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.
