I can’t believe how quickly 30 weeks is creeping up on me. Insane!
At 27 weeks, baby is breathing (it’s amniotic fluid, not air, but it still counts). This week, your baby weighs almost 2 pounds and is about 14 1/2 inches long with her legs extended. She’s sleeping and waking at regular intervals, opening and closing her eyes, and perhaps even sucking her fingers. With more brain tissue developing, your baby’s brain is very active now. While her lungs are still immature, they would be capable of functioning — with a lot of medical help — if she were born now. Chalk up any tiny rhythmic movements you may be feeling to a case of baby hiccups, which may be common from now on. Each episode usually lasts only a few moments, and they don’t bother her, so just relax and enjoy the tickle.
Wow, I didn’t even think about it, as of today I’m in the 3rd trimester! Woah! Our good friend Alicia hit 39 weeks pregnant yesterday and so we’re all just waiting. She actually headed down towards the hospital last weekend but came home after staying at her parents house for the weekend because her contractions just stopped. I cannot imagine, especially since she had her first child at 38 weeks 3 days so she’s much more pregnant than she’s ever been and actually thought #2 would come earlier. I’m convinced that she’ll have an 11/11/11 baby, I’ve been saying it for weeks. Here’s to the full moon tomorrow. =)
We got some crazy/exhausting news; on Monday we were informed that the resort is opening 4 days early, which wouldn’t be an issue but I’m currently the only one available to do my job which needs 7 day a week coverage. So, I’ll be working 6 days this week at 10 hours shifts, holy exhaustion batman! Ella is able to come in with me this weekend though so I don’t have to scramble to find daycare. So stressful! I’m supposed to be low stress right now, hahaha! And to keep the good times rolling tomorrow the resort is participating in a “Mock Lift Catastrophe” that I get to be a big part of, so my phone will be ringing off the hook from about noon till 3, AWESOME! =)
