I know I'm super late with this post, but I've made it this far and I'm not about to start skipping a week! I have worked very hard to post these weekly updates and with just a few left, it's better late than never. As of today, my countdown is down to 23 days instead of 28 since I'm nearly done with week 36.
How far along?: 36 weeks, 5 days
Baby is the size of a:
Total weight gain/loss: 40lbs
The Bump: I feel like she might have dropped a little
Symptoms: Heartburn, heartburn and heartburn. I've learned to sleep sitting up and that tums are my best friend.
Food Cravings: Nothing in particular
Anything Making Me Queasy or Sick: Nope
Sleep: I'm getting used to sleeping a little here and there. Between the numbness, having to go to the bathroom and the heartburn, there isn't a lot of quality sleep happening.
What I miss: Everything about not being pregnant. I know that sounds terrible, but as most women at this point, I'm done.
Weddings Rings On or Off: Off
Any Names Picked Out Yet: Charlotte Noel
Gender Prediction: Girl
Movement: She constantly moves, but I'm starting to feel her lower which is good.
Maternity Clothes: Rotating between the same 5 things, but I can see the light at the end of the tunnel!
Labor Signs: Really started having Braxton Hicks contractions this week. Definitely an odd feeling, but not painful.
Best Moment of the Week: We went to Richmond over the weekend for my father-in-laws 60th birthday party. It was so nice to see friends and family.
What I’m excited about/looking forward to: It's hard to wrap my head around Christmas with all the baby things happening, but I'm really looking forward to it!
