Your baby weighs 6 1/3 pounds and measures a bit over 19 inches, head to heel (like a stalk of Swiss chard). Many babies have a full head of hair at birth, with locks from 1/2 inch to 1 1/2 inches long. But don't be surprised if your baby's hair isn't the same color as yours. Dark-haired couples are sometimes thrown for a loop when their children come out as blonds or redheads, and fair-haired couples have been surprised by Elvis look-alikes. And then, of course, some babies sport only peach fuzz."
I don't have an outie-the shirt is just folded weird...
While "Term Tillman" is growing and measuring like a stalk of Swiss chard, I am still growing as well. Here are some facts about Mrs. Pregnant in the Lowcountry.
-How big is the baby? Tillman's weight was guesstimated around 5lbs last Thursday.
-Weight gain? Ugh...32lbs. I read one of my post from the first trimester about how much is a healthy weight to gain, and it said 30lbs. Well, I have passed that and still have 3 weeks to go! Feeling pretty huge these days...especially my legs (not attractive).
-Stretch Marks? Not that I can tell...at least new ones...ugh puberty was not nice to me!
-Sleep? I sleep just fine with 4 pillows, and wake up at 12, 2 and 4 for potty breaks!
-Best moment of the week? A surprise baby shower at work last Friday! Complete surprise!
-Food and cravings? Cold food...ice cream (Blue Bell Banana Split).
-Movement? Tillman is "tearing it up" in his happy place this week! He has been super active.
-What I miss? SUSHI-I had a California roll this weekend...just not the same, but got me my fix.
-Belly Button? Just about flattened out.
-Looking forward to? Getting back into my normal clothes and successfully breastfeeding.
-Milestone? Tillman is full term!
