Baby girl has had quite the growth spurt this past week. At least my belly sure seems to be showing such. At 33 weeks, our babe is the size of a durian fruit (I have no idea what kind of fruit that is- hence why I took the easy way out and skipped this week's drawing again). She has passed the 4lb mark and is a little over 17 inches long! Though still tiny, now we are getting very close to the size of babies I've cared for- making this feel much more real.
This past weekend included a beautiful work baby shower. Such a blessing to be showered with love.
Andrew finishes his last week as a 3rd year Medical Student on Friday and then begins an intense study period for his 2nd round of board testing. We've had a few chats with baby girl about not coming prior to his exam. Hopefully she'll obey.
I continue to feel exhausted- especially after my 12 hour shifts. Whew- they certainly take it out of me. And, I'm pretty sure I could win an Oscar for my getting out of bed routine in the morning/middle of the night and looking like a 90 year old. I've got that down pretty good. But overall, doing well and thankful that baby girl is growing and healthy.
We are praying for a healthy next few weeks and continue to thank God for our sweet little miracle baby each day. 49 days to go, folks!
