Pregnancy Highlights!

Pregnancy Highlights:

How Far Along: 34 weeks!

Size of baby: 

Your baby's the size of a butternut squash!

At less than two months to go, he weighs in at about 4.2 pounds to 5.8 pounds and measures about 17.2 to 18.7 inches.

Baby Development This Week: 

·         He's recognizing and reacting to simple songs, if you're singing them. (If you're not, start! He may find them soothing after birth.)
·         He's also urinating about a pint a day

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: Nothing really

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

Best Moment this week: The other night I started praying and Declan started kicking like crazy. It was pretty cute!


  1. That would be why the band Disturbed calmed Balian down after he was born... Hmmm...

    Only a little over a month left!!!

  2. Such great updates. You are getting close to the end. My cousin is here and pregnant. Her due date is end of August. She had some contractions 2 nights ago and we thought it was it but false alarm. :)


Be a dear and leave a comment.

They make me smile!
