36 Weeks

9 months! How in the world did I get here? After 1.5 months of bed rest to keep this baby in until 34 weeks, he has decided he’s quite cozy and likes my belly just fine.

Now that I’m free to move around as much as I want, I’ve been doing yoga daily, working around the new house and making it a home, and even taking Griffin to fun outings like the zoo! The weather is finally starting to change for the better, so we’ve all been able to venture out and not rely quite as much on air conditioning.

36 WeeksPregnancy Stats:

How Far Along – 36 Weeks

Size of Baby – Honeydew, or a head of Romaine Lettuce

Gender – Boy

Total Weight Gain – 9 pounds

What I Miss – Being able to shave my legs easily, clean the house without feeling like I need a nap, and tolerate the heat.

Cravings – I’ve been eating chocolate and dates more, and have planned to eat Italian (lots of gluten free pasta) for my first meal after baby. Mexican sounds good too, as does pizza…pretty much all the foods I’ve given up in order for this baby to get the best nutrition possible!

Symptoms – A few painful contractions, lower back pain (body pillows are now my BFF at night), and discharge that I’ve read is a sign of effacement.

Maternity Clothes – I have a total of about 4 outfits I can wear now. I refuse to purchase any additional maternity clothes, so “sweatpants are all that fit me right now.”

Worst Part of Pregnancy This Week – Thinking I would be having a baby at this point a week ago!

Best Part of Pregnancy This Week – Listening to Griffin talk to the baby and rub my stomach while singing to him.
