36 Weeks!


How Far Along: 36 weeks, 4 weeks to go! (We're in the 9th month now)

Size of baby: Baby S is over 18 inches long, the size of a melon, and weighs about 5-6 pounds. 

Weight Gain/Loss: I haven't gained much this week. This morning I was 164.2, though a couple days I was 165.4. At the doc today, I was 164. Nice.

Body Changes: Discovered some stretch marks on my thighs. Boo.

Gender: It's a GIRL!

Movement: She is a machine these days. Anytime I'm still, I start feeling her pressing against my belly. I think she's been getting hiccups because there's a rhythmic movement occasionally. Oh, and she likes to dance a lot in the middle of the night. I'm hitting a point where it's a bit uncomfortable!

Sleep: There's good days and bad days. Usually I wake up once or twice to pee (do I seriously have that much liquid in me?) and then sometimes I wake up just to lay there frustrated lol

What I'm looking forward to: Maternity photos this weekend! We couldn't do them this past weekend. Oh, and not having to pee every 15 minutes.

Cravings: Nothing major these days.

Symptoms: The usual. Braxton Hicks. Some back aches. Slight swelling.

Best Moment This Week: I had my 36 week appointment today and I have to say, it went awesome. Seriously, the midwife we had was just fantastic. She was funny and she addressed my concerns with ease. She kept saying they won't stop labor at this point and I said I won't be having this baby until December.

Oh geez, four weeks until my due date. Scary!
