Our New Baby This Week

 

32 Weeks

 

It's getting awfully snug in there! Our baby weighs almost 4 pounds and is almost 17 inches long. Im gaining a pound a week now, and roughly half of that goes right to the baby. In fact, he'll gain a third to half of his birth weight during the next seven weeks as he fattens up for survival outside the womb. He has tiny toenails now, and his fingernails have grown in, too. Some babies have a head of hair already; others have only peach fuzz.

This is what the baby looks like now:

 

 

And I do believe hes flipped to be head down now too. I noticed the kicks are now much higher and my neighbor said Ive dropped.

Chris and I are curious what you all think the name of the baby boy should be. We have narrowed it down to our two favorites, but we still want to know if you have any input. So, if you think of a name (first or middle) that's not on the list but want to suggest it, email us.

Note that, for the purposes of this chart, babies are measured from the crown (or top) of the head to the rump (or bottom) until about 20 weeks. After that, they're measured from head to toe.
