Week: 38-39
Title: No room
Wrote...  Sorry Mummy, I know you are not feeling well this week and it's sort of my fault.  It is very tight in here now, so much so I can hardly bend my fingers to type so this is likely my last blog from the womb.  I will continue blogging after I am born.

Title: Ribs
Wrote...  There's not a lot of room left in here now.  I have to put my foot under Mum's rib which has not been very comfy for her.  Mummy has been feeling a bit sick as a result of my positioning... Sorry Mum.

Now will you get the hint and please pack your hospital bag!

Title: Footprint
Wrote...  I have now developed a unique footprint!  I look forward to seeing it via paint prints.

I am now hogging all the space in here.  It's starting to be a bit tight.  I am practising sucking, breathing, blinking, turning my head, grabbing things, and stretching out my legs.

- Oh dear Mummy had a problem this week when her finger swelled up so much that she couldn't get her ring off.  It hurt her quite a lot and she has tried to get the ring of since.  Any suggestions...  Please e-mail my Mummy by clicking on this link...  oh_dear_mummys_got_her_ring_stuck_but_I_know_just_the_solution@spenceshire.net

Title: Alcohol
Wrote...  Mummy and Daddy enjoy going to a fresh expression emerging church called Sanctus 1 (www.sanctus1.co.uk).  This week when they went I felt well relaxed during a time of meditating on the names of God.  Then, Mummy had communion.  This was my first taste of Alcohol and it went straight to my head!  I danced and danced and danced. 

All I need to finish my womb growth now is more surfactant to coat my lungs and some more fat.  I am now starting to focus on things like this long cord thing that has me connected to Mum.

  I weigh about 1.9kg (that's 4lbs 3oz) and am about 29cm from head to bum.

Title: hiccups
Wrote...  Thanks for your suggestions for hiccups...  I have tried the following on your recommendations:-

"It sounds silly but we don't know if you're a girl or a boy! Have a giggle at that, maybe it will get rid of those hiccups" - Beckie (Frome)

"Dear baby,
Our advice for less hiccups are to drink less amniotic fluid and drink from the placenta upside down" Sam&Mark (New Zealand)

 

Thanks...  Keep them coming!

Title: head movements
Wrote...  Now I've got eye lashes to go with my eye brows.  Mascara needed please!  The midwife says that my head and bottom are at the front of mum and so as I move from side to side mummy and daddy can see my head move around like if you blow into your cheek and then release it to the other....  You are trying it, aren't you!

My breathing rhythm is developing steadily and my heart beat is sounding stronger.  Daddy says he can now pick out my heartbeat amongst the placenta noise, although he says it's not yet up to broadcast standard!
