I just read an article on babycenter.com (coolest place to go for week-by-week information on pregnancy) and they have this article on what Dads should expect for labor. It talks all about contractions and how to time them. I read it and it is totally freaking me out – so I’m sure it’s going to freak Wes out.
It goes on and on about the stages of labor. I have decided, after a thorough investigation of labor, that I don’t want any part of it.
So there! No seriously – can I just say “no thank you” I don’t really want to go into labor. There’s got to be an easier way to have a baby than all this….
Oh PS – babycenter.com (who is alway right) said that at 31 weeks I am to expect to be pummeled tirelessly by my kid. Well done, Holden – you’re right on track obviously.
31 Weeks How your baby’s growing:
This week, your baby measures about 16 inches long. He weighs a little over 3 pounds and is heading into a growth spurt. He can turn his head from side to side, and his arms, legs, and body are beginning to plump out as needed fat accumulates underneath his skin. He’s probably moving a lot, too, so you may have trouble sleeping because your baby’s kicks and somersaults keep you up. Take comfort: All this moving is a sign that your baby is active and healthy.
