How far along? 36 weeks
Total weight gain: 19 pounds--under 20 but not by much. haha
Maternity clothes? oh yes but I also wear a few shirts that run big...like the one in this picture is not maternity but plenty big that it fits over my bump
Sleep: not good....but if I stay up until 11 or 12 then I sleep descent....however then I feel like I HAVE to nap while Ella naps. It's a vicious cycle.
Miss anything? a good run, holding Ella while we read books and not being uncomfortable. I still rock her before nap and bedtime and we make it work pretty easily but there's obviously a bump in the way. I also miss not running out of breath after picking up two toys...haha
Movement: yep--this week she is hanging out on the right side.
Food Cravings: ORANGES! ugh-can't get enough. and cake.
Anything making you sick or queasy: still the dishwasher.
Labor signs: nothing major
Symptoms: just a lot of tiredness...even just my body being tired after doing small chores.
Belly Button in or out? in
Wedding rings on or off? on
Ella: Is possibly getting more of an idea about this baby. We started putting the nursery together a bit more--with help from my friend, Elizabeth--and so she is seeing baby's room and she seems to maybe be understanding more about the baby being in my tummy and coming soon. But really...who knows!
Mood: I get grumpy at night when I'm trying to get Ella to eat and Kyle's still not home but only a little grumpy. :)
Excitement this week: I had my 36 week appointment today and it went well....my doc said the baby's head is really low and I'm 1 1/2 cm so nothing too thrilling but there's been progress. So that's good. Ella had to come with me today and she was WONDERFUL! She sat like a big girl and was quiet like I had asked her. She even showed off to the doctor a bit but telling her what things start with different letters. Oh dear. But she was really good. I was very proud of her.
Looking forward to: not being pregnant.
Ella got in on a few of these....haha.
