Bumpdate: 36 Weeks

4 weeks to go! Ahh! Its crazy how fast this pregnancy has gone all of a sudden. I can't believe in 4 (I think 3) short weeks we will have a baby! Another kid. I will have TWO kids!

2015-02-24 13.28.21

2015-02-24 13.25.26

How far along? 36 weeks and 3 days (but I am measuring a week ahead for what its worth)

Baby Fruit/Veggie Size: As long as romaine lettuce, weighs around 6+ pounds and 18.5" long

Total weight gain: 25 pounds

Maternity clothes? I am even outgrowing my maternity clothes...rocking sweats and husband's t-shirts now

Sleep: Still going pretty strong with the exception of feeling like I can't get a good breath sometimes.

Best moment this week: Getting our maternity/family pics. I love them! And finishing up the nursery.

Miss Anything? Missing a good cocktail : ) and being able to freely move about and do simple things without losing my breath!

Movement: Constant almost...I don't think this kid ever sleeps! We might be in trouble. They are up in my ribs and down low too, not the most comfortable thing.

Food cravings: The cereal kick has struck again.

Total Aversions: No

Gender: Its a surprise! 

Labor Signs: No

Symptoms: Some swelling at night, general discomfort, and some anxiety that its getting so close. 

Belly Button in or out? Its out! eek!

Mood: Anxious and feeling like I need to get things done but also enjoy the time we have left before baby is on the outside.

Looking forward to: Spending some time as a family as we approach these last weeks.

Bumpdate: 32 Weeks

32 weeks. Well into the third trimester and headed for the home stretch!

2015-02-03 09.59.55

How far along? 32 weeks and 2 days.

Baby Fruit/Veggie Size: Jicama, weighs around 3.75 pounds and 16.5" long

Total weight gain: 21 pounds

Maternity clothes? Yep! And lots of my husband's t-shirts

Sleep: Sleep is going pretty good. Still not the most comfortable but I am able to get a good nights rest.

Best moment this week: Got to get a little glimpse of the baby in a quick ultrasound to check their position. They waved at me! And baby is head down and ready to go.

Miss Anything? Regular clothes that don't require a belly band and being able to bend over easily.

Movement: Always. Lots of rolls and squirms. Baby is also really low so thats fun.

Food cravings: Not really.

Total Aversions: No

Gender: Its a surprise! 

Labor Signs: No

Symptoms: Getting uncomfortable and feeling all around very large. Braxton hicks in the evenings which are also not so comfy. 

Belly Button in or out? On its way out!

Mood: Anxious and excited. Its getting close!

Looking forward to: Finding out what this baby is...I still have no clue and can't wait to find out!

This pregnancy on the left and Molly on the right. The belly is starting to look a little bigger this time around but I can't decide if I am carrying different.

7-8 more weeks!! Ahh!
