How far along? 36 Weeks
Total weight gain/loss: +26lbs. Staying steady at this weight for now.
Maternity clothes? YES, even these are really not fitting that well anymore!
Stretch marks? Nope. No stretch marks to report at this time. My tummy is holding on for dear life.
Sleep: This is pretty much non-existent. I’ve decided to embrace the struggle and say its practice for when the baby arrives. It truly is a good thing in a way because my body is already acclimated to NO SLEEP and there will be less of a shock to my system for hourly feedings.
Best moment this week: We finally hit the 4 week countdown!
Have you told family and friends? Yep!
Worst moment this week: Nothing bad. Everything is good.
Miss Anything? Sleeping and eating without feeling like a whale. I’m starting to get tired of being preggers. I also want my figure and non-chubby pregnant face back…like NOW!!! Can’t wait to start working out again.
Movement: Big rolls and waves of movement. At our weekly checkup the baby was moving so much and the sweet doctor was talking to the baby. He/She kept kicking the doctor during the exam. It was cute and almost made me cry.
Food cravings: Cherry Garcia Ice Cream and Strawberry Popsicles…not contributing positively to the face weight gain.
Anything making you queasy or sick: Nada
Symptoms: Everything…I feel like crying and need to get over myself. I’m growing a human and its hard. But what I am creating is so much bigger than me or the pain and constant uncomfortableness.
Have you started to show yet: YEP
Gender prediction: Still thinking boy but I can’t wait to deliver so we finally know what our little Gummy Bear is. Also I can’t stop drooling over all the adorable Easter baby clothes and am so excited for Baby’s First Official Holiday. Of course if baby comes by the due date then we would be celebrating our Irish roots and celebrating St. Patricks Day!
Labor Signs: Nothing but Braxton Hicks Contractions and lots of pressure!!! My body is definitely getting ready to have a little baby. So excited!!!!
Belly Button in or out? OUT
Wedding rings on or off? On, but my poor little feet are swollen.
Happy or Moody most of the time: HAPPY!
Looking forward to: Meeting out little one. The bags are packed, our birth plan is written, and the nursery is ready to go.
