How far along: 36 weeks
Total weight gain/loss: 23 pounds
Maternity clothes: Yes, not a fan of most clothes these days lol. Towards the end of pregnancy everything seems uncomfortable to me.
Stretch Marks: I think my belly is bigger this time and it amazes me that it keeps stretching. I am keeping my fingers crossed that the stretch marks continue to stay away.
Symptoms: Perioiral dermatitis (rash on my face, but getting better), peeing frequently, very tired, round ligament pain, lower pelvic cramping, some swelling in my hands and feet, I am also so hot all of the time. I feel like I am a furnace.
Best Moment: Getting more stuff ready for baby. We are almost completely ready. Bottles, pumping parts, baby blankets, outfits, swing covers are all washed and ready to go. I am thinking about bringing the swing down to the living room so the girls can start to get used it and I can try to convince Emmy that the swing is not for her and it is for the baby. The little swings at the church nursery are her favorite things to play in. She likes to crawl in them and swing backwards in them:/ That girl I tell ya.
Miss Anything: Sitting comfortably and my belly not getting in the way.
Food cravings: I am pretty sure I could live off of peanutbutter energy balls. Ohh man they are so good. I go through a batch a week. I love to eat them like cereal in a bowl with some milk. mmm mmmm good.
Anything making you queasy or sick: Just eating too much food or to little of food. Getting a little motion sickness in the car again.
Have you started to show yet? Yes- Sticking right out front and bigger than will the other girls. Sooo maybe that means the baby will come sooner than later. A girl can hope right;)
Labor Signs: I had some lower pelvic cramping, but nothing exciting. Which is okay. Once I hit 37 weeks I am all game for labor.
Belly button in or out: Kind of popped. It is popped, but not sticking straight out yet.
Gender: Alight with less than 4 weeks to go, lets start making some guesses. Here are the girls stats: Kenna: went into labor 4 days early had her 3 days early. She was 6 lbs 1 ounce (tiny little peanut) Emmy: went into labor 9 days early and had her 8 days early. She was 6 lbs 12 ounces.
So my guess: October 16th- BOY/ nooo GIRL?? 7 lbs 2 ounces – I really have no idea what the gender is. I think I am going to have to go with girl. It just seems that it is going to be a girl.
What do you guys think???
Wedding ring on or off? Still on.
Happy or Moody most of the time: Moody- I am pretty sure my patience is gone. My poor kids and husband.
Baby’s Heart Rate: 160 again
Looking forward to: Family birthday party, my sisters work puts on a 5k for breast cancer, weekly doctor appointments, hair appointment, and sleeping in:)
On Friday Trav and I were going to relax and watch a movie, but I didn’t feel the best and went to bed at 8:30. I am loads of fun right now. Saturday Trav was gone all day at a golf scramble so the girls and I went to my moms to hang out and checked out a new apple orchard. The girls and I picked some apples, or I should say I picked some apples and the girls ate some apples. I am super excited to make apple crisp with Kenna this week. Emmy just tries to throw things off the counter when she helps so Kenna and I try to keep her distracted with toys and snacks while we bake;)
Sunday we went to church, grocery shopping, had lunch at my dad and step-moms, watched football, and went to a friend’s surprise 30th birthday party. By the end of the day we were all tired and a little crabby.
I had my 36 week doctor appointment today. My doctor did the group B strep test and also checked my cervix. I am dilated 1 cm and 30% effaced. With Kenna I was nothing at this point and with Emmy I was 1 cm dilated and 60% effaced. So we will see:) Otherwise everything looked good. Now I start going to the doctor every week and at 37 weeks the countdown to baby will be on:) !!!!
