Squish Squash

We foresee squash as being Sam's favorite veggie once he starts on solid foods. This is the second squash that he has been compared to! A few weeks ago it was a spaghetti squash and by the end of this week he will weigh about as much as a butternut squash. Interesting that squash has the market cornered on prenatal comparisons...

Anyways, by the end of this week (week 29), Sam will weigh about 2.5 pounds and measure just over 15 inches! Our latest information blurb that we read said that because his nutritional demands are increasing, I will need to have plenty of protein, vitamin C, folic acid, and iron. I definitely have felt a jump in how hungry I am (like ALL the time!) and I'm trying to make good decisions! Thank goodness ice cream contains calcium :) Apparently about 250 mg of calcium are deposited in Sam's hardening skeleton each day during this last trimester! WOW!
