How far along? 36 weeks (9 months pregnant)
Anything making you queasy or sick: Nothing at all.
Gender: Baby is a BOY, and his name is Elijah.
How I’m feeling: I feel great – this pregnancy has turned out to be nothing like what people said it would be. At 36 weeks I am still happy to be pregnant and love looking at my belly.
Baby this week – The size of a canary melon, and his wrinkly suit of skin is really filling out at this stage as he gets plumper. He is about 18.6 inches long, and weighs nearly 6 pounds!! I definitely feel those extra pounds right there in my belly. Sweet Baby Elijah is getting closer and closer to being able to breath on his own. His gums are rigid, his liver and kidneys are in working order, and his circulation and immune systems are basically all good to go. One more week and he will officially be considered “full term”!!
