to move and slightly overlap, thus making it easier for baby to fit through the birth canal. These bones don't entirely fuse until early adulthood, so they can grow as the brain and other tissue expands during infancy and childhood.
As your baby fills out even more of your belly, lots of things might start to change: Whereas before you were swaying, you may find yourself waddling. Finding an easy position to sit in — let alone sleep — is becoming more of a challenge. And bumping into chairs and counters is par for the course." - Baby Center
