34 weeks and Keifer picks HER American Idol

Thirty - four weeks. Six weeks until my due date. Unfrickingbelievable. reports that: How your baby's growing: Your baby now weighs about 4 3/4 pounds and is probably almost 18 inches long. Her fat layers — which she'll need to regulate her body temperature once she's born — are filling her out, making her rounder. Her central nervous system is still maturing and her lungs are well developed by now. If you've been nervous about going into preterm labor, you'll be happy to know that 99 percent of babies this age can survive outside the womb — and most have no major long-term problems related to prematurity.

It's amazing to me that my baby is about 5 pounds inside of me. No wonder I can barely breathe after huffing up a flight of stairs! Now that the freezing weather has temporarily passed, I've been walking the fur kids on their loop (around the townhome complex) again, and trying to get back into the mode of SOME EXERCISE! I get plenty at work in the mornings with the kids I work with, but I'm not too happy that I haven't kept up a regular exercise routine throughout this pregnancy, like I always said I would.

I was on the couch watching the girls on American Idol sing last night, and during contestant #4, Sabrina Sloan, Keifer started kicking, shaking, and making my entire belly move and shake. It was so funny, because then she stopped and was pretty quiet most of the night. Later, as the recap for voting was being shown, when they showed a clip of Sabrina with her number to vote, Keifer then gave one big, giant KICK, as if to say , "I like HER, mommy". It sounds unbelievable, but was true! I could NOT stop laughing about this!

I was not a very pleasant girl last night - we are dealing with daycare dilemmas and I told CJ last night I felt like a caged cougar, pacing and nowhere to go. LOL. (*where I got that analogy, I have no idea!*) I've just been crabby,and restless, and now I'm upset that the daycare we liked might not take us - that's a whole different story -but its stress I don't want or need.

And CJ picked up our swivel rocker and ottoman last night! YAY! His brother, Corey, came over and helped him lug it upstairs, and they took the guest bed out of that room, and also brought up our other chest, that my MIL had found at a sale months ago. It is looking very nice in the nursery -- all we need is our crib from my friends who are giving us their crib in a few weeks! (*and my friend's friend will be coming in a few weeks to paint mural on the walls! YAY*) Sage and Treble were a bit nervous about it all, especially Sage. She seemed especially traumatized that "her" bed was being taken away; she lays on a chiropractic pillow every day (in the curve of it) up in the window - her "window on the world". Poor girl, I hope she adjusts. We put her pillow on the ottoman, which also has a window view (as does the rocker) but she was nervous. *sigh*.

Ah, the beloved "doggie" bed is gone. Sigh. The bed we threw up all over. LOL

"Caged cougar", eh? You've been watching too much American're starting to sound like Simon with his analogies. HA HA!

So glad to hear everything is coming together. Good luck with the daycare issue! Keep me posted!! You know I'd watch her if I lived there! :-)
