How far along: 36 weeks
Total Weight Gained: 36 pounds…..I have lost a few pounds this week…but I have been sick :(
How big is baby? By 36 weeks pregnant, your baby is now 5.9 pounds and about 18.6 inches or longer! Baby is still working on putting on weight during pregnancy week 36. While that may not seem very exciting, keep in mind that this is his primary job from now until delivery.
Maternity Clothes: yep!
Sleep: Not good this week. Have been pretty darn uncomfortable!!
Best Moment of the Week: hearing the baby’s heartbeat at my appt. today.
Movement: oh yes….always! Lots of kicks to the ribs. Also having contractions this week. Some painful, some not…but nothing too consistent.
Food Craving: …no appetite for the past couple of days. I have been sick, sick, sick. Can’t keep anything down!!
Food Aversions: This week, lots…but just because of the flu!
Morning Sickness: morning, afternoon, and night!! ha
Symptoms: heartburn, difficulty sleeping, LOTS of Braxton hicks contractions…
What I miss: bending over comfortably to put on my socks and shoes!!
What I'm looking forward to: WELLLL….I have an ultra sound on Friday to see what is happening. I measured 34 weeks when I was 32, 34 when I was 34, and now that I am at 36 weeks I am only measuring at 32. Doctor wants to check to make sure that baby is ok. She may be out of room…or not able to grow inside there anymore. This could explain some of the discomfort that I am feeling. Doc says that she is being extra precautions…but wants to make sure that everything looks ok and proportionate. SOOOO, I guess we will have more news on Friday afternoon.
**no pictures this week b/c I was sick and in bed the whole time. No one needs to see that!!
