Pregnancy Update: 36 Weeks

36w 3d

How far along? 36 weeks (I do these a week behind as a recap of the previous week, so I'm actually 37 weeks, and actually full term, today.)

Total weight gain/loss: I'm currently 151.6 lbs! That's +39.2 lbs for this entire pregnancy.

Maternity clothes: Yes!!

Stretch marks? Yes!! I have new ones forming on the right side of my stomach... I'll post pictures as soon as they're clearly visible.

Sleep: I still sleep well considering! I wake up at 2:30, 4:30 and 5:30 or 6:30 to use the restroom... and one night I woke up with Charlie Horses!! Argh!!

Best moment this week: I was really happy to "officialize" some plans for my little family's impending future.

Worst moment of the week: ... Uh, I guess waking up with aching upper rib pain on my left side (thanks to Ed and Al's placentas) are pretty cumbersome.

Miss anything? I miss being able to sleep through the night!

Movement: She moves more often during longer periods (7am-9am, 11am-2pm, 7pm-11pm) and her movements are much stronger than before.

Food cravings: None!

Anything making you queasy or sick: None!

36w 3d

Have you started to show yet: Yes, I'm huge!

Gender Prediciton: It's a girl!

Labor signs: I have tummy aches... and the doctor confirmed that they're actually real contractions! I haven't been checked for dilation and thinning (I think I'll just do one check at my next appointment...), but the doctor thinks I'll go on closer to my due date since Lamby's been measuring on schedule.

Symptoms: From most annoying or painful to least: severe, pressure from the contractions, constant pelvic pain in my left groin, sciatica/upper and lower back pain with overactivity, a dime-sized hemorrhoid.

Belly button in or out? ... I think it's still an innie. It's really hard to tell!

Wedding rings on or off? On!, but the digits are starting to get swollen.

Happy or moody most of the time? Neutral! Lots of things to plan and set aside time for.

Looking forward to: My next OB/GYN appointment!

    You're so close now. I had my second one at 38 weeks =) Good luck with the rest of your pregnancy and most importantly, your delivery. Take care =)

  2. Aww, thanks for the words of encouragement!! My mom's in Ohio and I'm in Massachusetts... but she swore she sensed I was going into labor last week. I'm going on 39 weeks tomorrow. I hope baby makes her appearance soon... but it doesn't look like it!
