Blood vessels in his lungs are developing to prepare for breathing, and the sounds that your baby's increasingly keen ears pick up are preparing him for entry into the outside world. Loud noises that become familiar now — such as your dog barking or the roar of the vacuum cleaner — probably won't faze him when he hears them outside the womb.
Best Moment this Week
This weekend was our anniversary! We didn't really get to celebrate on the day of, because I was in a wedding for my friend Lindsey (which was beautiful!), but the first song that they played at the reception was our wedding song, so we got to dance to it which was special. :) We get to go out to dinner tomorrow night as a belated anniversary dinner.
BOY! Jack Wesley.
I'm feeling more movement now as he continues to get bigger & take up more space (I think we had a big growth spurt over the past two weeks) but he's still pretty chill & so far doesn't seem as strong or forceful as Elliot was.
Hmm, can't think of any from this past week...
Sleeping is starting to get less comfortable, which is a bummer.
What I am looking forward to
Honestly... I'm looking forward to when Jack is a couple of months old. I have a feeling some moms will agree... we have some transitions to get through before then, & none of them sound very fun! I am looking forward to being settled in as a family of four, & getting back to normal (non-pregnant) life!
Fatigue, back pain, cramping (I didn't know that after your first pregnancy, ligament pains can be much worse - I went in to the midwives for the cramping which turned out to be normal, but was part of that growth spurt I mentioned earlier)
