Pregnancy Highlights!

Pregnancy Highlights:

How Far Along: 35weeks!

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

He's about 17.2 to 18.7 inches. From here on out, he won't get much longer, but he's plumping up. He's now about 4.2 to 5.8 pounds, and he'll put on a pound or more of baby fat before birth.

Baby Development This Week: 
·         .Now, his hearing is fully developed, and he responds best to high-pitched noises.
·         If it's a boy, his testes have probably fully descended.

Maternity Clothes: Regular shirts (shirts are getting a little small, thinking I might need a couple of maternity 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: Sandwiches and orange juice

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

Best Moment this week: Shopping trip with John’s dad and stepmother. J


Be a dear and leave a comment.

They make me smile!
