32 Weeks!

Hard to believe that we only have 8 weeks to go! Each week, we're getting more prepared-- we received so many nice things at our showers the past two weeks (pics to come!) and we've done a little shopping to get the rest of the things we need. Now, I just need to wash and organize!

This week, baby is the size of a knee high boot:

And looks like this:

"Although your baby will still remain active, his days of trying out for Cirque du Soleil are nearly over. About this time your baby will settle into the head-down position in preparation for birth.

Other fascinating facts:

Both you and baby are putting on some serious weight at this point. You'll probably gain about a pound a week for the next few weeks, with half of that poundage bulking up baby. He'll likely double his weight in the next eight weeks.

Ever wonder what your baby is doing in there these days? He's busy blinking, looking around, grabbing things, making faces, practicing his breathing, peeing and listening to everything around him—pretty much exactly what he'll be doing for the first three months of his life, sans the adoring audience and the flashing camera.

Your baby may (or may not) have a full head of hair now. If he's a baldy, don't worry. You can always buy a Baby Toupee.

By the end of this week, your baby will weigh about 4 pounds and measure over 17 inches long—about the length of a hot pair of above-the-knee boots. Christian Louboutin? Manolo Blahnik? We're thinking Isaac Mizrahi for Target—you've got a nursery to furnish!"

We're finishing up our classes at the hospital this week-- tonight we tour Labor and Delivery Floor and the Birthing Suites and Thursday we have a breastfeeding class. It feels great to check these off our (never ending) list of things to do!
