36 Weeks {Itty Bitty}

I'm so behind on pregnancy updates! I can't believe the last time I updated was 28 weeks at Thanksgiving...

Pregnancy Highlights

How Far Along: 36 Weeks 

Size of baby:  Itty Bitty is about the size of a 6 lb watermelon!!

Total Weight Gain/Loss:  Gained 22 lbs total

Maternity Clothes: Yes, and out growing what few I do have... 

Gender: We are having a boy! We announced it here, in case you missed it.

Movement: He is all knees and elbows! It's getting so cramped so I feel everything! From a full roll over to his little hiccups. 

Sleep: Acid reflux has been my worst enemy. I have to not eat several hours before going to bed, which usually means I go to bed hungry but I guess it's the lesser evil. I also wake up in the night and can't get back to sleep so I just lay there or turn from side to side until I can get back to sleep.

Symptoms: Lots of Braxton Hicks contractions lately. I have to take it easy and try to not lift the kids too much or I'll start having contractions. I'm so winded whenever I use the stairs, which is everyday because we live in a split level house! 

What I miss: Sleeping on my tummy and not needing a body pillow in bed. Being able to do more with the Littles. Eating only 3 meals a day instead of having a few bites of something every other hour and being full because I have no room for food anymore!

Cravings: Not much of an appetite any more, I haven't been craving anything really.

Best Moment this week: Getting Little Lady into her big girl bed and having her like it so much! I think she is going to do really well when her new baby brother comes!

What I am looking forward to: Honestly, not being pregnant and getting back to being a not pregnant me. I just can't wait to hold this baby boy in my arms. :)

I am so excited that Little Lady is in her "big girl" bed! She's growing up so (too) fast! Please cover my "Littles" with Nana kisses!!!!! Muah!

Reading this makes me miss being pregnant.  Isn't that weird?  :-)  There is so much to complain about when I am pregnant and yet both times I have really missed it for a few weeks after wards.  Praying for you!  I hope you can get some rest and some relief from the acid reflux!
