DomerBaby Update

I realized that I haven't done this in a while!

DomerBaby weighs approximately 5.5 lbs, and is about 20.25" long. Wow! The baby opens its eyes when awake, and can "see" light when shined on my belly (we tried this last night... seemed to distract baby from kicking!). It's fingernails are grown in now, and baby can even scratch itself in utero!

DomerBaby is really active for most of the day. It's pretty fun. It hardly ever kicks or punches me in any uncomfortable areas - I'll get intermittent heartburn or find myself out of breath, but it's pretty rare.

I do wake up any time I roll over, but I'm still "sleeping through the night" in that I don't have to get up at all to eat/drink/pee. I guess I'll have a rude awakening when DomerBaby arrives! I've grown out of the majority of my maternity clothes. We went and bought a pair of stretchy black pants that I *think* will double as work and lounge pants for the next 6 weeks. Now I just need some flat shoes that are comfortable and look nicer than tennis shoes... it's getting close to time to retire my 3.5" heels I think.

I think that's about all... we have an appointment on Friday - we'll be 35w exactly. Home stretch! Once I get to 35 weeks, I think the home birth is a Go! Can you believe that Baby is almost here! I'm so excited to see if it's a boy or girl, and finally hold him/her in my arms!
