Lisa Paige: 35 Weeks Baby… The Countdown is On!
I’m 35 weeks pregnant. Only 35 more days to go! I can’t believe our little guy now weighs 5.25 lbs. and is the size of a honeydew melon.
What’s Zach up to this week?
Your baby doesn’t have much room to maneuver now that he’s over 18 inches long and tips the scales at 5 1/4 pounds (pick up a honeydew melon). Because it’s so snug in your womb, he isn’t likely to be doing somersaults anymore, but the number of times he kicks should remain about the same. His kidneys are fully developed now, and his liver can process some waste products. Most of his basic physical development is now complete — he’ll spend the next few weeks putting on weight.
How is momma Paige holding up?
I’m doing well. Commuting is starting to become a real pain in the ass, and by 9pm, I’m pretty tired. Long days are getting the best of me, that’s for sure.
I’m still spinning. In fact, I had a class earlier tonight and sweated my ass off, cruised through an endurance based 50 minute session. Don’t get me wrong, there are definitely days when I’m not into working out, but I always tell myself that in the long run (meaning labor) it will all pay off. That usually motivates me to get up and go. Plus, I never regret a workout.
Still no crazy food cravings. My love for OJ, sour gummy worms and frozen yogurt have all subsided. One thing I still cannot tolerate is the scent of candles. Poor Yankee Candle, I haven’t lit a tart in 9 months. Who have I become?
As we get closer to the due date, I’m prepping little by little. Over the weekend I washed the first of 987 load(s) of Zach’s laundry. I started crying as I dropped all of his precious little white onesies into the washer. Little things like this get me so emotional. I’m having a freaking baby!!
Saturday, Stu plans on putting together the pack n’ play and stroller. He has to tackle that diaper genie too. That thing’s a monster. I had no idea it was so monterous. Zach’s nursery furniture is coming next Saturday. I cannot wait!
Oh, and speaking of Zach’s furniture, I’ll be at BAMBI BABY this SATURDAY from 3-5pm. Come out and hang with me!! 5409 Bergenline Ave, West New York, NJ.
So that’s about it on my end. Every day we get closer to his due date, I get a little more anxious to meet him. All I can think about is holding him in my arms-finally!! Yay, yay, yay!
