33 weeks! TOBYBLANZAGANZA and is Isaac Diaz here yet??

No comments:
  • Amniotic fluid is at its highest level during your pregnancy.
  • Your baby's head size has increased 3/8ths of an inch due to rapid brain growth.
  • Neurons and synapses are developing in huge numbers -- forming connections in your baby's brain will give him the skills he needs to thrive as a newborn. This week, he may be able to coordinate sucking and swallowing with breathing.
  • While most of his bones are hardening, his skull is quite pliable and not completely joined. The bones will be able to move slightly to make birthing easier.
  • Your baby takes intermittent deep breaths -- of water! That's okay, though since he gets oxygen from the placenta. This breathing exercises muscles and encourages his lung cells to produce more surfactant (a protein essential for healthy lung development).
  • Your infant is now 17.2 inches (43.7cm) long and weighs 4.23 pounds (1918gm).

    Now, actually Toby was this big last week... so he's probably a little closer to 4 and a half pounds now!

    Got a call last night Crystal was headed to the hospital... not sure of today's update yet
    I have been feeling bummed about missing the Christmas season... I have decorations at home but it's just different not being out in it... buying presents and hearing the music everywhere.... I was so sad to have to stay home from the Christmas banquet, I cried.
    BUT last night the Christmas banquet came to me! The whole choir and the video--- and the water glass Carolers.... the whole show! It was so awesome and so fun... Pam and John Crouse are the greatest... I feel like I got to have some Christmas season right here in my house.

    Dr's appointment today. Pray that I don't get re-hospitalized for my final week of bedrest!
