Happy Friday! I’m wondering how many more of these updates I am going to do before this baby comes… 1.. maybe 2… who knows?!?! Let’s get to the update
How far along: 36 weeks= 4 weeks left=28 days to go!!
Excuse the poor lighting in the photo… it was the best I could do!
Due Date: February 13, 2015
Total weight gain: 21 pounds. I’ve been holding steady at the same weight for about 4 weeks. The doctors aren’t worried because the baby is growing. It’s probably due to the fact that my appetite has really decreased because I have such bad acid reflux.
Sleep: Oh Sleep… I miss you– I may not see you for quite some time. I get into bed around 9pm and between 9 am 3 I get up 2-3 times. Once 3am rolls around I tend to be awake until about 4:30 or 5am and then I fall back asleep until 6:00. Mornings are HARD!
Exercise: Gone are the days of 5am workouts! It’s not happening but I am still getting to the gym 3-4 days a week if I can go both days on the weekend! At the gym I use the elliptical for 30-40 minutes and then do weights for 10-20 minutes along with some stretches! At 36 weeks I’m thrilled that I can still get a decent workout it!
Miss anything: My brain! Seriously! It’s turned to mush. I lose things left and right and really I don’t lose them… they are just right in front of me. Yesterday morning I was making eggs for Sara for breakfast and instead pouring milk into the eggs, I poured it right into the pan. The other night I put frozen veggies in the fridge instead of the freezer and then noticed it the next morning!
Movement: All the times and often it’s a bit painful. Kicks and rolls will sometimes take my breath away.
Food cravings: This week it’s been green beans and pineapple. I wish I could explain… but I am going with it!
Anything making you queasy or sick: Unfortunately, most meals leave me feeling a bit sick afterwards but it’s not stopping me from eating. I do the small frequent snacking and that kind of helps. The acid reflux/GERD just gets worse as the day goes on.
Belly Button In or Out – Out- 100%
Wedding Rings – on or off? Still ON– no swelling at this point!
Stretch Marks: Nope! Thank you coconut oil
Happy or Moody? Happy, excited and a bit anxious. I remember thinking that January would go by slowly but it’s more then 1/2 over and it’s going by so fast. While we can’t wait to be a family of four, we are truly enjoying what time we have left as a threesome! Big and exciting changes are coming SO soon but for now I love my girl time with my little lady who is growing up SO FAST!
Gender: Still feeling girl… I love not knowing… it makes the end that much more fun!
Labor Signs: Daily Braxton Hicks and they are becoming a bit stronger but not nothing major. I’m at the doctor every week now for non stress tests. As time consuming as appointments are now I can’t complain about listening to the little ones heart beat for an extended period of time.
Anything Else: I’ve actually been getting a few things done and with a long weekend ahead, I am excited about getting more stuff done. The bedding is in and this weekend is all about washing, organizing and cleaning and loading up the freezer more!
Looking Forward To: A 3 day weekend… getting some things crossed off the baby “to do” list and a date night on Sunday… hopefully a movie too!
What are you up to this weekend?
I’ll be back Monday or Tuesday depending on how much fun we have this weekend.
