Baby’s Size: Large cantaloupe (19 – 22 in., 6 lbs.)
Symptoms: Back pain and just overall “largeness.” It is nice to know I don’t look as large as I feel though. We traveled by plane to Oklahoma this past weekend to visit my grandparents and I was ready with a doctor’s note saying I was cleared to fly and wasn’t 36 weeks yet… nobody even asked
Weight Gain: 16.7 lbs (0.2 lbs since last week). I am much more pleased with this number than the one from the last two weeks. I was really having a sweet tooth that I just gave into before. Usubg regular meals plans as well as packing healthy snacks and tracking everything I eat on MyFitnessPal again has really helped!
Movement: He moves all the time! While I love an active baby, it is making sleeping harder and I fear this is a sign for how active he will be when he gets out. So much for planning on another passive, mellow, quiet kid
Thoughts from Monkey Girl: She is getting very excited for her baby brother to arrive. We have started talking about mommy going to the hospital and what it will be like when we come home. I am thinking about getting her a newborn baby doll that she can feed with a bottle, rock, etc. so that she can take care of her baby while I am taking care of Baby Boy. Do you have any recommendations of good dolls?
