36 Week Update

36 Week Update


How far along? 36 weeks!

Baby is the size of: a papaya, a Cabbage Patch doll, and a chihuahua. According to my apps, she should be close to 19 inches and 6 pounds, which explains why I have to pee ALL THE TIME.  6 pound weight on my bladder. However, she was measuring small at our last ultrasound, so who knows how big she is? We are going to go for an elective ultrasound next weekend to double check her size and position.

Maternity clothes? All the time. Feeling large and in charge most days.

Sleep: I may struggle a bit, but I know that mostly sleeping through the night at this point is a victory! Thank you, maternity pillow!

Best moment this week: eating a freaking donut. Gestational diabetes has meant not giving into cravings. I finally got a donut I’ve been wanting for weeks. And since I paired it with a lot of protein, I got ok sugar numbers after!

Movement: Still watching my belly move a lot more. The movements aren’t kung fu strong, so no one else can really feel them…but we can all see them!

Food cravings: I feel pretty good right now since I got to indulge a little this weekend.

Anything making you queasy or sick: Not really!

Symptoms: Just pregnancy uncomfortableness.  Having a tougher time moving around.

Belly button in or out? In

Wedding rings on or off? I’m not wearing them most of the time so I don’t swell up.

Happy or moody most of the time: Had a great week.

Looking forward to: A full weekend that will hopefully include a date night with Tyler!

Also…baby related. Look at this ADORABLE sign Tyler’s cousin Kelsey had made for us! It’s perfection!
