My Quote

"Maybe our mistakes are what makes our fate. Without them, what would shape our lives? Perhaps if we never veered off course we wouldn't fall in love, or be who we are. After all seasons change. So do cities. People come in our lives and people go. But it's comforting...the ones you love are always in your heart. And if you're lucky, always will be."-Miranda Brogdon

31 weeks!!!

Dear Reader,

This week,  I measure just over 16 inches long and weigh about 3.3 pounds (try carrying four navel oranges) and am heading into a growth spurt. I can turn my head from side to side, and my arms, legs, and body are beginning to plump out as needed fat accumulates underneath my skin. I'm probably moving a lot, too, so mommy may have trouble sleeping because my  kicks and somersaults may keep her up. Take comfort: All this moving is a sign that I am active and healthy.

Also mommy has been having mild contractions and went to the hospital night before last and was hooked up to monitors for hours where they said that I looked like I was doing great and her contractions were touch and go but not so bad that it would harm me. Mommy has 9 more weeks left but at this point it really could be anytime that I make my sweet arrival!
