Baby Roark ~ Week 32


strong>Size? Baby Roark is about the size of a head of lettuce (19 in., 3.9 lbs.)
Heartbeat: 140-145 at 30 week appointment
Measuring: on track
Total weight gain/loss? probably around 30 lbs. When I go back to the doc I’ll get the exact number.
Maternity clothes? yep!
Cravings? Anything with sugar!
Stretch marks? Not yet!
Best moment of the week? Putting together the nursery with Eric and washing our little one’s first load of laundry. While the clothes didn’t take up much room, the blankets and other fabric items, like the bouncer cover and sheets, did. I feel so much more prepared for our little guy now!
Movement? very strong! He is warming up for the World Cup next week and taking practice shots at my side, ribs and bladder. It even more of an incentive to eat small meals and lay off the sugary foods/ snacks.
Gender Predictions? It’s a boy!
What do I miss? Free time/ energy. With waning energy levels my days seem so much shorter so I don’t have much free time outpace of daily to-dos and such
What am I looking forward to? Seeing the initial plans for the crib bedding. My mom is starting to see the dust ruffle this week and the blanket and bumper won’t be far behind. It just feels that much more special to have something your family has created for your little guy.
How are you feeling? I’ve been blessed with a healthy pregnancy and can’t really complain. With all the variables involved, a little fatigue or swollen ankles are nothing compared to the alternatives. Praying for a healthy journey through the last couple of months before we get to meet our little one.
