First of all, I'm glad to see some of you are really getting into the birth stats betting
guessing facebook group
.� It's been fun to track all of your (sometimes quirky) guesses.� And while I doubt I'm going to give birth to a manbearpig
(I guess this is what I get for the pambearpig nickname), a demigod
or Paul Bunyan
, I can see where you're all coming from.� Given that James was almost 11 pounds at birth, I suppose it's not that
Although it may not take five storks to drop off Baby Lump at my doorstep, he/she has done some growing in the past week.� Little lump should now measure about 13� 1/2 inches in length and weight approximately 1� 1/2 pounds.
What's even more intriguing is that his/her eyelids are no longer fused shut (not that Baby Lump can see anything in the darkness of the womb, anyway), and his/her lungs are now capable of breathing air!� This means that although Baby Lump is taking in tiny breaths of fluid in the womb, he/she could now breathe outside the womb without medical assistance.
You may have noticed from my baby bump photos
that I've decided to start taking pictures from a full-body perspective.� Based on the fact that some of you have been questioning whether I'm actually taking photos of my knee and not my belly, I figured it was time for a change.� I think you will all get a better idea of how big Baby Lump is getting from this perspective.
Maybe you'll all also agree that Baby Lump is definitely not Paul Bunyan material.Oven Timer:
