Warning:  My just got back from yoga and take a quick pic look

36 Week Interview

How far along? 36 weeks

Baby’s size? A honeydewn – or larger perhaps.  Today we found out that our little gal isn’t so little.  She is in the 93% percentile weight in at 7lbs 5oz already when they are usually around 6.5 lbs at this point.  Lets just hope she is tall too!

Days until next doc appointment? 1 week

Total weight gain/loss? about 25 pounds

Maternity clothes?  I’m in the ‘whatever fits’ mode now

Stretch marks? Not that I see – but I also can’t really see my feet when I look straight down either

Sleep: Sleeping pretty well now but I think she is sleep training me a little.  Waking up in the middle of the night just because is good prep for those late feedings.

Best moment this week:  An ultrasound to see her!  Although it wasn’t planned – the doctor thought we were measuring small and wanted it checked out – baby was playing a trick on us all and everything is perfect.  It was SOO fun to see her after the last 18 weeks of just feeling her.  Her little nose, cheeks and lips…..oh I can’t wait to kiss them!  Here is a photo we snuck while they were out of the room.  You can see her nose and lips pressed up towards us:


Movement: Yes, lots of movement and with a big baby that means lots of weird tummy rolls from the outside view

Food cravings: Ice cream!  Maybe that is contributing to our monster baby??

Anything make you queasy or sick?  Not right now

Have you started to show yet?  To the point where people always say ‘How much longer do you have??’

Missing anything?  Walking normal – although a nice waddle really makes you slow down and take in the things around you

Gender? GIRL

Labor signs? A few braxton hicks but nothing crazy

Belly button: Innie – although that could change any minute

Wedding rings on or off?  On for now

Happy or moody most of the time?  Getting to the point where I’m about ready to be done

Weekly symptoms:  Some low back pain but if you had a 7.5lb baby to haul around, you would too!

Looking forward to: Another week in the books and another week closer to meeting her
