Large jicama (what on earth?) (weight)
About 16.7 inches, 3.75 lbs (although an ultrasound this week showed him to be closer to 4.5 lbs)

He'll gain a third to half of his birth weight over the next 7 weeks. He now has toenails, fingernails, & real hair (which we also saw on the ultrasound).
Best Moment this Week
We received our car seat in the mail yesterday that was bought by our wonderful bff's Zac & Cara. We were so touched to get such a gift from them! Zac has always been one of the most selfless, giving people we have ever known, & Cara fits him so well & we are so excited they're getting married & thankful for their friendship! (Not to mention the car seat is ADORABLE!! We hadn't seen it in person yet, but I love it!)
BOY! Elliot James.
I'm not 100% sure on Elliot's position today, but during the past couple of days he has been moving around a lot, often ending up transverse across my belly then making his way back to head-up. But I'm encouraged that he's still moving around so much, so he's not just deciding to get stuck breech. Still praying for a flip & stick! :-)
This week's fruits: peaches, strawberries, honeydew melon, apples, grapefruit.
Still SO tired. I am getting sleepy earlier & earlier during the evenings lately. I'm sleeping fairly well still, altho his movements during the night are becoming more noticeable so I wonder when he'll start to keep me up.
What I am looking forward to
I'm getting ready for Elliot to actually be here. I don't even feel like finishing up all the organizing & preparing (not so much nesting going on). But he can stay in there a few more weeks, I'm okay with that.
A little nausea, super tired, lower back pain, swelling, way thirsty all the time.
