I have to publish a blog post right now before you think that I’ve popped already. Sorry for being MIA. But, yes, in case you’re wondering, I’m just here..busy with a lot of things. I haven’t given birth yet but certainly, I’m approaching the finish line.
I’m exactly on my 33rd week and 4th day of pregnancy and here’s how huge I look now:
Hmm let me correct that. That’s how huge my belly looks now. Even while pregnant, I still have a small and skinny built so I’m very far from looking like an elephant. In fact, with the last 7 weeks left, I still have a cushion or I’m allowed to gain 10 lbs, the least, until the 40th week. So my doctor is pleased that she’s not worrying about me having excessive weight gain. However, as expected, I’m not spared with the last stretch discomforts. Severe back pains, leg cramps, heaviness, difficulty of walking, sleeping, getting up, etc. But it’s okay..this is for my little girl so I’ll bear them wholeheartedly.
You might also have probably noticed the new hairdo. Yes, I finally had a haircut the other week. I love how comfy it is because I don’t have to tie it up.
So what’s keeping me busy these past few weeks? Aside from my constant online work, I’m now catching up with my pending Photobooks I’ve put off for so long. I do not have much time left since the coming of the little one will be the signal that my “digiscrapping me time” is up. So I have to rush and finish everything. Asher’s 2nd and 3rd birthday photobooks have just been done and even ordered from Artscow so now, I’m left with just the 2nd pregnancy digital scrapbook which I hope to finish majority of the pages before the big day. It’s entitled 9 Months and Counting and you can view the work in progress or the finished first few pages in my scrapblog.
Here’s what BabyCenter says about the little princess’ development:
This week your baby weighs a little over 4 pounds (heft a pineapple) and has passed the 17-inch mark. He’s rapidly losing that wrinkled, arlien look and his skeleton is hardening. The bones in his skull aren’t fused together, which allows them to move and slightly overlap, thus making it easier for him to fit through the birth canal. These bones don’t entirely fuse until early adulthood, so they can grow as his brain and other tissue expands during infancy and childhood.
