36 Weeks

I’m using my old laptop to write this, and it’s giving me so much grief.  I’ve already messed around with it for two hours!  I also apparently forgot my camera cable at home, so there is only iphone photos that I email to myself, because this computer doesn’t have iphoto either.  YAY!

36weeks

How far along? 36 weeks.  It’s hard to believe she’ll be here in about a month!

Total weight gain: I’m up 3lbs from last week.  I’m a hunka chunka burnin’ love.  I’m huge. I’m 39lbs more then I was 8 months ago.  It’s doing wonders for my self esteem.

Baby Size:  The same length as last week, but up to 6lbs now!
Gender: Still a girl.
Stretch marks?  Trying hard to embrace them, since they’ll never go away.Sleep:  I’m sleeping okay.  I’ve been in my brother’s bed for the past two nights, tonight I’ll get into my own room, which is going to be a delight!  I wish I had my pillow with me though.

Best moment this week:  Finally being in the Valley!  It was really hard for me to leave my house.  I’ll blame it on hormones, but I was really upset about it.  I even cried on the plane.  Now that I’m here though, it’s fantastic.  I walked into the baby section in Walmart and looked around and was totally overwhelmed for options.  I think I need to bring my mom with me, because I don’t have a clue what I’m doing.

Miss Anything?  My husband and my pillow.

Food cravings:  No cravings, but I am specific about what I’m wanting to eat.  Green apples and cheddar cheese, toast with peanut butter, bananas and peanut butter.  Peanut butter and anything really.

Movement: On days I’m busy my stomach is so hard I can barely feel her.  So in the beginning of the week I felt her lots, but since I’ve gotten here, it’s been harder to detect movement.  She’s still swimming around though!

Anything making you queasy or sick:  I have no idea what did it, but early yesterday morning I threw up right into my hand.  There was no warning signs at all, I was fine and then I was trying to keep the vomit in my mouth while I searched for a trash can.  Yikes!  (I got covered anyway, ew!)

Symptoms: Just the usual contenders.

Looking forward to:  My first prenatal down here, pedicures with a friend, coffee with the inlaws, dinner with my dad, going to the movies with my sister.  And in a week, my BABY SHOWER!

Items Purchased: Well I’ve determined she definitely needs more newborn and 0-3 clothes.  But I haven’t made it to a store yet.  I did buy wipes, a thermometer, baby clothes hangers and baby wash and lotion.  I also bought myself a comfy pair of PJs, for now and for after, which I am in love with.

Workouts: I did go on a few walks this week, and did my yoga video twice.  I need to make sure I get outside into the glorious sunshine and warm temps.  (Yesterday I was hot in a pair of jeans and a tank top!  It was magic.)

    Welcome back! I just got home last night myself, but am so looking forward to seeing you! You look great, like an almost term pregnant Mom. The last weeks can feel long, but baby will arrive and it will all be worth it.
    See you soon, love ya.
