7 months

Posted on June 4th, 2012 by mountain girl  |  13 Comments »

Yesterday marked the end of the seventh month, and Wednesday will be the end of the 30th week (gestation). Thirty weeks down, eight to go!

In the past month, this little babe has become something of a bucking bronco. I was thinking it might be a girl, but lately I’ve been wondering if I might not have a rough-and-tumble little boy on my hands. I’ve been watching my belly go through all sorts of strange contortions. The baby’s head is on the left, and it will suddenly poke straight up, raising a little round lump on that side. Simultaneously, a foot will kick straight out, catching me under the right rib and making me jump. Ow!

Settle down, little babe. You’ve still got two months to go, two months to grow. After that you can kick and buck all you want!

    Beautiful belly! Are you being optimistic when you say 8 weeks to go? I always assume… she will go long (Bunny was 41 weeks)…so at 36 weeks I say: 2-6 weeks to go LOL

    Were you going by a 38-wk pregnancy for Bunny, which would make her 3 weeks late? Then that’s probably a good idea to give yourself some extra time with this due date. too.

    I was 38 weeks and 3 days with Zia. It could definitely be later this time, but just going by my past experience, I’m hoping to be on target.

    Anyway, if it is longer than that, I don’t want to think about that now. Come to think of it, I guess I am being optimistic!

    Hey lady! I read all your posts on Google Reader and there isn’t a way to comment. I thought I better head over and tell you I am still a faithful reader. So excited for you guys! Love your place and all the photos and all your fun homemade things!

    Hey Cass!
    It’s great to hear from you…I checked out your site and it looks awesome! Thanks for reading the blog…keep in touch!

    Hi Mia–I was counting from LMP for a 40 week pregnancy (my midwife calculates the same way) Are you going from OV date.. which would make a 38 week preg? So when (again causeI know I asked before) is your “due date”?

    Beautiful belly! Whenever I see one, I miss having one myself. šŸ™‚

    Yes, I’m counting from OV, making a 38-wk pregnancy. Having two ways to count makes it so confusing! My midwife also uses LMP, so I have to remember she is thinking 2 weeks differently than me.
    If you were going by a 40-week pregnancy, Bunny was only a week late, right? That’s not too long, although every day after the due date seems like a year! My due date is August 1st…we’ll see how close it is!

    I spent WAY too much time on your blog today, drooling over those fondant cakes! I just might be making one for Zia’s birthday next month. Love the Strawberry Shortcake one you did last year, too!

    Yes Bunny was only one week late.. which really wasn’t bad,, esp considering she was posterior. I really didn’t mind being “late” so that is why I tell people I am due in 2-6 weeks LOL (which actual due date being July 2.. depending on which calculator you use… some say June 3oth.. but again I am going with the latest to make me not so anxious lol) Either way we will both be holding babies very, very soon!

    Thanks for the great compliments! I have been feeling just a little hopelessly blown out of shape…so it is nice to hear your perspectives!
