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...
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. :)
