This must be the longest of the weekly fruit/veggie update titles yet. An English hothouse cucumber (the kind that come shrink-wrapped in the grocery store, is apparently about 14 inches long, the same length as baby O. His nerves in his ears are becoming more sensitive, and he may be able to hear voices other than mine. Pressure for those around me, I suppose!
He is “practicing” breathing by inhaling and exhaling smal amounts of amniotic fluid. This will help his lungs develop. He weighs 1 2/3 pounds now. As for me, I’m still fighting for air at times, fine at others. Josh felt him kick (a real, strong kick) this week, which was exciting. I finished registering, just in the nick of time, and I’m ready to start signing up for classes at the hospital and finishing my other to-dos. I can’t tackle anything else in his room yet (due to the remodel) although Josh brought his shelves home and they are beautiful!! I have a couple of books I’d like to read before he arrives, and if I do, I’ll post on them!
