How Far Along: 36 Weeks
Total Weight Gain/Loss: 18 pounds, but my only work out from here on out will be walking the dog, so we will soon see how that works for me!
Gender: It’s a girl!
Movement: She was a major mover this past week. Still loves my right rib!
Sleep: Again, hit or miss. I only got up once last night, which hasn’t happened in ages. But on the flipside, I made Tommy sleep on the couch earlier in the week because I could not get past him snoring.
Maternity Clothes: Basically, all maternity except for dresses and some tops.
Symptoms: Well, let’s see – I think I had one contraction. Either that or it was a charlie horse in my lower abs. I will give myself credit for only mildly panicking. And I had some other “progression,” which is too gross to discuss here. There were tears shed over that one. I guess I have been living in denial that a stork was just going to deliver this baby.
Aversions: Still fried foods.
Cravings: Sweets and cereal. And this so sooooo random, but I was in the grocery store the other day and I saw veggie corn dogs and HAD to have them. They are actually pretty darn good with mustard. Who knew!?
I am also craving puppy chow/muddy buddies. I bought all of the ingredients, but haven’t let myself make them yet.
Best Moment this week: Having time to relax this weekend and finish up some last minute things to get ready for her (like installing the car seat bases and packing). I should get my bedding tomorrow, so I am super excited about that! But my to-do list is ever growing.
