32 Weeks! A milestone.

This week we reached the original goal that was set from the very start of this whole thing.
My Dr wanted us to at least make it to 32 weeks with this baby boy still inside.And well, here we are, still going strong, and he is still baking away, obviously nice and comfy.
It felt good to walk into the room to see Dr Dunn and know we had made it. He is as surprised as i am at the achievement. No one expected me to still be pregnant at this stage, and doing as well as we have.
At the appointment, i saw Carter again, he is still just on average size wise, except his head is slightly more in front than the rest of him, lol, so in that sense, he is like his dad!
I dont care, as long as that means the boy is as smart as his dad and his lots of space for useful knowledge over the years.
So congrats to us! For getting this far, and still going strong.

Week 32
Yours baby is up to 3.75 pounds (1702grams) now and is 16.7 inches (42.4cm) long.
You might notice she's not moving around as much now. Don't worry! She is fine -- just running short on room. She still has plenty of growing to do though, believe it or not!
All five senses are working. Your little one is fascinated and practicing testing these out as much as possible!
Toenails are completely formed even though she may not be quite ready for a French manicure.
Hair on your infant's head continues to grow in. Will he have dad's black hair or your red hair?
Brain scans have shown that babies have periods of dream sleep (REM) starting around the eight month. What do you suppose your son is dreaming about?
