36 Weeks

April 18, 2011

(sorry, my picture files are SO BIG and I rarely resize them so they come out blurry on blogger.)

How far along?  36 weeks (what...only 4 weeks.  ahhhhhhh!)

Baby size:  Around 6 lbs (crenshaw melon?) and over 18 in long.

Total weight gain/loss:  I'll know at my next appointment tomorrow.  It was +16

Maternity clothes?  Yes, but it just depends.  Right now I'm wearing all non maternity clothes.

Sleep:  I still sleep very hard! 

Best moment this week:  My last shower was fun :)

Movement:  Still some jabs every now and then that hurt but now less hurting and just more bumps and stretches.

Food cravings:  eh...none this week

What I miss:  hmm...bending over with ease.  Anything with ease.

What I am looking forward to:  Well, it all seems to be flying by so right now I'm looking forward to enjoying the last few weeks.

Milestones:  I'm now in my 9th month and at the end of this week I'll be considered full term...hmm...am I ready for all of this???

Pregnancy Symptoms: Thirst, when I stretch in the morning I get calf cramps, BH contractions, occasional ligament and ab pain, strange hot/cold nerve sensation that goes down my right leg when I stand up and a very tired right leg sometimes, heart palpitations, hot at night, occasional low pressure and sharp or crampy pain...nothing new.

Stretch Marks: Not one!

Belly button: My innie is still hanging on. I don't know how much longer it can last really.

Woo for almost full term!! You look so good Emily! Have you tried stretching your legs with your foot flat? I find that it doesn't give me the calf cramps like a pointed toe stretch does.

Whoop! Congrats on the no stretch marks! Very exciting!

I dont know if this will help but bananas really help with cramps...

Have a happy Monday!

Congrats on making it to the end! I held onto my innie till the last two months -- and then well, it was pretty obvious. :)

You can do this. And savor and enjoy these last weeks. :)

I went into labor and delivered at 36 weeks (a couple weeks ago now)...so it could be any time! Have fun with the last month :)
