Wow…32 weeks! It’s hard to believe we only have about 8 weeks left to go before our sweet baby girl arrives! She’s now up to about 3.75 pounds and about 16.7 inches long.
I can tell she is taking up more space inside me because her movements are so much stronger and more noticeable in the past couple of weeks. I often look down and marvel at the undulating landscape that is my growing belly while she jabs, kicks, and somersaults in there. While some women find it strange or disturbing to see or feel so much action from the baby inside them, I absolutely LOVE it! I find myself involuntarily putting my hand to my belly when I feel her, looking down to see her movements, and becoming completely distracted by my fascination and love for her.
Zakk has been able to see her movements, too. He says it’s a little weird, but I think he likes it. Last Friday night, we played with her by shining a flashlight on my belly and she responded by pushing back at the light. Then we tried music. Apparently she likes to Rock the Casbah with The Clash and wanted to find out Who the amazing musicians David Byrne & St. Vincent are because she was rocking out to those songs. It was amazing to be able to interact with her and it made me fall even more in love with both my sweet baby girl and my loving husband.
