Well we’re 36 weeks along aka 9 MONTHS PREGNANT!! I can’t believe there’s only 4 weeks (give or take) to go! Since we finished up the nursery this week, we also had to take down the chalkboard with the weekly countdown in order to hang-up other pictures… So instead of my usual picture, I’ll instead show you 3 recent pic’s of the baby bump…
How far along? 36 weeks
Baby Size: The size of a ripe papaya (close to 19″ long and 6 lbs.)
Total weight gain: 26-27 lbs
Maternity clothes? Yep, I’d say 90% of my clothes are maternity.
Sleep: Oh, sleep. I’m comfortable and still haven’t used the big ‘ol pregnancy pillow but I’m going to the bathroom 3x a night and the little peanut loves to move around during the night so sleep has been OK to say the least.
Miss Anything? Fun, summer beers…. Can’t wait to drink a Whale’s Tale Pale Ale + Sam’s Summer in August.
Movement: She’s a very active little lady. She definitely favors my right side and loves to kick under my ribs and poke her little booty out all the time. :)
Best moments this week: Getting my monthly mani/pedi, hanging with my family at my mom’s annual Lobster Fest,
and finishing up the nursery (full blog post on the nursery coming this week!)
Food cravings: The usual cravings but now I want everything really cold… ice, cold water, fresh fruit (especially fresh pineapple + strawberries), chocolate popsicles + smoothies.
A creamy, pineapple, mango smoothie…
Food aversions: Nada
Symptoms: Well it’s official; I have cankles… and swollen feet! What the heck? I’m also constantly out of breath.
Workouts: Workouts were really toned down last week. I went on lots of power-walks to reach my 10K steps a day,
and I also did a bunch of workouts from the awesome ‘Knocked-Up Fitness Guide To Pregnancy’ book:
Looking forward to: Checking a lot of items off our ‘Baby To-Do-List’ this week, including:
Monday: Wash, fold + organize all the baby clothes, blankets, towels, etc.
Tuesday: 2-hour breast-feeding class
Wednesday: 36-week check-up
Thursday: ‘Meet + Greet’ with the pediatrician
Friday: Nothing? I hope…
Saturday: Infant CPR/First-Aid class in the morning and hopefully getting the car seat inspected by the local Fire Department in the afternoon.
Slowly but surely we’re getting there! :)
