This week our baby is around 5lbs and could be as tall as 20inches. We are having an ultrasound on Friday, so will know more about how big the baby actually is then. Not much going on with baby this week. If our baby is a boy, his testicles are descending from his abdomen to his scrotum this week. Also our baby's fingernails are now reaching the end of his or her tiny fingers.
I am trying to keep cool in this hot weather. I am not too bothered by it yet but am more tired and short of breath and have some feet swelling. The doctor's appointment this morning was uneventful. I have gained 27lbs and am measuring 35cm today. I am a little nervous about the ultrasound on Friday. On one hand, a c-section at this point doesn't sound half bad, but I know a vaginal birth would be better. Whatever is best for baby and I is what I want. We shall see which way it will go after Friday's ultrasound.
