Baby Acker Update 02/20/16

For anyone that is keeping track I am 36 weeks along now!!!  How is this possible that this pregnancy has passed us by so quickly?!

36 weeks!

36 weeks!

I went to the doctor on Wednesday and she said that everything seems to be progressing normally.  The doctor doesn’t actually do much at the appointments other than measure my belly with a tape measure haha and listen to the baby’s heartbeat.  Then she answers my unending questions about what to expect.  Yesterday Cole and I took a birthing class and we both left a little traumatized.  We are both terrified of labor haha.

According to my handy dandy pregnancy app baby girl is currently about 19-22 inches and 6 lbs and they compare her to a large cantaloupe.  Her liver and kidneys are now in working order, she’s gaining more fat, and her skin is smoothing out.  She is pretty much ready to make her arrival!  I feel her move so much now and it is an incredible feeling.  These last few weeks have been my favorite part of pregnancy because I can finally feel her a lot (I couldn’t at first because of the placement of my placenta).  I’ve been in a lot of pain with my hips but when I feel her move I forget about the pain.  Cole gets to feel her moving sometimes but she tends to be shy.  That might be a sign of how she will be outside of the womb too…I’m excited to meet her and find out!

Since I haven’t posted since week 20 I wanted to add some fun pics from my first baby shower and our 3D ultrasound that we had done when we visited Arkansas.  It was so fun because we surprised my mom with taking her to the ultrasound.

It’s over 13 minutes but here is the video from the ultrasound if anyone wants to check it out.

And one last one…the nursery is starting to come together.  Putting the crib up tonight made baby girl’s arrival feel very real!

    Love the update. She’ll be here so soon. So exciting. I know the labor sounds scary, but you are a tough little mama and will do awesome. Will all be worth it when you hear that cry. 🙂 The nursery is looking good. I can’t wait to meet her and to see you again. Love you😘👶🏼
