Wow 5ish weeks to go
Now the baby is 35 weeks old…which in fetal years is about 90 or so. She’s getting the last fattening stages completed and now she getting big. Her space is very limited inside the womb and her movements in there are fun to watch and feel. Her kidneys are fully developed now, and her liver can process some waste products. On average, fetusi of her age are around 5-6 lbs and are around 18 inches long…though she’s mine so she’s probably like 20 inches or longer. I’m curious as to how tall she will become upon completing her growth when she’s all grown up.
Its truly amazing to feel that her arrival is so eminent. Soon I will be able to hold her in my arms. I hope she likes me. Rachel says that I will never sleep the same…not from the lack of sleep in the beginning, but from the knowledge that they are here, and that something may happen to them. Perhaps this is a female thing. I will have to comment on that when I get to sleep next to her for the first time.
