Baby Roark ~ Week 30


Size? Baby Roark is about the size of a butternut squash (17 in., 3.1 lbs.)
Heartbeat: 143-145 at 28 week appointment
Measuring: on track
Total weight gain/loss? 25-27 lbs. (will find out at our now bi-weekly appointment this week)
Maternity clothes? yep!
Cravings? Fruit and carbs… All those things that aren’t on the recommended prego steady weight gain diet, but staying strong! The constant reminder of the nourishment for our little guy keeps me on track.
Stretch marks? Not yet!
Best moment of the week? Celebrating our little one with lifelong friends and family. It was so precious to see how much everyone already cares for him. I’m sure we’ll have lots of wiki hands to hold him once he arrives.
Movement? He’s getting more noticeable that’s for sure. I still haven’t been able to figure out exactly which body part is moving but I am getting closer to figuring it out. Sometimes I wish there was a window inside to see his little hands and feet move around.
Gender Predictions? It’s a boy!
What do I miss? My belly is noticeably taking up more space so bending down and stretching after my workouts (which only happen every other day). It is a bit strange to be a little more limited in my mobility since it wasn’t as big of an issue until now (no pun intended).
What am I looking forward to? A three day weekend!! And my brother and SIL will be coming for a quick visit for a friends wedding. I haven’t seen them since Christmas so I’m really excited to get to see them for a little bit while they’re in town.
How are you feeling? Tired and a bit overwhelmed at times, but good. Just taking it one day at a time and planning a head when I can. It’s the little things like making my lunch the night before and laying out my clothes that seem to make the biggest difference. I’m sure this is just training for what is to come when we have a whole other person to care for on a daily basis.
