Butternut Squash- Week 34
This week you are the size of a butternut squash! You weigh about 4.2-5.8 pounds and are 17.2-18.7 inches long. You recognize and react to simple songs and my voice. Your fat is starting to round you out and your skin is becoming smoother. About 6 weeks to go! This week we met with Dr. Matt Irwin- a family practice holistic doctor who will be your pediatrician. He is in Old Towne but his office was easy to get to. He's nice and down to earth- we probably won't be seeing him much but if we need to he's going to be a good doc. We also had the birthday planning meeting at Birthcare. They talked about what to expect, what to have ready and when to call them. You are getting closer and closer to being here- although I still feel like you are so far away from being here. 6 weeks is still a long time! This week we also have our maternity photo shoot! Yay! Took a bit to find the right outfits but I am excited to see how the photos turn out- Jeni (our photographer) has had some great sessions lately! Hopefully next week we will have a preview of a few shots.
Still done up from photo shoot so we snapped a quick pic before dinner
