Fully Cooked

Today Spudly is officially fully cooked and ready to come out of the roasting tin. Somehow I think he feels he needs to be a bit crispier....

So here's an updated belly picture, taken at 36 weeks. I am actually bigger now.



We went and had some 3D ultrasound piccies done this week too. There's only one clinic in this state that does them and its purely for "bonding", so naturally you pay through the nose. It was soooo worth it. He looks like a little person rather than some transparent shadowy alien type creature.



He looks like Monkey Boy when he's asleep and scowls like me.

In addition, he is also a circus freak. How else can you explain the ability to scratch his nose with his big toe?



My hospital bags are almost ready. Spudly's head was 3/5 past the pelvic brim a week ago, and the Braxton-Hickses are far more regular and insistent of my attention now. It would also appear that the placenta is (touch wood) out of the way. Is that crunching I hear???

Ooooh...holy crap its all Getting A Bit Real.

  10. You look beautiful. I am desperate to get one of those 3d scans. I have a normal one at 34 weeks but I think I need to get a 3D one...

Comments make blogging a conversation, rather than mere self-indulgent navel-gazing. Look at that big empty space down there...just waiting for your thoughts.
