The Baby The average baby at 39 weeks is around 7.2lb in weight and over 50cm long. A guesstimation for Baby I’d put him around the 9lb-something mark. Let’s be real though, with two giants* as parents, we were never going to have small babies! (*we aren’t really giants. 6ft & 6ft9in…we’re taller than average…)… Continue reading Pregnancy Update: Week 39.
29th September 2017. A day I’ve been waiting 9 months for. It is finally here, and I can’t quite believe it…Where on earth has 9 months gone?? It only feels like last week we were announcing to everyone we were expecting #3! (and even now I’m still in complete denial as to how big my… Continue reading D-Date is Here. Or is it?

The Baby This week, according to the app the Baby is weighing in around 5.7lb, and about 47cm long – apparently a similar length to a “romaine lettuce” – whatever that is. My baby however, is 7.4lb now…(dear god.) and most likely longer than 47cm! Once this week is out of the way, I will be… Continue reading Pregnancy Update: Week 36.
The Baby This week: an average baby is looking to be around the weight of 5.3lb – the same as a honeydew melon & measuring about 46.2cm. But we’ve already established we’re on the “above average” spectrum here! I tried to google what fruit weighed around 6lb, but wasn’t very successful (feel free to tell… Continue reading Pregnancy Update: Week 35
