I have been pregnant for 26 weeks now. Wow, in less than 14 weeks we should be parents! Or perhaps we’re already parents, for months now we have been taking care of and sometimes have even worried about the health of our little unborn boy. That sounds pretty parent-y to me.
As you can see from our reading materials we’re also doing our baby homework by reading up about what to expect and what best to do during pregnancy and beyond. Of course, the What To Expect book is a classic, there’s so much information in there. I tried just reading it as it is, but I find it more useful as a look-up book.
If you’re pregnant, I would really recommend the What To Expect app. I downloaded it on my iPhone for free and I love it. It guides me through pregnancy day-by-day. It knows my due date and feeds me personalized daily updates about my pregnancy, parenting news and tips, health information, latest results on pregnancy and baby research, and it also has a forum community where you can connect with other parents-to-be. My absolute favorite thing is the weekly video about the baby’s development, which shows us what the baby looks like in the womb and how it moves. Every Saturday is when a new week of pregnancy starts for me, so I always start my weekend off by watching the new video, I look forward to it every week!
This is what he’s supposed to look like this week, according to the What to Expect app. This Saturday we’re going to have a 3D/4D scan to see for ourselves. We’re so curious and excited to see his little face. You can see he is starting to fill up my uterus and that’s why I can feel him a lot. Every move, kick, or stomp he makes is another happy moment reminding me of what’s to come in April.
