As we’re starting to get closer to THE due date I thought I’d have some more regular updates on the pregnancy.
So, what’s going on during this week?
size of baby will be about 37 cm and way around 1.76kg at the end of this week. Fruit wise that’s either a winter squash, a large cabbage or a summer cantaloupe depending on the app I check!
organs are almost fully developed, lungs take the longest time. Baby just has to gain weight now. AND since I am as well I have retired all trousers and will now attempt a “super comfy clothes but lighten it up with bling bling accessories” kind of life.
it’s cramped in my belly and my stomach is now so big that it’s affecting my mobility - word!
body may have begun to react with contractions when you do to much which is sign to ease up a bit - well, word again on that one!
every breath requires about 20 percent more oxygen and more carbon dioxide. Well, that explains the breathlessness and why I’m so slow!
Body is preparing for the delivery and I’ll sleep worse, wake up more often and will have a hard time concentrating. Hmmm, don’t think this is a new one to be honest…haha
It’s common to become introvert because of the mental preparation for parenthood and for the delivery - well still not the case, I’ve been dying to socialize because Valeria has been sick and husband has been away travelling.
