Bumpdate: 36 Weeks!

How Far Along? 36 Weeks!

Weight Gain? Went to the doctor today and apparently it’s at 33 pounds…ugh. I know it could be a lot worse, but I was really hoping to keep it to 30…and now it looks like I’ll hit 40 by the time I deliver. It’s a little depressing, but I’m trying to think of it all going to baby to make her healthy!

Size of Baby? A large cantaloupe – 19-22 inches and about 6 pounds!

Maternity Clothes?  Yep.

Stretch Marks?  Yep.

Gender? BABY GIRL!!!

Sleep? Pretty good still. I get up for bathroom breaks, but the insomnia hour has largely gone away – hoping it stays away!

Food Cravings? Nope.

Symptoms? Heartburn is definitely back, and I’m definitely getting much more uncomfortable…and my feet swell like crazy – yesterday I had to put flip flops on at work since my work shoes wouldn’t fit anymore by about 10:30am!

Movement? Yep, but definitely slowing down – BB is running out of room in there!

Belly Button? Ugh. Weird.

Wedding rings on or off? Cheapo is still on!

Labor signs? Nope. In fact, at my appt today, doctor said my cervix is still closed…looks like she’s cozy in there and wants to stay a while still!

Best Moment of the Week? My baby shower this past Sunday – recap coming soon!

What I Miss? Being able to tie my own shoes.

What I am looking forward to: Finally packing my hospital bag this week and hopefully getting the nursery mostly finished!
