Three Makes Five

29 weeks 1 day

I redid my blog, which is quite obvious. I love the way it turned out. I did it in a lazy way, since I'm not really familiar with HTML (can only do the basics); I downloaded the graphics and overwrote them to ensure I had the right size for everything. Have to wonder if it's technically ethical, but oh well. I'm not stealing anyone's bandwidth. Just the HTML that Blogger provided me for free, so I guess it's OK.

But this isn't a blog about HTML. It's a blog about pregnancy.

This particular belly shot is from last week, I just never got around to uploading it here. I am now quite obviously pregnant. What a difference a month makes, eh? I was wearing today a dress I haven't worn since the early days of my pregnancy, and it no longer hangs on me. Not on my tummy, anyway. It's quite tight across there. I like it, actually. I realize most strangers probably think I'm a fat chick with no fashion sense, as I'm trying to show off my belly. But I don't honestly care.

It feels as if my fundus is maybe two fingers below my sternum. I haven't been able to comfortably bend over from the waist for quite some time now, and I'm losing the ability to sleep comfortably in most positions.

Pregnancy Updates from Online:

The baby's head is in proportion to the rest of the body, and fat is continuing to accumulate.
The brain can control primitive breathing and can also somewhat regulate body temperature.
The eyes can move in the sockets, and the baby has started to develop a sense of smell.
The baby can not only detect light, but will move his head towards any source of light. (This must be where the advice to shine a bright light down by your crotch in order to turn a breech baby comes from!)
Baby's bone marrow is completely in charge of red blood cell production.
Baby pees about a half-liter into the amniotic fluid every day (by the end of pregnancy, amniotic fluid is mostly baby pee).
Baby weighs in at about 2.5 pounds and is 15 inches long.

No interest in getting up from the computer to measure my uterus. I'm still going to be measuring ahead, LOL.
