Baby Roark ~ Week 33


Size? Baby Roark is about the size of a honeydew (19 in., 4.5 lbs.)
Measuring: on track
Total weight gain/loss? around 32 lbs. or so. Trying hard to keep it in the range the doc gave us but will probably go a little over before it’s all said and done.
Maternity clothes? yep!
Cravings? Anything with sugar (fruit, candy, ice cream…yum!) and carbs (crackers, popcorn, bread…you name it).
Stretch marks? Not yet!
Best moment of the week? Finishing our labor and delivery class… While it was certainly more graphic than either of us would have liked it was informative and makes us that much more excited to have our little guy here with us soon.
Movement? Very strong! He’s starting to run out of room Andy tummy does the wave a few times a day. He’s more active in the morning and after lunch. Food gives him the energy to do his daily aerobics and explore his little area more.
Gender Predictions? It’s a boy!
What do I miss? The ability to focus on one thin at a time. It feels like there are so many things going on when really it is just my normal level I activity mixed with pregnancy brain. Luckily, I haven’t had too many instances of forgetfulness but they are certainly more frequent. Does it really last for a year after I give birth too?
What am I looking forward to? Holding our little guy. It’s fun to daydream about what he will look like, act like and do in life. I’m sure he’ll be adventurous and energetic like all little boys, but as we get closer to his arrival it makes it all the harder to wait.
How are you feeling? Pretty good… Even despite the random comments from strangers. Cashiers seem to be the worse. They are trying to make small talk, but don’t phrase their questions well at all. Here are some of the best examples so far – “How many days do you have left?” “How much weight have you gained so far?” – People are surprisingly comfortable with asking about your weight and otherwise private issues when you’re pregnant. Luckily, no strangers have been touching my tummy grocery store or anything.
