How Far Along: 36 Weeks.
Size of baby: Large cantaloupe (still.)
Total Weight Gain/Loss: I haven't weighted myself yet this week. I'm sure it is a scary number. I had Starbucks for breakfast and Cracker Barrel for lunch so you do the math...
Maternity Clothes: Yup. And I got three new dresses this week from Targhetto to see me through the post-partum phase.
Gender: A beloved son!
Movement: Considering his lack of room I'd say he's still pretty busy in there doing his thing!
Sleep: I have not been sleeping at all. It isn't the peeing or the heartburn, it is the racing brain.
What I miss: Not struggling to make it in the heat. I have never been someone who thrives when it is hot but this heat has limited me severely. I also miss being able to rotate my body while driving. My range of motion seems very limited!
Cravings: None this week.
Symptoms: Last week I wore the same outfit in my 35 week picture to church and THREE people told me I was too small to be delivering in less than 3 weeks. Last night I wore a form-fitting pregnancy tank and THREE different people all asked if I was planning to deliver that very night. What a difference an outfit can make, right? So, I guess the biggest symptom is a burgeoning belly.
Best Moment this week: During my NST they kept trying to tell me I was having epic contractions on par with labor. I kept insisting I was not! I knew better than them in this instance. Turns out the sensors were picking up my breathing movements. Silly!
