35 weeks and feelin’ fine

Mom says that this week I am 35 weeks old, and that all the growth I’m experiencing is preparing me for my arrival.

At mom’s appointment this week, the doctor said that I am already a good-sized boy. Mom said that I am supposed to be about five and a half pounds, but doctor thinks that I am a bit bigger than that. He says that since I’m developing and growing so well that I really could make my appearance anytime now! I know that mom and dad are getting a bit scared and worried about my arrival, but I’m getting pretty excited!

Mom also found out that I’m now upside down, which means that my feet are up near mom’s ribs. I’ve noticed that when I kick and move, that I seem to be hurting mom a little bit more. I don’t want to hurt her, but sometimes I need to stretch a little bit–or sometimes I just want to dance! Mom really likes to listen to music, and she even dances around the house (but always when dad’s not looking). When she does this, I can’t help but join in too…it’s so much fun. I can’t wait for us to dance together when I’m on the outside.

It may be dark, but there’s a lot going on…

I’ve been quite comfortably living inside of mom’s womb for 29 weeks now. Mom and dad keep talking about what’s going to happen when I come out, but I don’t know what that means, and I’m not sure I want to. I quite like it in here. Although it’s dark, I’m very comfortable, and I have more than enough room to move around. Right now one of my favourite things to do is dance…especially when mom is dancing too! She seems to really like what she calls her “90’s throwback dance tunes.” And although when I get too excited and dance too much, she complains a little bit, I think that she likes when I dance too…it’s a reminder that I’m still around.

Aside from dancing, mom seems to be a pretty busy lady. She always seems to be moving! But, I like when she moves–it always helps me sleep. This weekend, mom went for what she calls a run. Although I can’t quite figure out what she’s doing, because it feels different than dancing, I like the way it feels. Actually, every time she does this, I have a great nap! But, when she stops and I wake up, I’m sure to let her know that I’m awake and ready to dance! And the fun starts all over again!

Something else mom and dad like to do is something they call footy matches. A while IMG_0131after mom went for her run, she and dad went to a footy match–something they called TFC. It seems like a lot of fun, but it sure was noisy! The whole time they were there, mom and dad were singing, yelling and mom ate something called a poutine. It was delicious–maybe my favourite thing to eat yet! I wonder if I can let mom know that I want more of that. Something I’ll have to work on!

I’d really like to figure out what footy means, since dad insists that my dancing is actually kicking and that I am going to be a footy star. I guess we’ll just have to wait and see–maybe once I’m out, we’ll be able to figure it all out!
