Baby Bump- 36 Weeks!

How far along: 36 weeks!  He is still packing on the pounds and shedding most of the downy covering of hair that covered his body.  Most likely he is in a head-down position! 

How big is baby:  Almost 6 pounds- crenshaw melon (what is that??) 

Sleep: It's okay. More getting up to go to the bathroom but nothing awful.  I think these last few weeks of pregnancy do try to prepare you for living with interrupted sleep.  But nothing can prepare you for that.
Diet/Cravings/Aversions: Nothing new! 

Exercise: YOGA!

Gender: BOY!!

Movement:  Yes!

Worries: I am more worried about this baby exiting my body.  I am worried about the pains of labor.  One day I am worried that this baby is going to come so fast I won't have time to blink, and the next day I am worried I am going to have a labor that lasts for days.  But then I have to remind myself that babies enter this world everyday.  Plenty of women do this.  I've done this before.  And one way or another, this baby is coming out!  And there is beer at the end of this marathon.  That is always motivating. 

What I'm loving: It snowed this weekend, and we spent plenty of time in our pajamas, watching movies, and drinking hot chocolate! 
Symptoms: I feel just a bit more weighed down, a bit more pregnant.  The need for naps is back (not that I mind) and my nesting urge has not reached its full potential which disappoints me!  This house needs to be cleaned. 

What I'm looking forward to: 28 days.  Just 28 little more days!

Best moment of the week: 98% of my Christmas shopping is done and wrapped.  Seriously.  I am so impressed with myself.

  1. You look great! Hope the next few weeks are not too uncomfortable, or full of worry. He will be here so soon and he will be so cute I'm sure! xoxo
