|whoozah, six more weeks!?! gesh...|
~Apparently all I needed to get ready for George was a visit from my mom. She whipped me into shape with the determination that baby boy would not have a pink nursery upon his arrival. After a few days of shopping for boy basics, George's room is almost ready to go!
~We also completed a handful of house projects that have been sitting in waiting for months. Hanging curtains, shelves, moving furniture, etc. Guess we were both nesting! :)
~While pregnant with Lily, I consistently measured three weeks behind. With George, I am measuring exactly on schedule. Which I blame for the fact that I feel MUCH bigger and more uncomfortable this time around (even though I actually weigh less!).
~Living in Arizona and being pregnant during the hot summer months isn't helping either. The heat is doing a number on my hands and feet. By the end of the day, I barely recognize my toes! We've spent as much time as possible in the pool cooling off and providing relief to my extremities.
~George tosses and turns and I love every single movement. Lily has been patient enough to feel him a few times, loves talking to my stomach, and asking questions about the baby. Just the other day, she asked in a very concerned voice if she'd still be my baby even after her brother arrives. She was much relieved when I assured her that she would always be my baby and my best girl (I once asked if she was my best buddy. She said no, she was a girl, not a buddy...now she loves being called my 'best girl'.)
~I had a sonogram at my 34 week appointment. George is approximately 5lbs, 9oz, head down, and projecting to be between 7 and 7 1/2 lbs at birth. As a comparison, Lily was approximately 6lbs at 35 weeks and was 7.7oz at birth.
~George is still very much a boy according to the latest sonogram. :)
Lily wanted to take a picture of her tummy too!
