How far along? 37 Weeks
Sleep: Good, minus having to wake up at least once a night, but I guess that’s pretty easy considering what is about to come!
Best moment this week: Finished a big project for Parker’s room (Pic included below)
Belly button in or out? slightly slanted but still in
Wedding rings on or off? On
Gender: BOY!!! Parker Torosian
Symptoms: I felt another hiccup session this past week. Lots of movement.
This week baby is the size of a: bunch of swiss chard (?) Not sure what that is!
Baby’s development this week: He should measure just about 19 inches & weigh about 6 1/3 lbs.
New baby items (purchased or received): Purchased a few larger outfits that were on sale for Parker to wear next summer. Right now Parker has about as many 0-3 months clothes as I do in my closet!
Feeling (Happy, Moody, other): SOOOO excited!
Looking forward to: 3rd and final baby shower this weekend! I am just missing all of the “feeding” items, so I am really hoping to get everything we need in order to feed Parker since I plan to pump and then bottle feed.
Other Things Going On:
Last Friday I had my 36 week appointment and the doctor confirmed that baby is head down and in position. I am not dilated yet, but my cervix has thinned to 5o%. That means baby is starting to get ready to arrive! Woo hoo! I know everyone is as excited as CJ and I are to finally meet this little guy. I now start weekly doctor appointments so hopefully that will help pass the time.
Saturday, CJ and I did a ‘baby tour’ as I like to call it which is basically a hospital tour so when the time comes we know where to go! The tour brought comfort in knowing where I will need to go, what the labor & delivery, recovery, and nursery rooms all look like. My hope is that everything will start progressing while I am at work so I can just get wheeled over to the labor & delivery room!
As of last night, I officially have Parker’s and my hospital bag packed. Parker’s going home outfits are still up for debate though as I keep changing my mind, I’m also keeping an open mind to see if I get a ‘winner’ at the shower this weekend! CJ does not have any of his belongings packed yet, but I assume he will pack within the next week or so.

It says 'you are the greatest dad in the world! Love Parker"
