Baby Roark ~ Week 39


Size? Baby Roark is about the size of a watermelon – hopefully the smaller, seedless kind (19-22 in., around 6.5 to 7 lbs.)
Measuring: On track
Heartbeat? Between 135 to 140 at last appointment
Total weight gain/loss? 40 lbs. or so
Maternity clothes? yep!
Cravings? Still craving watermelon and fruit! Any kind of sweets dot last log at our house.
Best moment of the week? making the decision to start y maternity Lear a but early. Friday is my last day until the end of October. It still doesn’t seem completely real that we could have our sweet boy here in a weeks time.
Movement? mostly just his little feet kicking away. He’s moved down so he’s not hitting my ribs, but I love the reminder that he’s there and doing well.
Gender Predictions? It’s a boy!
What do I miss? Easily finding that comfortable spot. It seems like the little things take so much effort that when I do finally get to rest, it’s more work to get back up so I just fall asleep for a minute and wake up a little refreshed.
What am I looking forward to? Hopefully, a few days to relax and get all the final details out together in the nursery and around the house. Eric has been helping but he’s also trying to get ahead in his grad school summer course so he doesn’t have to stress as much about it once Jonathan gets here. We’re busy people!
How are you feeling? Mostly just tired. I’m hoping to get caught up on some R&R this weekend so I can conquer that to-do list (or at least some of it).
