Month 8

And Squirt is as big as a honeydew…..

Squirt’s senses are continuing to improve — when light peeks in through my (extremely) stretched belly, those tiny eyelids and irises blink and dilate. And, Squirt can now recognize and react to simple songs… time to start practicing my lullabies, or in our case PSU football songs! Growth (at least inside my womb) is starting to slow, and I may notice Squirt descend into my pelvis at the end of this month.  (Actually, I’ve already noticed Squirt moving on down toward the pelvis.)  There’s been quite a bit of pressure there recently.

We’ve just past the point at which Rylee was born.  That’s a good thing.  Tomorrow I will be 35 weeks.  On Dec. 29th I was told that Squirt was measuring at 5lb 7oz.  That’s bigger than Rylee was at birth at 34.5 weeks.  That also means this baby is gonna be quite a bit bigger than Rylee was.  I just hope the growth does slow a bit so that I’m not delivering a big 9lb+ baby.  Bill was a big baby, so it is a possibility!  Ouch.
