Holy Moly! 35 weeks already!!
How Big Is Baby?
On average babies now measure over 18 inches long and around 5 1/4 lbs. Physical development is pretty much complete – now she is just putting on weight!
How Is Mama?
WELL … mama had her 35 week OB appointment today. I was surprised to find out that I am already 2 cm dilated! Emmalyne is ALL the way down in my pelvis – so much so that the midwife could feel her head! Crazy!! Needless to say things are moving in the right direction. The MW thinks I will be fine through the move to Missouri and up until 37 weeks … after that is anyone’s guess. I have been having pretty consistent contractions. That, combined with being dilated, and the stress of the move could potentially put us over the edge! Emmie is measuring 5ish lbs and has a great heart rate. She is still super active which makes me a proud mama 🙂 Basically, once we get to Missouri, I am getting pre-registered at labor and delivery and immediately getting her room and my hospital bag packed. My aunt had a dream that Emmie wanted to be a September baby so who knows! As long as she is healthy I will be happy 🙂 It’s hard to believe that I will be 9 months pregnant on FRIDAY!
Today was another important day in our house. Trigger turned 4! My sweet puggle 🙂 Chris and I got Trigger when we were dating. Trig has been through a 15-month separation, our wedding, a 12-month deployment, 5 moves, and so much more. He is my first furbaby and I love him so so so much. He is definitely a very important member of our family.
SO … to celebrate his important day, I made him a birthday cake! A banana peanut butter cake with cinnamon cream cheese frosting to be exact. All totally pet friendly 😉
They both LOVED it and devoured their respective pieces.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY BUBBA! WE LOVE YOU!
Do you think Emmie will be a September or October baby?
Do you mistake your pets for children sometimes? NO? Just us? Haha.
