Baby Roark ~ Week 31


A little pre-workout photo… At least my eyes are open since it’s about 5:45 am when I am able to fit it in most days.

Size? Baby Roark is about the size of a head of lettuce (18 in., 3.2 lbs.)
Heartbeat: 140-145 at 30 week appointment
Measuring: on track
Total weight gain/loss? 27 lbs. at last Fridays appointment
Maternity clothes? yep!
Cravings? Anything with sugar! My weakness this weekend were cookies, cupcakes and more cookies. I do well all day with healthy snacks and meals, but at the 5 o’clock witching hour it all goes to pot. A few sweets never hurt anyone, right?
Stretch marks? Not yet!
Best moment of the week? Getting to see my younger brother and SIL. It had been almost 5 months since we saw them last and the couple of times we were able to get together while they were in town or a friends wedding were great. Can’t wait until they come back for Thanksgiving.
Movement? Oh yeah! He moves when I eat, just sitting still, sleep, you name it. I wonder if other people can see my tummy jump as much as I do. It’s pretty noticeable at times.
Gender Predictions? It’s a boy!
What do I miss? I never thought I’d say it, but multi-tasking. I can only focus on one thin at a time and be able to complete it well. Otherwise, I will leave it undone and forget it was even started. It’s happened way too many times to count these past few weeks.
What am I looking forward to? A weekend of no plans! I say that a lot, but it feels like we only get one weekend a month that we don’t have to run all over Gods green earth seeing people and doing things. After a stressful week at work, it’s nice to just for us both to get some time to work on our own projects and feel rested for the next week come Monday.
How are you feeling? Still feeling pretty good… Just really tired again. Our little guy is on the fast track to plump up before he arrives and I’m just hoping that’s closer to the final weight if 7 lbs. than high 8lbs. babies.
