This blog was started in 2008 when we did IVF for the first time to build our family after 5 1/2 years of infertility. We now have 8 and 2 year old boys (thanks to modern medicine) and we are enjoying our blessed life as parents ♥ In the summer of 2016 we took another huge step and moved across the country from Oklahoma to New York! This blog is about life and everything in between

Honeydew with 5 Weeks to go

35 weeks is here ladies and gentleman, so here are your updates for the 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 (like 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.
I'm happy to say my weight (as of a couple days ago) was up only 24lbs! And no stretch marks still. I am trying to eat healthy with lots of veggies and fruit in my diet. I consider all the running around at work I do my exercise so that will just have to do for now!
This Wednesday I am planning on doing my maternity pictures. We are just doing them ourselves and my friend Sara is going to take the pictures. I have picked out a few poses that I like and then I can add some cute effects and get them printed off on my own. So hopefully soon I'll have those posted for you!
