Growing Everyday!


32 weeks!

It seems as though I update the blog every two weeks or so. In the last month (yes January is already over somehow) I have been amazed at how much this little boy has grown, also meaning how much I have grown! I don't know how my skin is still getting bigger with him, but it is. Here are few picture's from about a week ago. Our friends had a birthday party, tropic style on the only day is snowed in Eugene!
Brian went with me to the last baby appointment, we got to have a new 'picture' taken (I'm not going to post it, it is really hard to see even in person, really dark and basically he is big enough now it's either a picture of his head or feet or legs...). After the doctor measured his head and body and did his calculations he said well he's about 6 lbs. now! 6 lbs... um that's bigger than our friends baby when he was born! Seriously think I might die, I know I'll live but I really wasn't freaked out about the delivery until now. Any question about an epidural is out the window now, give me the drugs. For those who don't know baby language, and I'm learning everyday, babies grow about 1/2 to 1 lbs a week in the last month to month and half. So if he is on the high end and comes on his due date he will be way to big. Brian and I have also decided that I can eat but he has to cut back! As you can tell I'm a little nervous about having a large baby. Good thing we start a birthing class next week, I'm going to need all the help I can get.

That's a huge belly! Good luck with your 12 pounder! Sorry I can't be there to do your epidural for you. Tell Brian not to pass out during the delivery....
