37 week belly shot

Posted by Greg on May 14th, 2009 with tags: ,

Today Yenari reached a major milestone – she is now 37 weeks pregnant…officially full-term!  Tomorrow is Yenari’s last day at work before her pregnancy leave starts, so the countdown is nearing zero.  The baby is definitely moving a lot, and pushing up against all sides – we can easily see her moving around and shaking, and feel her feet pushing the limits of belly stretching!

Yenari hates these photos, but I’m posting them anyway – if you don’t hear from me soon, I may be in trouble!

We went to the doctor on Thursday – we’re up to an appointment every two weeks now.  She checked the baby’s heart beat with the doppler – everything sounded good, but was having having trouble figuring out how the baby was positioning so she did a super quick ultrasound – woo hoo!  She was worry that the baby might be the breached position – the baby can still move around now, but at this point they hope the baby’s head will be pointing down.  Luckily she was pointing down and in perfect position.  The doctor said “looks like it’s still a girl” which was good.  She also gave us a closeup shot of her face – she was looking slightly less alien-like – almost like a real person!  Her lips were moving around like she was chewing – like mother, like daughter!  Unfortunately the doctor didn’t print out any of these ultrasound shots, but it was still an very nice unexpected surprise…

By popular request (ok, just one request from Sarah W) here is another belly shot!  22 weeks and a couple days:

When I asked Yenari what to write, her response was (a mere 4 seconds ago): ‘belly is getting big’.  The belly isn’t getting too big, but Yenari does think she’s transforming into a whale.  In exciting baby news, the little belly tenant is kick kick kicking away and moving around a lot.  I’ve finally been able to feel her movements which is really exciting.   She’s been kicking hard enough that she wakes Yenari up every morning at 7am – she’s a morning fetus…and since Yenari works the evening shift and sets her alarm for 1pm, 7am is a tad bit early.  I’m just hoping she continues to be a morning baby – much better than a baby working the night shift…

As of yesterday Yenari’s now 19 weeks through her pregnancy – almost halfway there and with a brand new haircut!  Here she is:

And now stepping back a week, here’s Yenari receiving breakfast in bed on her birthday – December 31st.  The gourmet menu I put together included six slices of french toast with syrup and cinnamon sugar, eight (!) pieces of bacon, and a glass of orange juice.
