Sweet Baby O is weighing around 5 pounds this week & measuring anywhere from 18-19 inches long, about the size of a cantaloupe! His skin is smoother than ever & his fat layers are making him rounder. Generally, babies born from 34-37 weeks do just fine, and may not even need a stay in the NICU.
HOW IS MOMMY?
Sleepless. I am still not sleeping much, due to discomfort & night sweats.
More Energy. Though I've been getting such a small amount of sleep, I've been more energetic. I know part of this is due to the fact that I've stopped taking my Procardia [contraction medicine]. And I feel SO much better! I've not had any pre-term contractions since I've quit taking the Procardia on Mother's Day. Also, the weather has been just glorious so we've been able to be more active outside -- going on walks & taking more frequent trips to the park.
Swollen. My feet & ankles are killing me! I'm down to just wearing my Birkenstocks & Sanuk Flip-Flops.
Cravings. I've totally been craving a Chicken Burrito & Chips & Queso from a particular Mexican Restaurant, Los Cocos, that is, unfortunately, located in Derby, Kansas. Hello.... I'm in Colorado. #pregnancyproblems
Blessed. Once again, God has given us another week to gestate this sweet baby boy of ours, allowing him to grow a little more plump before we meet him.
