35 Weeks and Baby Showers Galore!

35 Weeks April 13, 2010 Length 20-20.5in Weight 5.5lbs Size: A honeydew melon

"Your baby doesn't have much room to maneuver now that it's over 18 inches long and tips the scales at 5 1/4 pounds. Because it's so snug in your womb, baby isn't likely to be doing somersaults anymore, but the number of kicks should remain about the same. The kidneys are fully developed now, and the liver can process some waste products. Most of the basic physical development is now complete — baby will spend the next few weeks putting on weight."
"My insides have shifted for sure, everything seems to be up under my rib cage. If you could peek inside your womb, you'd see that there's more baby than amniotic fluid in there now." - Baby Center

Once a week appointments these days, and the doctor can not tell for sure if that baby is head up or head down. She thinks we are breech right now, so another sonogram is scheduled for next week. There is talking of waiting to let the baby flip, doing a manual flip procedure (very painful possibility), or a csection. So we are praying the baby flips on its own and we don't have to intercede!
This weekend I have my baby showers and a fun baby q lined up! What a blessing to have so many people that love and support us!
can't wait!
