25 weeks!

We are 25 weeks along into the pregnancy and Im ecstatic! We have had a busy few months and I feel this pregnancy is too fast.. – ill have to look back to this post at 38 weeks :p

The best thing with having the due-date mid January is that its right after Christmas and that means time will feel faster as its a busy time – and Ill still *hopefully* get some “down time” in January to get mentally ready for this new little miracle to join our family

A bit about how our little girl will develop this next week: (From baby-gaga.com)

Our little grower’s physical proportions are pretty much birth-ready and most of her remaining development will largely be weight gain and a ton of nervous system development. 

The good news is: if our child were to be born premature, she’d likely survive without much trauma as her lungs started producing “surfactant” last week, which means her tiny respiratory system is getting stronger with each passing day.

Yes, now’s a good time for a minor sigh of relief and a quick pat on the back. All that hard work and conscientious living is really getting our child prepared for a healthy delivery.

In mobile-fetus news: our baby should be scootching slowly out of the breech position (head upright, with their butt-n-legs down by my pelvis) and start rotating around for a head-first exit through the birth canal.

If all goes well, and our little womb hi-jacker isn’t a contrary one, she’ll be locked-n-loaded in the next few weeks!

Time is short (or really long, depending on who you ask) — just (still!) 14 weeks left before I can go back to being a single-resident human… with one tiny brand-spankin’ new family member!
