36 Weeks

First off I would like to apologize for the delay in posts.  I had surgery a couple weeks ago and typing with one arm proved to be a pain in the a$$!!!  We had a couple appointments in the meantime, and some new pics too!!  The first was regular OB (now weekly) checkup and a group B strep swab, which as of yesterday, results were not in yet.  The next  (which was yesterday) was a followup ultrasound for Choochies big head (which is apparently not so big anymore), and the weekly regular OB checkup.  The ultrasound we had was definitely the last (barring something of the wall happening).  Everything came out perfect!!  Her head measured 87th percentile as well as her legs.  Her belly was 55th percentile.  She is still measuring at about a week ahead of schedule, at EWF of 6lb 10oz.  I think her body finally caught up to her ginormous head!!  😆  As with the rest of the pregnancy, Choochie is not cooperating!!  She is still breech (Frank Breech), and the doc said that she will most likely stay that way.  Not a big deal at all though since we are scheduled for a c-section anyway.  Lets just hope she stays in there till then!!  We are on the final leg of our journey, and the finish line is in sight!!  As of today, we are at 19 days and counting!!

Here are the last pictures you’ll see until we welcome her into the world, and into our family!

 

On to the Chooch!!

How far along? 36 Weeks 5 Days

How big is Choochie this week?   Choochie is about the size of a crenshaw melon, now about six pounds in weight and measures slightly more than 20 inches in length. Growth will experience a slowdown now. Almost all development is complete!  Blood circulation, for instance, has been perfected and  Choochies immune system has matured enough to protect her from infections outside the womb. Other systems still need a few finishing touches.  For example, digestion, which actually won’t be fully mature until sometime after birth.

Sleep? Jess had a night or two really good sleeps this week!

Movement? Alien!! 

Food cravings? Milk Way (thanks to Halloween),Federiccis Pizza, Apples (chocolate covered),  Apple Jacks,  Water!!!!

Gender
