Baby #2- 34 weeks!

Five weeks to go... and we've done NOTHING!!! We started TODAY getting Ruthie's new room ready- so our nursery will be free for Baby #2!!! My brother came over to help us and they are working away!! Pictures to come!!

Baby #2 was breach until yesterday- when she turned the right way. It really doesn't matter because we will be having a c-section anyway. That is scheduled for March 27th!!! I can't believe that in about a month my little girl number 2 will be in my arms!! My baby shower is next weekend- and I can't wait- I think it will be a lot of fun! :)

This is what Baby Center says about 34 weeks!

Your baby now weighs about 4 3/4 pounds (like your average cantaloupe) and is 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 skin is also smoother than ever. Her central nervous system is maturing and her lungs are continuing to mature as well. If you've been nervous about preterm labor, you'll be happy to know that babies born between 34 and 37 weeks who have no other health problems generally do fine. They may need a short stay in the neonatal nursery and may have a few short-term health issues, but in the long run, they usually do as well as full-term babies.
