fresh air

34 weeks and 1 day today. Apparently 34 is another one of those "magic" numbers, meaning that something like 99% of babies born at/after 34 weeks generally do fine and the lungs are almost fully developed. Which means I can breathe a little easier because...

It's a little bit soon but I'm pretty sure G is dropping a little bit. I can actually (literally) take in a BIG breath of fresh air -- something I haven't been able to do for a couple of months now. Not a single kick in the ribs today and there is actually some space between the girls and the top of my belly. Lots of pressure which makes sitting and standing both pretty uncomfortable... awesome! As long as he's healthy and developed enough to make an appearance, I would be just fine with him coming a little sooner than January 11th. :) For the most part I have enjoyed my pregnancy and I definitely have not had much to complain or be worried about, but I am SO ready for this little guy to get here and give up residency inside my body! Plus I just can't stand the wait to meet him! :) (I'm sure I will say that a hundred more times before he gets here but I'm really getting too excited/nervous to even put into words.)
