Pregnancy Highlights!

Pregnancy Highlights:

How Far Along: 36 weeks!

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

He's still in the 17.2- to 18.7-inch and 4.2- to 5.8-pound range and continues to beef up.

Baby Development This Week: 
·         He's getting closer and closer to being able to breathe on his own.
·         His skin is getting smooth and soft and his gums are rigid.
·         His liver and kidneys are in working order.
·         Circulation and immune systems are basically good to go, too.
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: Sleep has been a little better lately, I think it’s because I’ve just been so exhausted. Naps have become a regular part of my schedule again…lol. I’m enjoying it while I can. ;)

What I miss: Just feeling normal---not feeling huge and hot all the time!
Cravings: Nothing really.

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

Best Moment this week: Setting up Declan’s crib and starting on his nursery area. J


  1. Thanks for the update. Hang in there - he'll be here before you know it! Cheers

  2. I cannot believe he will be here in like one month! Whoa buddy!
    And YAY we get to see you Wednesday!!!


Be a dear and leave a comment.

They make me smile!
