“Nobody puts baby in the corner…”

Dirty Dancing – ONE OF THE BEST MOVIES EVERY MADE!!! You know it is an amazing movie when you can continue to use lines from it 21 years later!! As Patrick Swayze put it, "Nobody puts baby in a corner!" Doubly true for my little tenant, Princess Peanut. She has pretty much taken over my entire torso by now. Over the past few months, she's squished and mushed all of my organs out of the way (including my bladder). Any day now, she'll make a final move and shove my heart up and to the left to make more room for herself. (See, she's got my heart in her hands already.) Ahhhhh…..

Before I became prego, my uterus was the size of a small orchard apple and was tucked away behind my pelvis. Well, today my uterus is the size of a small WATERMELON and reaches all the way up near my ribs!!

1/6 of my body’s total blood volume is chugging around in the vessels in my uterus!! Isn’t that amazing?? Gotta keep her healthy and growing….

"Oh Romeo..."

Ready for the FINAL performance -- after Patrick says, "Nobody puts Baby in the corner."

"I've had the time of my life.... and I owe it all to you...."

Ok, so enough of the Dirty Dancing Flashbacks.... I just want to go watch the movie RIGHT NOW!!!

This week in the news….
Week 35
- Peanut continues to pack on the pounds!
- She should be over 18 inches long and weight over 5 ½ lbs.
- She continues to kick and move around thankfully, she has kept her little head parked down in my pelvic region. We don’t need her moving around!! Face down ‘lil one!
- She has started a new little routine during the day, “Bladder dancing!” She is getting pretty good at it too!! No matter if I have just gone to the bathroom, she will situate herself to find a way to make me feel like I have to go again!!
- Her kidneys are fully developed.
- Her liver can process some waste products! Now we get to look forward to those first 1-2 diapers!! Black tar baby!!
- Her nails are growing and she will probably need a manicure upon exiting her “oven.”
