How far along: 36 weeks and the size of a honeydew – over 18.5 inches long and almost 6 pounds.
Gender: Baby Girl
Sleep: Not great but better than it has been lately (knocks on wood).
Best moment this week: My BFF Christy gave birth to her precious son Eli, and everyone is healthy and doing well! I’m so thrilled that we were able to share this pregnancy journey together and now motherhood – there is nothing like having a best friend to go through such a life-changing time with and with whom you can share every crazy thought and moment knowing that there will be absolutely no judgement. If only we lived closer so that our babes could have regular play dates!
Miss anything: It’s really becoming difficult to move around comfortably which is making it harder and harder to be productive and get things done before Molly’s arrival. Thank God Mike has been a saint and has been doing as much as he can to help me out, but it still gets frustrating.
Movement/Symptoms: I am still feeling a lot of movement and am constantly watching my stomach shift from side to side forming crazy shapes. Besides that, I’m still feeling a good bit of heartburn and starting to swell in my hands and feet. I think I’ve given up on getting my wedding rings back on since I took them off about a week ago, and I barely recognize my feet and sausage toes anymore :).
Cravings: Nothing new here… Ice cream, chocolate, jalepenos.
Looking forward to: Getting this nursery in order! We still have a couple of things that have been delayed that I’m anxiously waiting on to help feel the room more complete – mainly the glider and bedding. I finally started washing all of the precious little clothes, blankets and towels today, so I’m excited to get all of that put away soon and feel a little more prepared. We still don’t have anything up on the walls yet, but I’m hoping we can tackle some of that this week. I’m also looking forward to my 36 week appointment this week where they will externally feel to see what position Molly is in – hoping she is head down and planning to stay there!
