Parker @ 32 weeks

We had a GREAT and INTERESTING appointment today. Yes Parker is GROWING HUGE! He's already 5 pounds and 4 ounces. I am 32 weeks but measuring 34 weeks. Dr. Ricks thinks there might be some genetics involved in his size since my testing came back fine for the gestational diabetes but he still advised me to watch carbs, sodium, and sweets....what else does that leave me? Just kidding! :) He is looking at inducing on August 5th unless preterm labor beats us to that day. He'd like to reach 39 weeks if all possible b/c of what he calls "wimpy white boy syndrome" where their lungs arn't quite fully developed as much as they should be typically in white males. I have another appointment in 2 weeks for just a check up and another appointment with another sonogram two weeks after that, that we will re-look at the due date to see if it needs to be reevaluated due to size. Definately exciting and realistic. I can't believe it's right around the corner. These are definately some of my FAVORITE sonogram pictures. He is so CUTE and has little rose bud lips!! We'll keep you updated! Email:


  1. I am beyond excited for you guys! You are awesome and Baby P looks to be doing pretty great as well! Love the pictures and looking forward to more updates! Have a great week! XOXO Paula

  2. Your doctor is very smart. Let him mature those lungs as much as possible. Wishing you guys the very best!!!


  3. Your doctor is very smart. Let his lungs mature as long as possible. It is so hard to leave your baby in hospital because of that reason. Wishing you all the best!!!
