I’m Lovin’ It – Yoda at Week 32*

I’m a day late and dollar short, but I had a super fun weekend. I’ll post details on that later. For now, let’s check in on Yoda Bear.

According to babygaga.com:

In the latest womb reports, your amazing baby has now developed sensitivity to temperature!

Which means you’re likely to get a swift kick if you put a hot pad or bag of ice on your ginormous belly.

For the Elton John lovers out there – baby’s got blue eyes.

Actually, even if you’re too young to know who Elton is,all babies have blue eyes at this point.

This could easily change after birth (or even between now and labor), but for the time being, blue it is.

Thanks to their recently matured lungs and a strengthening immune system, over 90% of babies born in their 32nd week survive!

So – go ahead and throw a mini-party right now because it’s pretty much a done deal – you’ve got a human-bean that’s going to make it!

That’s not to say you actually want your wee womb-squatter to pack their bags and move out now, because they’d still end up in the ICU for a good while, rather than in your arms at home.

Babies are best when fully baked!

This is why I was really happy about making 32 weeks. And so are my doctors! Now we just need to make it to 36 weeks and we’ll determine if Yoda will be a c-section or vaginal birth, depending on how the cerclage looks at that point.

And what size is Yoda this week?
