31 Weeks


Baby's now the size of a squash!
Baby's going through major brain and nerve development these days. His irises now react to light, and all five senses are in working order. (He won't pick up anything from his nose until after birth, though -- smell is transferred through air, not amniotic fluid.)


Except, I have TWO squashes! Justin doesn’t usually cooperate during ultrasounds so I haven’t gotten a good picture of him in several months. Tuesday I only got a good picture of him :) This week (July 5) we found out both Justin and Lana are head down. I feel like there isn’t much room for them to turn anymore, but I’ve got this streak of being proven wrong, so in 4 weeks they’ll be in some other position, I’m sure. Justin weighed approximately 3lb and Lana was 3lb 2oz. When Collin was born, at 39 weeks, we was only 7lb 4oz. Guess there is a reason I feel like I’m more than 31 weeks now.

I haven’t been anywhere, just me and Collin, in more than three weeks. (With the exception of Wednesday, we went to a friends house. Where i sat or laid on her couch the whole time. And someone even changed Collin’s diaper for me. I’m telling you, my friends are the best!) But even going out with Devin and Collin is exhausting and I feel like I need to lay down after just thirty minutes to an hour. One night week I went to Publix with my mom and Collin. I didn’t even push the cart, but I was done. The next day all I could do was lay on the couch. Luckily, I think Collin can tell when I’m not feeling well and was really pretty good all day. He laid with me for a little bit and watched Toy Story 3 and went right down for his nap and told me “night night” as I was half way down the stairs. It put a big smile on my face as I went straight to my bed a slept for two hours :) We’ll see what the next few weeks and my appointment on Wednesday bring.
