I had another visit to the midwife mid week and all seems to be going well. Blood pressure fine, urine sample normal, weight gain checked (I closed my eyes), baby kicking fine and heart beat sounded lovely, bump measuring ok too so on the right track anyway. The baby should now be around 5 1/4lbs in weight and will put on around an ounce a week until birth. My son was just shy of 10lb when he was born so I'll be surprised if this baby weighs less than 8lbs. Not long to wait and see though. According to the online baby development websites, most of the basic physical developments are now complete and it's only really weight the baby has to put on. They also say my uterus has grown to around 15 times it's original volume and is tucked up under my ribs, no wonder I struggle to breathe sometimes.
I still haven't packed my blooming hospital bag and I'm constantly thinking about it so must really get a move on. Anyway, roll on this weekend and Logan's birthday celebrations.
