How far along? 36 weeks, 5 days.
Total weight gain/loss? 161 +27 – 28 lbs.
Maternity clothes? Yes, and still mixing in pre-pregnancy clothes.
Stretch marks? Nope, still looking good.
Sleep? Sleep is okay. I started to have terrible sleeps on the couch this week. I probably got about 5 hours a night with all the tossing and getting up because I was restless. I decided to sleep in the bed last night it was pretty good. Still tossed and turned but I’m going to try and return to the bed from here on out. I think it will be good for Chris and I to be back closer together for these final few weeks.
Best moment this week – Starting maternity leave 🙂 Friday 27th was my last day. It was a little sad to leave the kids but I am sooooo ready for this little bit of down time. I have a few projects to keep me busy, two baby showers to attend and lots of OB and Naturopathic Dr. appointments to keep me running around. We also got the replacement bassinet from RH this week so she’s got her cozy little place ready and waiting for her.
Miss anything? My normal body.
Movement? She’s still moving lots and still sticking her little foot out on my right side. She shifts her head from time to time and I really think I may pee my pants. I thought I was going to have to call for a clean up in the dairy aisle at the grocery store the other day hahaha. Even though the nurse and dr. both say I have no more room for this baby to grow in me she still seems to have the room to make very big movements in there. She is starting to give some really good jabs in the right ribs. OUCH! (especially when she does it in the middle of the night!)
Food cravings? No appetite at all.
Anything making you queasy or sick? Nope.
Symptoms? Numbness in my right hand, numbness in my right big toe, leg and arm weakness, HEARTBURN, constant peeing, BH, acne, pain my jaw – I still can’t chew on the right side on my mouth and my jaw doesn’t line up probably. Sometimes I see spots or “shooting stars”. Just for a moment then it’s gone.
Labor Signs? Nope.
Belly Button in or out? It’s stretched out flat now.
Wedding rings on or off? On and off depending on the swelling.
Happy or Moody most of the time? Happy. I am ready for this baby to happen!
Looking forward to? My baby shower hosted by my SIL and MIL this weekend and a shower hosted by Chris’ work this Thursday. This baby is getting so spoiled, it’s kind of nuts! I’m making an air balloon mobile for the nursery and I am looking forward to getting the last items we need for her so I can organize and decorate and get things ALL DONE! OH and as of this afternoon I am back to waiting for Chris to finish working in the nursery. He’s had to do a bunch of puttying in the door hinges to make the doors fit back in (took them off to square and re-paint). One step forward, 10 step back. Grrrr.
the day of our shower ❤
