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 As we’ve long established, Baby Berney is bigger than the average that my app I’ve been using is saying. An average baby right now would usually be about 6.8lb & 50cm-ish (which is similar to the length of a leek!). Well…Berney #3 is definitely past that weight! We’re looking at 8.10lb right now…(please pray… Continue reading Pregnancy Update: Week 38.
Whoops, forgot about this one! Sorry it’s late 😀 The Baby It’s official. I am now classed as full-term, meaning the baby could potentially come any time at all! I had said previously that I thought he would be early, but the closer my due date gets, the more I feel he’s going to be late…… Continue reading Pregnancy Update: Week 37.
As your due date gets closer, you should probably start thinking of what you might need to take with you if you’re planning on having your baby in hospital. (However, these would also be items you may want close to hand or readily available if you’re having a home birth too!) With my first pregnancy,… Continue reading What to Pack in Your Hospital Bag
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
The Baby This week, baby is (supposedly) about the size of a cantaloupe melon, weighing in around 4.7lb and measuring about 45cm…Well, I’m not sure Baby Berney is sticking to these estimations! At our midwife appointment, he was measuring along the 50th centile line, putting him at 2700g (which is 5.9lb) So I’m not holding… Continue reading Pregnancy Update: Week 34.
Last Sunday, I was extremely lucky to have been thrown a baby shower by my sisters and mum! Initially I wasn’t sure whether it was a bit rude of me to have a baby shower as I had one for William and wasn’t sure on the etiquette on if it was greedy to have another… Continue reading Baby Berney #3’s Baby Shower.
I feel like I’m posting these daily, how has a week gone by already? Can someone slow down the speed of time please? I mean we’re in the middle of August already! August! It’s gonna be *whispers* Christmas soon! (18wks & 2 days to be exact…) And even sooner than that, the kids go back to… Continue reading Pregnancy Update: Week 33.
