Back and Forth

I have recently started the late pregnancy bathroom trips. Twice a night now I wake up, and head off to the bathroom. Luckily, we have an ensuite–it’s a real lifesaver. I’ve heard many people say that these trips are nature’s way of preparing you for interrupted sleep. I’m not sure it’s the same thing, but I guess we’ll see.

This week, the baby is about 11 inches from crown-to-rump, or 15 1/2 inches from head-to-toe. The kid weighs in at about 3 1/4 pounds. Apparently, the baby’s brain is going through rapid development. At this point, the baby is pretty much fully formed, but the lungs are still immature. Also, the baby is big enough now that I can feel individual body parts. Sometimes I’ll just feel a hand or foot trace its way across my abdomen. So, my kid has limbs, which is a good thing.
