"Turn on the radio and sway to the music. With her sense of movement well developed by now, your baby can feel you dance. And now that she's more than 11 inches long and weighs just over a pound (about as much as a large mango), you may be able to see her squirm underneath your clothes. Blood vessels in her lungs are developing to prepare for breathing, and the sounds that your baby's increasingly keen ears pick up are preparing her for entry into the outside world. Loud noises that become familiar now — such as your dog barking or the roar of the vacuum cleaner — probably won't faze her when she hears them outside the womb."
These are the best 2 of the 4 pictures they gave us today. I know it's hard to make out, but the babies are still very small, so it's hard to get detail. (For singleton pregnancies, 3D's are usually done near the end of the pregnancy - about 35 weeks.)
Todd has been busy working in the nursery. Yes, I said nursery, not junk room. He got the room cleared out, we painted, and he put together a crib the other day and put another crib together tonight. We have heard horror stories about the difficulty of putting together cribs, but these were surprisingly simple to put together. I am thrilled with the cribs. I think they are so good-looking and sturdy. Here are a few pictures of our (mostly Todd's) efforts.
Todd's all smiles :-)
I edged around the doors and baseboards.
