Thirty-Four Weeks

Okay, so I know this post is coming just three days after the last "weekly" update, but I'm supposed to be writing them on Thursdays, so I've got to have a short week at some point to catch up!

So, thirty-four weeks:

Caleb weighs 4.75 pounds and is almost 18 inches long! He's now past the "worry zone" and will most likely be born healthy, even if he's born today! He might have a little more lung development needed, but babies born this early generally have no trouble catching up. Jon's baby book says he was born 3-5 weeks premature, at 5 pounds, 11 ounces, and he turned out just fine! As a side note, if Jon were exactly 5 weeks early, his due date was the day before my birthday!

In other news, I busted out my Pilates video this morning. And yes, it's the first time I've done it since the last time I mentioned it on this blog. (I'd find that post and link to it for you, but then I'd know exactly how long it's been, and I don't want to know that.) Anyway, the bends and stretches are not so easy any more! There's something called a belly getting in my way! I'm really missing being able to bend over, or (sigh) roll onto my stomach at night.... Those were the days!

Caleb has gotten all kinds of hiccups over the last couple of days! Yesterday I was in a meeting at work, and he hiccuped for about 15 minutes of the meeting. I thought sure everyone must be noticing my twitching belly, but no one did. They're not as transfixed by my rotund self as I am, I suppose.

And that's about it for the three-day update! I've been out of town the whole time with work, so not much baby-related went on.

More next week!


  1. I'm still up for doing your photos sometime if you still want me too and you haven't found anyone else yet! :)
    I can take them all with my camera and do all the editing and snazzing up and then get you a pic. CD! :)
    Just a thought.....I know delivery is baring down fast upon you! LOL

  2. Actually, Jon was due when John was born..isn't that uncanny!

    Glad that things are okay at the moment; an uneventful pregnancy is a good thing!

    Stay as comfortable as you can...
