Jeff pointed out this morning that next month we will have a baby! Hard to believe I’ll be full term in just 7 weeks. The Boy is now about the same weight as a pineapple, or about four and a half pounds. He continues to move around in there, which is always great to feel. At my most recent appointment (Thursday), the doctor said he was head down and turned to the side, with his bottom on my left, one leg folded up and one leg straight out. Doesn’t sound very comfortable to me, but I know babies are always smushed in utero. Maybe he’ll be flexible like his mom. Thursday was also our tour of the childbirth center at Providence. It was nice to see the rooms and learn a little more about how everything works there.
Jeff’s brother Greg came out this weekend to help with painting the nursery, and it looks great! I’ll post pictures once it’s all finished. I am very grateful to both Jeff and Greg for executing my idea for stripes on one wall, which was very labor intensive for them, and not at all for me. Thanks wonderful husband and wonderful brother-in-law!
You may have heard about the earthquake we had here Friday morning. It was a 4.5 on the Richter scale, but occurred about 36 miles under the ocean, so it doesn’t seem to have caused any damage. Jeff and I didn’t feel it, I was still in bed and he was downstairs getting ready, but we both heard the wall rattle…though we didn’t figure out what caused it until hearing the news later that morning. That was the first quake for both of us.
Here’s the official 33 week picture!
