36 weeks - Jan. 27, 2011
Here is my 36 week picture. You'll have to excuse the weird picture. I was having trouble getting a good picture. For some reason standing on the toilet does not help with balance when trying to take self portraits. My belly is getting bigger. It seems like it grows all the time. Yesterday it was 41 inches, but I think today the bambino moved up and is laying sideways in my belly, making it bigger. Now the baby's hiccups are in my stomach as opposed to my pelvis. Technically we only have 4 more weeks, but were hoping the baby wants out sooner. I am slightly dilated and effaced, and having braxton hicks almost every day. They seem to be getting more intense, but we'll see. Luke is super excited! The bag is packed and next to the door, and the diaper bag is packed, and my camoflauge hooter hider is made, and the carseat is in the car. Now if only the baby would get here.
So the past two weeks I babysat a 2.5 year old and a 3.5 year old on Thursday morning. The 3 year old is full of information, especially about babies. Like where they come out of your body and today when I was 'babysitting' her baby she came to pick it up and asked if it was crying. I told her yes, and that I thought the baby was hungry. She said "Good, cause I have some milk in my boob." And she proceeded to feed the baby using the football hold. At least she knows the correct form for breastfeeding, even if it was more stomach feeding. It was hilarious. Little kids crack me up.
