I am: 36 weeks pregnant
Size of Baby: Crenshaw Melon (I had to look up a picture of this - I had never heard of it before) ~ about 6 pounds and 18.5" long. We have a Dr. appointment and sonogram tomorrow so we will know Parker's exact size - can't wait!
Total Weight Gained: 18 pounds
Maternity Clothes: I am wearing maternity leggings and a maternity sweater in this picture.
Gender: It's a BOY!
Name: Parker Holt
Movement: I feel lots of movement throughout the day and night ~ he's active, but has his times of rest too.
