What The Experts Say:

Mother:

Around this time you will begin to really put on the weight, this will last until about week thirty-six. Although some cultures dictate otherwise, weight gained during pregnancy is not fat or unhealthy, but rather, necessary for a healthy pregnancy and baby.

The weight that you gain will be distributed in several places. The average breast before pregnancy weighs about 7 ounces and during pregnancy each breast can weigh up to an average of 14 ounces! Some of the weight will go to body fluids (amniotic fluid, blood volume, etc.).

Baby:

Your baby’s skin is very wrinkled from floating in water. This will stay this way until a few weeks after birth as your newborn fills out into a baby. Although take heart in the fact that your baby’s looks are assuming the looks that they will have at birth! Baby has also hit the 2 pound mark (900 grams).

Dad:

If mom is starting to complain about her weight remind her of the importance of weight gain in pregnancy for a health pregnancy. You should also help her by not tempting her with sweets and setting a good example yourself.

What’s Going On With Us:

No news is good news.  We haven’t heard any negative results from the three hour glucose tolerance test so we’re pretty safe there. 

Nothing new to report, Baby P continues to grow (as does Mommy) and everyone is just thrilled at the prospect of meeting her soon.
