Lyla is definitely growing. It seems like she's getting bigger every day. Her ears must be growing too because she has started noticing loud noises much more easily. When we were at the lake for the 4th of July, the neighbors set off fireworks and she freaked out and started to try and kick her way out of my belly! She also notices when we have the radio too loud in the car and will start tossing and turning. I'm convinced that our voices are soothing to her. When we drove home from the lake, I read Breaking Dawn to Tyler the whole way (my voice was about gone after 15 hours), but she slept the entire way - she loved it :) This baby is pretty amazing.
After weeks of kicking the crap out of me, Tyler FINALLY was able to feel her kick!! He was pretty dang excited. I cant wait until I am spooning him and he can feel her kick him in the back.
Lyla's baby shower is coming August 14! We don't have many details planned yet, but we have decided that it will be for both ladies and guys. We wouldn't want the boys to miss out on all the baby shower fun :) More details to come!!
Week 25: Turn it around... and aroundFetal development in pregnancy week 25: fetus in sixth month Your little grower’s physical proportions are evening out at this point and most of their remaining development will largely be weight gain and lots and lots of nervous system development. The good news is: if your child is born premature now they’ll be more likely to survive without too much trauma as their lungs began to produce “surfactant” last week, which means their tiny respiratory system is getting stronger with each passing day. Yes, now’s a good time for a minor sigh of relief and a quick pat on the back. All that hard work and conscientious living is really getting your child prepared for a healthy delivery. Keep up the fabulous work mama! This week they’ll be scootching slowly out of the old breech position and start rotating (already!) into a better position for exit during their birth. Their head and feet are slowly rotating so that the head is pointed down towards the birth canal. Time is short (or really long, depending on who you ask)—just (still!) 14 weeks left before you can go back to being a single-resident human.
