36 weeks. . . officially 9 months pregnant! Wow. That is just crazy.
Your baby is gaining about an ounce a day. He now weighs almost 6 pounds and is more than 18 1/2 inches long.
And he is pointed in the right direction – head down at the last OB appointment!
Some thoughts from the past 2 weeks:
HOT! This morning, Scott woke up and found me in just a t-shirt and underwear, snuggled with my body pillow and no covers. He said just the right thing: “You’re hot!” J I woke up in the middle of the night, so hot, so I took off my flannel pants and threw off all the covers. I can’t sleep without the body pillow, which unfortunately, has a very warm flannel cover. I am usually the one that goes to bed in long sleeves and pants and hogs all the covers, so this is a huge change!
Reflux – I never knew acid reflux could be so awful. Thankfully it only really bothers with working out, but it keeps going after I am done with my work out. Last night I rode the bike on the trainer in the basement and OMG, I thought I was going to die, ok, not really, but almost! I was still able to get my workout done, and took a handful of tums afterwards. . .
Swelling – it has started! Especially after a long day at work. . . boo. Thankfully only in the ankles – wedding ring still fits!
Tired – I feel asleep on the couch last night at 8:30! Scott woke me up at 9 because I was snoring!
Hungry – this baby is growing and needs food! I make it through the day with lots of (healthy) snacks. I don’t think I would have survived my pregnancy without oat and chocolate fiber one bars.
Excited – we got the car seat last night, so I think we are *ready* for the baby. . . meaning we have all the ‘stuff’ but are still both totally freaked out about bringing home a baby! Scott commented last night that it will be so weird to put a baby in the car seat and bring it home. I can’t agree more!
Belly Button watch– still not an outie. . . Scott is still waiting.
The nursery is almost all put together . . . hope to have a post up later this week with the finished product!
Less than one month to go. ..
