We have officially decided on the name Parker Andrew Stant.
By this week, Parker weighs around two and a quarter pounds (like a Chinese cabbage) and measures 14.8 inches from the top of his head to his heels. He can blink his eyes, which now sport lashes. With his eyesight developing, he may be able to see the light that filters in through your womb. He's also developing billions of neurons in his brain and adding more body fat in preparation for life in the outside world.
On Sunday, we went to St. Joe's for a 'Prepared Child Birth' class. It was actually very informative and fun! We learned so many coping techniques and options we have when its time to go to the hospital. I got a lot of back rubs, which was AMAZING! Thanks Gordon! I feel so much better about going into labor. Next up we have what is called the 'Baby Business Tour' where we register for the hospital, social security number and birth certificate. As well as touring the Labor and Delivery unit. This will take place sometime in November.
We went for the 28 week check up on Monday. They measured my uterus and it was 29 inches which would indicate that I might be a week farther along than we originally thought, although it could just be a large baby (go figure). Other than that things are looking great and the Dr. is happy about how we are progressing through this pregnancy.
Next appointment is November 24th, 32 week check up
I hope to post belly pictures soon! Stay posted!
