Pregnancy Highlights!

 Pregnancy Highlights:

How Far Along: 33 weeks!

Size of baby: 
Your baby's the size of a durian!

He weighs about 4.2 to 5.8 pounds and measures about 17.2 to 18.7 inches. And he may grow up to a full inch this week -- amazing.

Baby Development This Week: 
·         .He's keeping his eyes open while awake.
·         He's also starting to coordinate breathing with sucking and swallowing.
·         His bones are hardening.
·         And he going through (more) major brain development -- that's one smart baby!

Maternity Clothes: Regular shirts, stretchy capris/maternity bottoms.

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’s still kicking and moving, but is running out of space. He will be here before we know it!

Sleep: I sleep whenever I can, but I usually only get 3-4 hours of sleep at a time…sometimes I get lucky and it’s more than that.

What I miss:  Some foods and drinks, but mostly being able to lean over to pick up things without feeling huge and weird.
Cravings: Mostly salty foods.

Symptoms: heartburn, harder to move around and lean over, backaches, fatigue, feet swelling.

Best Moment this week: Our maternity session and Georgia baby shower! J
