How far along? 36 weeks (5 days)
Total weight gain: I think I am up to 25 lbs now! – just can’t seem to resist having dessert every night… !
At doctor toady my belly measured right at 36.5 cm! and her heart rate was around 130 bpm… so thankful for a healthy growing baby girl.
Maternity clothes? yup, and yoga pants, a t-shirt and tennis shoes is my fav thing to wear these days!
Stretch marks? I found a couple :/
Sleep: depends on the night and how much I have to get up to pee!
Best moment this week: setting up Chloe’s “nursery” area in our room and getting lots done this week to prepare for her!
Miss Anything? sitting and laying comfortably
Movement: yes, pretty much every time she moves now I have to go to the bathroom! I can really see her body moving and changing sides when I look down at my belly now.
We went to the doctor today and she is head down, back up and in perfect position for birth! Hoping she stays this way and just continues to move downward 🙂
Food cravings: salmon, sweets at night
Anything making you queasy or sick: just feel queasy randomly some days… not quite sure why…
Labor Signs: some! at 35 weeks I started having painful contractions (or Braxton hicks) with cramping and back aching… they would happen every 3-5 minutes but only last an hour… this has happened several more times in the past two weeks. I am hoping this is just getting my body ready and when they check me next week that something has happened… trying not to get my hopes up though (although I am pretty sure I will cry if I am at a 0- I have been way more uncomfortable and in pain with this one than Liddy- so hoping that means something!)
Symptoms: sore back, cramping, lots of Braxton Hicks
Belly Button in or out? out
Wedding rings on or off? on
Happy or Moody most of the time: happy and ready to meet my baby girl!
Looking forward to: these last few weeks with just Lydia and to meeting our sweet Chloe! Can’t wait to see what she looks like!!
