36 Week Baby Update

Friday, January 17, 2014

Now that I am getting closer to my due date, I thought that it might be a good idea to post my updates on the actual day that I am 36 weeks, 37 weeks, etc. So with that being said, today I am 36 weeks and I can't believe it! Only a month to go!! Here is a little update for you all :)



How far along? 36 weeks
Total weight gain: 20.5 pounds
Maternity clothes? Leggings, stretchy jeans, sweats, maxi dress, maternity shirts. I also like wearing Chanse's shirts, sweats, and hoodies because they are just so comfy for me :)
Stretch marks? Nope
Sleep: Sleep is hard to come by right about now. I spend a lot of time just laying in bed and thinking ha
Best moment this week: Maternity pics with Chanse and my sis :) Taking them was a lot of fun, and they made me feel excited for our baby girl to get here :) I also loved going to my doctor's appointment and hearing our baby girl's heartbeat again! Such an amazing and comforting sound :)
Miss anything? Sleeping better and peeing less ha! I swear I never leave the bathroom ;)
Movement: She is still loving my ribs. Her favorite thing to do is kick them…repeatedly haha. She will also move her legs or her arms across the surface of my stomach and it is really cool to watch them poking out! Sometimes I have to sit back and tell myself that I actually have a little human growing inside of me! So amazing!
Food cravings: Salads with tortillas, cereal, bagels, cheese, bananas, bubble gum
Anything making you queasy or sick: I have been nauseous lately, but nothing specific makes me feel this way. I generally feel the most nauseous in the mornings though
Gender: Girl 
Labor signs: No 
Symptoms: Braxton Hicks contractions, nausea, and lightheadedness (is that a word?!) Oh and my feet are swollen too
Belly button in or out? It is pretty much out now, kinda cool ha!
Wedding rings on or off? Still on, but it doesn't spin around my finger like it used to
Happy or moody most of the time: Happy and emotional haha. I cried at Smiths the other day when the guy working in the meat section told me that the rotisserie chickens wouldn't be ready for 20 more minutes. I'm pathetic haha! I am also starting to feel more anxious. I am just so excited for her to get here!
Looking forward to: My doctors appointment next week :)

Gym Pic :)

Chanse and I were talking last night and he said that he couldn't believe we would be parents in a month or less! It really just doesn't seem real to either of us sometimes. We are both so excited though, and we can't wait to meet our precious little girl :)

I posted this pic on my Instagram, and I love his goofy smile :) He really is going to be the best Daddy!
