Pregnancy Highlights!

Pregnancy Highlights:

How Far Along: 29 weeks!

Size of baby: 
Your baby's the size of an acorn squash!

Baby already measures about 15.2 to 16.7 inches long. Right now, we weighs about 2.5 to 3.8 pounds but he's still got a ways to go -- can you believe he'll triple in weight before birth?

Baby Development This Week: 

  • He's getting a little cramped in there, since he's growing so fast. But you probably already realize that, since you're getting all those jabs and kicks.
  • He's growing white fat deposits under his skin, and his energy is surging because of it.
  • Feel a subtle twitch? It might be baby hiccupping.
.Maternity Clothes: Regular shirts, stretchy capris, and skirts. Bra size is still everchanging…lol. I got my first pair of maternity bottoms, a maternity dress for our upcoming maternity shoot, and a bathing suit. J

Gender: IT’S A BOY! John Declan Leviner! He will be called Declan. Declan is of Irish origin and means full of goodness. J

Movement: He loves to kick when I’m on the verge of falling asleep, I would be annoyed, but it’s too stinkin cute!

Sleep: It’s been okay, not great.

What I miss: Just being able to fit into my old clothes.
Cravings: Sandwiches and Orange Juice (not necessarily together…lol)

Symptoms: backaches, fatigued, Braxton hicks, shortness of breath, leg cramps

Best Moment this week: John’s stepmother calling and telling us that they are getting us a car seat! With my mom and family getting us a crib already, two of our big ticket items are taken care of and we are so thankful! J


  1. Thank you so much for following Carole's Chatter. I will now add you to my blog list as well.
    Have a nice day.

  2. Wow, he's big now!! It's amazing how fast they grow. Can't believe my lil one will be that big in less than 10 weeks...

    Gotta love family members! Mine have helped me out so much with baby stuff. :)

  3. So exciting! I loved getting all the baby stuff. I'm not gonna lie I came really close to putting my cat in a onesie I thought was particularly cute just to put it on something. Enjoy your pregnancy!

  4. Wow...not too much longer!

  5. That's really sweet of your in-laws! He is getting so big! I can't wait to meet him!!!!!
