What the Experts Say:

Mother:

Your posture is still very important to your comfort. Maintaining a good posture is a good way to decrease the strain on your body as your center of gravity continues to change.

One of the things that you can do to help maintain your energy levels and to increase your stamina for the birth is to exercise. It is important not to over do it, especially if you have not been exercising prior to this week. Try taking walks or swimming short distances. Getting out and stretching will help you have feel better and reduce the numbers of pregnancy related complaints.

Baby:

Baby is very aware of the surroundings. We tend to think of the uterus as a dark place, but it can be light and dark depending on the mother’s environment. You may be able to distinguish sleep and wake cycles in your baby. Although it usually seems as if the baby wants to sleep while you are awake and vice versa at night.

If you are having Braxton Hicks Contractions use them to practice what you’ve learned in childbirth class, and know that they are a sign that your body is getting ready for labor.

Baby weighs a whopping 3 pounds (1.36 kilograms)! S/he measures about 14.8 inches (37.5 cms) in length.

Dad:

Take notes in childbirth class. Write down what you think is most important for you to remember. Don’t suffer from information overload. If you practice three positions for labor each night, remember the one she liked the most. This “cheat sheet” will help you when it’s time for labor!

 

What’s Going On With Us:

A whole lot of nothing, pregnancy wise, and that’s a good thing!!!

Our roof was done this weekend *glee* so the real work in the nursery can begin in earnest now. 

Since the baby shower that was thrown for us was this Sunday we also have a bunch of stuff to put up in there!

Thanks to every one who came to the shower, it was great to see you!!
