Bumpdate #11: 36 Weeks
Baby is about the size of a honeydew melon!
*Last week I wrote that baby was the size of a honeydew but honeydew is actually 36 weeks. Last week baby was the size of a coconut!
Total weight gain: About 25 pounds
Maternity Clothes: I wear a variation of the same thing every day: maternity leggings, sneakers, one of Sam's shirts or one of my two maternity shirts, a cardigan or Sam's hoodie and a scarf.
Stretch marks: Still no stretch marks. Yay for cocoa butter and belly balm.
Belly button: Outie. Starting to see it poke through my shirt!
Wedding ring: On
Movement: Constant, which is making me think that baby is a boy. :) The other morning Sam counted the baby kick 34 times in a minute and yesterday the baby body checked me so hard I thought he/she was trying to get me to fall out of bed. Very funny, little one.
Sleep: Sleeping well! I have to get up a few times every night to go to the bathroom but I haven't experienced any of the dreaded third trimester insomnia yet. I feel lucky that I'm still sleeping so well!
Cravings: Still apricots and they are still out of season. :(
Last doctor appointment: We had one on Friday and have appointments every week now. Baby has dropped and I'm measuring right at 36 weeks! We are right on track!
Feeling: Hips and back are tired but feeling pretty great for the most part. Honestly I thought I would feel more pregnant at this point but I guess since I have been gradually getting more and more pregnant it doesn't feel as extreme as I expected. Still walking and making the most of the spring weather (before we get snow again tomorrow.) I can't believe we get to meet our baby in just a few weeks! Heartburn isn't quite as bad now that baby has dropped.
Missing anything: Lying on stomach and back, yoga, bouldering, a world without heartburn
