Today we are at 34 weeks and 1 day. Incredible. Thursday at Goodcents the guy making my sandwich asked me how many weeks I had left and after I used my fingers to count it off, I realized it is only 6 weeks until the due date. Only 6 weeks! I can’t believe it.
I’m feeling great and the little guy still seems to be growing right on schedule which means he is about the size of a pineapple. At our first childbirth class the instructor suggested eating something sugary or drinking cold water to get a quick reaction from the baby if I haven’t felt him move in awhile. This definitely works, but he still is moving around pretty regularly and intensely.
In other news, I no longer seem to have ankle bones, but at this point they seem overrated. Who is looking at my feet when my belly is the first thing through every doorway?
And, in more important other news, our friends had their little girl yesterday! We are so happy for them and excited to introduce our two little babies some day soon.
Last night was the rehearsal for my brother-in-law’s wedding which is today! They are excited and so are we. We got to see a bunch of Zach’s family Thursday night and spent most of the day with them yesterday too. Zach’s lovely aunts had a baby shower for me which was so much fun and a great opportunity to sit around and laugh with the ladies in Zach’s family. The last time we saw many of them was at our wedding nearly four years ago so this wedding weekend is a great reunion for everyone.
I’m looking forward to the wedding tonight!
